Professional biography

One of the leading scientists in the field of well drilling, a highly qualified teacher, an experienced organizer of higher education and science, Boranbai Tovbasarovich Ratov was born on November 13, 1969. In 1987 he graduated from secondary school No. 19.  In 1987-1989 he served in the army.  After the army, he entered the preparatory department of KazPTI named after V.I. Lenin (now KazNITU named after K.I.Satpayev). In 1995, B.T. Ratov graduated with honors from the K.I. Satpayev Kazakh National Technical University (Faculty of Oil and Gas) and was invited to the Department of Well Drilling Technology and Technology. In parallel with his teaching work, he studied at KazNTU, and received a diploma with honors in the second engineering specialty "development of oil and gas fields".

At the Department of Well Drilling Technology and Technology, B.T. Ratov worked as a trainee teacher, then as a teacher, and since 2001 as a senior lecturer. Since 2000, B.T. Ratov At the same time, he was engaged in administrative work: Deputy Director of the Institute of Geology and Oil and Gas Business, and from 2003 to July 2008 – Deputy Director of the Geological Exploration Institute (at KazNTU). In addition to his main job at KazNTU, B.T. Ratov taught at the Caspian Public University (Caspian University) as head of the Department of "Geology of Oil and Gas" GNG and "Oil and Gas Business" (2008-2014).

In the period from 2014 to 2017 at KazNITU named after K.I.Satpayev, Doctor of Technical Sciences, assoc.Professor, B.T. Ratov headed the department of "Technology and technique of drilling wells". Over the years, their department has risen in the university's rating from 56th place (2014) to 2nd place (2016). In 2017, due to the reorganization of the Institute of Oil and Gas at KazNTU named after K.I.Satpayev and the liquidation of the Department of Technology and Well Drilling Techniques, B.T. Ratov as a scientific supervisor carried out projects as part of the state program of the Science Committee of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan. In total, in the period from 2015-2024. completed with a recommendation on the implementation of the obtained scientific results of the 5th project, the deadline for the completion of the fourth project is 2024. In the period 2017-2022. B.T. Ratov was engaged in teaching at Caspian University as a professor. 

B.T. Ratov is a mining engineer, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor. Since August 2022, he has been the head of the Department of Geophysics and Seismology at the Kazakh National Research Technical University named after K.I.Satpayev.

B.T. Ratov is a prominent scientist in the field of drilling and development of wells for various purposes, a highly qualified teacher who has trained a large team of young specialists for the geological survey and the oil industry of Kazakhstan. He made a great contribution to the development of scientific research in the field of drilling and well operation. B.T.Ratov has published more than 300 scientific and pedagogical works, including 7 monographs and 5 textbooks, 30 patents for inventions, more than 57 publications included in the Scopus and Web of Science databases, the Hirsch Index (h-index) - 8, Web of science -2, Google Scholar (h-index): Citations – 460, Indice h – 10. indice i11 – 13. Has trained 5 PhD doctors and more than 35 Masters of Technical Sciences. 

B.T. Ratov regularly makes presentations at national and international scientific forums on the problems of the exploration and oil and gas industries of Kazakhstan, fruitfully cooperates with employees of industrial enterprises and research institutes: Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania, Russia, Uzbekistan, Tatarstan, Bashkortostan, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakhstan.

In an effort to learn and evaluate new achievements in the field of drilling science, new effective methods of opening and developing productive formations, Ratov actively conducts internships in industrial and scientific organizations. 

B.T.Ratov's conscientious, highly qualified work in scientific research for the training of engineering personnel has been awarded numerous certificates of honor and medals by KazNITU named after K.I.Satpayev, Caspian University, the Geological Survey and the Ministry of Oil and Gas of Kazakhstan. He is the holder of the state grant "the best teacher of the Higher School of the Republic of Kazakhstan".
