Southwest Petroleum University

Southwest Petroleum University is a petroleum undergraduate college founded in the face of the new China's Chaoyang. It is a co-established University between the central and local governments, mainly under the management of the Sichuan Provincial People's Government. In 2013, the school was selected as one of the 100 universities in the "Basic Capacity Building Project of Universities in the Midwest of China". In September 2017, it was selected as the first batch of "double first-class" world-class discipline construction universities in China.

In the middle and late 1950s, China's petroleum industry was quite backward, far from meeting the needs of national construction, which aroused great concern of the Party and the state. Chairman Mao Zedong visited Longchang Gas Mine in Sichuan Province. Deng Xiaoping, member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee, standing member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee and general secretary of the Central Secretariat, personally chaired the Sichuan Oil and Gas Field. Exploration and development. In March 1958, three exploratory wells located in Dongguan, Wusheng, and Daying, Suining, in Nanchong, spewed high-yield oil flow, shaking the whole country. General Yu Qiuli, Minister of Petroleum Industry, took the town of Nanchong and launched the SiChuanzhong Petroleum Congress. In order to accelerate the development of petroleum and natural gas resources in Sichuan and train technical cadres for the development of petroleum and natural gas industry in the Southwest Cooperative Zone, the State decided to establish a second petroleum university, which is located in Nanchong City, a key town in the north of Sichuan where the petroleum battle headquarters is located.

In August 1958, the Ministry of Petroleum Industry enrolled 643 first-term students in Chengdu, and then appointed Comrade Ma Zai, Director of the Capital Construction Department, to lead a group of young experts and cadres to Nanchong to plan the establishment of the College. On September 20, the Ministry of Petroleum Industry, together with the Ministry of Education, formally approved the establishment of Sichuan Petroleum Institute with the consent of the State Council. Since then, with the construction and development of China's oil and gas industry, the school has begun to break the rules of running schools after students.

In July 1970, the school was renamed Southwest Petroleum Institute with the approval of the State Council. In March 2000, the school was transferred to Sichuan Province, which was co-constructed by the central and local governments and mainly managed by the Sichuan Provincial People's Government. In 2003, with the approval of the Ministry of Education, the school was upgraded to a university. In December 2005, it was officially renamed Southwest Petroleum University. On November 1, 2008, China National Petroleum and Gas Corporation, China Petrochemical Corporation and China National Offshore Petroleum Corporation signed an agreement with the Sichuan Provincial People's Government to jointly build Southwest Petroleum University.

The school began to recruit postgraduates in 1978 and obtained the right to confer doctoral degree in 1986. In 1988, the Oil and Gas Field Development Engineering (Joint Petroleum Machinery Engineering) became the first national key disciplines. In 1989, the State Key Laboratory of Oil and Gas Reservoir Geology and Development Engineering approved the construction, and a post-doctoral research mobile station was established in 1991.

After 60 years of construction, the school has developed into a work-oriented, multi-disciplinary, coordinated development, outstanding advantages of oil and gas and distinctive characteristics of the university. The major disciplines of oil are in the leading level in the country.
