Boris graduated with honors from the Geological Department of the Moscow State University (MSU) in 2009 where he also completed his postgraduate studies in 2013 investigating thermal conductivity of gas and gas hydrates saturated sediments. During his postgraduate research, Boris created a methodology for investigating thermal conductivity of gas- and hydrate-bearing sediments, identified key factors of thermal conductivity, and compared laboratory and real values of thermal conductivity of bottom sediments in the shelf of Laptev Sea.
While studying at MSU, Boris Bukhanov participated in a variety of research projects of the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, Russian Academy of Science, VNIIGAS, Total and others. In 2007, he took part in deep-water drilling in the Lake Baikal, one of the modules of international studies of natural gas hydrates. In 2011 and 2012, Boris took part in the Russia – USA polar expedition to the shelf of Laptev Sea that was part of the international project Investigation of Methane Potential of Seas in East Arctic.
In 2013, Boris Bukhanov started working as a Geologist in the Department for Testing Physical and Mechanical Properties of Frozen Sediments at the Design Institute Fundamentproekt. At the Institute, he participated in projects for the construction of the South Tambey gas field and Yamal LNG plant in Sabetta, Sila Sibiri gas pipeline, power plants in Yakutsk, systems on Yamburg gas field and others.
