Direction of scientific activity is devoted to hydrogeology, geothermal, thermogasdynamic, methods of quality control of natural gas. He developed the theoretical basis of the relationship geotemperature fields formation and location of oil and gas fields. Under his leadership, the industry created a comprehensive system of quality control of natural gas, developed many normative documents, methodologies, instructions.
