Abstract: The paper presents a mathematical model and the results of testing of parallel software for computer clusters, designed to simulate the propagation of seismic waves in continuous linear media. The generalized method of direct second-order accuracy in space and time allows the conditionally stable evaluation of the synthetic seismograms for absorbing media with strongly varying parameters. The developed software allows to set the boundary conditions of the free surface for any smooth topography of solids. To reduce the effect of the reflected waves from the fictitious boundaries energy-absorbing boundary conditions were used. The program provides for the possibility of local refining of computational grid in areas where high-frequency waves are of particular interest. In order to justify the adequacy of the mathematical and computational models these were applied to solve problems with an analytical solution

Abstract: Two industrial simulators on the basis of training wells are considered. The simulators are used to train the staff of workover crews to detect and eliminate blowups. Training tasks are performed by a crew using the operating equipment of real well with additional devices connected to the computer. Both simulators take into account the specific character of the equipment of each well, allow to set a wide range of initial parameters of the equipment and those of well design, and also allow year-round operation. This technology greatly reduces the training time and increases its efficiency.

Abstract: The approaches to the infrared spectral analysis of mud in the sloughs of clay in the process of well drilling are considered. In one approach infrared analysis is terminated while drilling continues. In other approaches analysis is conducted both under collapsing clay, and shows of different rock. The analysis is carried out without regard to the clay but with definition of rock graduation or, under grades (25–75)% and (10–90)%, penetration is carried out with the analysis of individual minerals and given its past history.

Abstract: The flow of viscous incompressible fluid in a long cylindrical pore, with the inner surface covered with a permeable porous layer is considered in two mathematical models. The first of these uses the Brinkman equation for the porous layer and the second replaces the porous layer with Navier-slip condition on the wall of the pore. The feasibility and validity of the proposed models to calculate the displacement of oil from porous media are discussed

Abstract: This paper presents a method of solving the problem of choosing a rational scheme for the transport of gas via GTN with a capacity margin. This problem is relevant to the dispatchers under no load conditions in the transmission system consisting of several gas pipeline corridors connected by inter-system bridges. Such situations arise either when producing companies reduce gas supply, or when consumers significantly reduce gas demand. The main problem here is that technological solutions are multi-variant. Thus, the gas transport operating organizations face the problem of rational choice option of gas transmission scheme, saving fuel and energy resources (FER) spent on their own technological needs of gas transportation

Abstract: This paper presents a system for automatic collection and processing of data received from DMSP satellites. The raw data are averaged and placed into the global map-grid. The images of night lights received and averaged for the year are placed in a special storage for multidimensional data sets. To estimate the volume of flared gas we used a regression of parameters of the visible flame and flared gas volumes, known for some wells. The results of the analysis are visualized on a platform of Google Maps.

Abstract: Various problems and methods of updating the optimization models of planning Refinery/Petrochemical Complex in the simulation systems of RPMS type are considered. The most reliable way in terms of getting solutions has been implemented in the form of specialized options, developed in addition to the basic configuration of the system to account for the RPMS in the models of planning variable rates of energy consumption. The proposed method can also be implemented in other systems of production planning.
