Kazakov A. I., Lyapin A. Yu., Nekuchaev V. O.Investigation of the asphalt and wax depositsformation kinetics in high-paraffin oil transport on pipelines “Usa – Ukhta” and “Ukhta – Yaroslavl” by the methods of “cold finger” and optical microscopy
In this paper experimental studies of asphalt and wax deposits formation, the temperature of wax crystallization starting and the temperature of mass crystallization in oils transported on pipelines “Usa – Ukhta” and “Ukhta – Yaroslavl” were made using two methods: the method of “cold finger” and optical microscopy in polarized
light. Experiments were carried out with crude oil and oil with the addition of chemical reagents. Of the three studied inhibitors the most effective inhibitor is Proshinor. The method of optical microscopy showed that Proshinor inhibitor reduces the ability of wax crystals to aggregate and form clusters. The values of the temperature of the starting of wax crystallization measured in this work by the cold finger method are usually
4–5 degrees higher than the values measured by optical microscopy

Chernyatin A. S., Razumovsky I. A., Zorin A. E., Zorin N. E.Evaluation of the crack resistance of a pipeline with an internal crack by the deformation response on the outer surface
The aim of the presented work is to show the possibility of estimating the crack resistance of a pipeline with a surface crack located on the inner side of the wall using the recorded deformation response on the outer surface during loading / unloading of the pipeline. The solution of this problem is carried out in two stages: at the first stage, the localization and geometrical parameters of the defect are determined on the basis of mathematical processing of displacements fields of points on the pipeline surface in the defected area recorded by optical methods. At the second stage, the singular and nonsingular terms of stress expansion in the vicinity of the crack front are calculated to apply the crack resistance criteria of the so-called two-parameter fracture mechanics.

Nekuchaev V. O., Mikheev М. M.Influence of heat treatment and ultrasound on the viscosity of high-paraffinic oil of the Kyrtaelsk deposit of Komi Republic
The paper studies the flow curves, from which the values of viscosity, high-par-affin oil of the Kyrtael field of the Komi Republic at low temperatures, exposed to heat (heat treatment) and ultrasonic treatment. It is shown that the effect of acoustic treat-ment on the rheology of the oil is similar to the effect of heat treatment when heated to the same temperature. Heating up to 80°C significantly reduces the viscosity and thix-otropic properties of Kyrtael oil at low temperatures at both heating methods. Heat treatment and ultrasonic heating to temperatures in the range of 40-60 °C significantly worsen the same rheological properties.

Terentyev A. A., Durkin S. M.A comparison of the different approaches of the forecast of technological parameters of development of deposits high-viscosity oils
As the reserves of light oils are developed more and more ahead of time, the problem of involving abnormally viscous oils and bitumens in the active development of huge resources becomes more and more urgent from year to year. The experience of laboratory and field studies accumulated to date shows that the most effective and industrially developed technology for the development of such resources is thermal methods of oil production. One of the most important tasks in the design of fields is to predict the volume of oil production. It is extremely important for the management of
oil companies to determine the payback period based on the forecast of recoverable products. In this work is the calculation of the technological parameters of thermal-mining development for the sector B mining unit 2T-4, which will be developed mod-ernized thermal-mining system. Forecasting of productive characteristics was per-formed using numerical modeling, construction of one-factor statistical regression on the actual data of experimental sites OPU-2 bis, OPU-3 bis and using an analytical method for calculating technological indicators of development.
