Andrey Sergeev states “I am excited to join Genoil and I strongly believe that the Company’s recent first-class results at the UFA Institute of Petroleum Refining and Petrochemistry of Republic of Bashkortostan, which converted heavy sour crude oil to light oil, should enable us to put Genoil in a market leadership position.”
Andrey obtained a Doctor of Philosophy in Geology and a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Moscow Oil and Gas University in 2008 and 1987 respectively. Prior to that, he also earned a Master of Science in Production Engineering from the Tyumen Industrial Institution, Russia in 1994.

Genoil is an independent exploration, production company which has experience drilling for oil and gas in the Caribbean. The company specializes in heavy oil development and is focused on long term growth. Genoil has developed a proprietary, state of the art patented advanced hydroconversion process technology (heavy to light & sour to sweet). This advanced Hydroconversion Upgrader (GHU), converts heavy crude oils and refinery bottoms into clean crude that is much more valuable. This more valuable crude produces a higher value product slate meaning that this new crude oil refines into clean-burning fuels for transportation. The company is deeply focused on the downstream transportation refining industries especially shipping. Hydroconversion is a common and proven desulfurization process, capable of processing various feedstocks ranging from crude oil to Naptha.
The Genoil Hydroconversion Upgrader (GHU®), is an advanced upgrading and desulfurization technology, which converts heavy or sour crude oil into much more valuable light low sulphur oil for a very low cost. The GHU achieves 96% pitch conversion and 95% desulfurization with an operating cost of up to 75% less than the competition. For Conoco Canada Ltd, Genoil converted their bitumen of 6-8.5 API and converted it to 24.5 API. We also removed 92% of the sulphur reducing the amount from 5.14 % to below 0.24%. These results were taken by Conoco Canada Ltd, who had them analysed by Core Laboratories, one of the largest service providers of core and fluid analysis in the petroleum industry.
