Abstract: Experimental data on the changes in the distribution of displacing fluid saturation in the pore space of porous plane-parallel array filled with displaced fluid with greater viscosity are obtained. The mathematical model of instability of two-phase flow of displacement fluid in the form of fingers (fingers) is studied. The results of modeling are compared with experimental results.

Abstract: We have previously identified slow evolution of the viscoelasticity modules of heavy crude oil. Shear modulus was measured during 72 hours at frequencies of 0,5, 5 and 50 Hz at different temperatures. The dependence of complex shear modulus on the deformation amplitude was studied with a rotational rheometer. The study showed a logarithmic growth of the nonlinearity parameter in time for this sample of oil. It was established experimentally that the complex shear modulus depends linearly on the amplitude of the shear perturbations, which is possible with the shear modulus linearly depending on the shear modulus of the medium deformation. Based on the Boltzmann statistical approach to the determination of the rate of transition to equilibrium , the model differential equation describing the slow kinetics of the changes in the internal parameters of the medium was obtained. It is shown that unlike the exponential time dependence, the slow kinetics leads to logarithmic time dependence of the perturbation decay.

Abstract: A laboratory technique for determining core-derived absolute permeability tensor for different types of anisotropy is presented. The method for determining core-derived lateral anisotropy and further, permeability tensors is based on measuring the rate of ultrasonic waves passing through the sample on the lateral surface of the core. Using this method, we first established the presence of lateral anisotropy and then, in accordance with established type of anisotropy of the rock sample we cut out the required number of cores for hydrodynamic and other studies. The results of determining the absolute permeability tensor, translucent characteristics, linear dimensions, as well as the results capillarimetrics are presented. These data confirm the tensor nature of absolute permeability, effective diameter and translucent characteristics. The method also allows to determine the permeability tensor of phase permeabilities, limiting gradients and to construct nonlinear filtration laws.

Abstract: The behavior of buried pipeline with a section in soft ground under dynamic and in particular seismic impact is considered. It is shown that under certain soil conditions and pipeline parameters local forms of vibrations caused by the above characteristics of the ground are possible. A quantitative assessment of the length of the section, provoking the specified behavior is given. A comparative analysis of the dynamic deformations of local forms and traveling waves is performed. It is shown that this feature, not regulated by the applicable norms, may play a decisive role in ensuring the strength of the facility section located in soft ground.

Abstract: The effect of the promotion with zinc and chromium, as well as treatment with NaOH solution of the structure, acid and catalytic properties of type MFI zeolite is studied. It is shown that the crystal structure of the zeolite remains unchanged after the introduction of promoters, alkaline treatment and use in the conversion of propane and butane fraction (PBF). At the same time, the promotion decreases the total acidity and the amount of strongly acidic centers accompanied by increased selectivity of aromatic hydrocarbons formation. After alkaline treatment the selectivity of aromatic hydrocarbons formation also increases, while the force of distribution of acid sites on the zeolite remains unchanged.

Abstract: The article considers molecular weight distribution of the products of synthesis of hydrocarbons from CO and H2 as an important aspect for understanding the mechanism of the process and its implementation. It is asserted that the synthesis of hydrocarbons can be seen as reducing the polymerization of carbon monoxide with intermediate formation of oxymethylene radicals and production of alkanes and water.

Abstract: The article is devoted to solving the problem of registration of liquid impurities (water) in the multiphase flow of gas producing wells. To solve the problem flow characteristics were studied in laboratory using a piezoelectric transducer. The results were processed using ANOVA techniques of factorial design. The optimal frequency range for finding the parameters of the impact of dropping liquid impurities and determining its amount was identified.

Abstract: Possible technical interactions arising in the implementation of projects of offshore oil and gas fields development are considered and identified. These are clustered and organized into an hierarchical structure. The proposed object-oriented model of the interactions and the description of its methodology using UML-notation allow developing custom applications for managing interactions.
