Abstract: Problems of accumulation, transportation and storage of gases or gas mixtures are quite frequent. Transportation and storage of gas in hydrate form may be an alternative to traditional technologies. We propose a method and the basic elements of production technology of large ice-gas-hydrate blocks. These blocks can be manufactured in the form of a regular hexagonal prism or cylinder. An innovative design solution of gas-hydrate blocks construction - formation of a mixture of granulated (minimum porosity) and crushed hydrate with a specific ratio – is proposed and tested. In addition, to improve stability self-conservation of the formed blocks with ice is proposed.

Abstract: The reasons for increased formation of asphalt, resin and paraffin deposits in the fields of the Volgograd region are considered. It is shown that an important factor in the formation of paraffin, resin and asphalt in the affected fields is the formation of stable oil-water emulsions, which promotes active involvement of emulsified water in the sediment. A combined reagent, allowing to destroy oil emulsion and significantly reduce the amount of deposits on the surface of the oil field equipment is proposed.

Abstract: Proceedings of international conferences in the field of modern teaching aids such as ITEC, SCS, SigGraph, International Conference on Artificial Reality and Tele-existence suggest that «computer training facilities» are increasingly used in aviation, navigation, power engineering, military forces, medicine and aeronautics, as well as the areas where physical training is associated with these difficulties, particularly in the training of personnel engaged in dangerous and critical areas of production, and those areas where their use is strictly regulated by law (simulators). Moreover, at the moment there are very few serious studies on the definition and development of the concepts of efficiency and key performance of simulators in industry and in education.
This article summarizes the main results of the studies of the performance of simulators (both for training centers of enterprises, as well as for educational institutions), conducted at the Research Institute of Electronic Educational Resources of TyumGNGU.
The question of the application of modern computer-based technologies for creating a virtual reality (VR) and the issue of the use of simulators in the Learning Management System (LMS), E-learning, distance education system is considered separately.

Abstract: Negative influence of oil on water bodies, including the sources of drinking water is established. The reason for this is the primitive preparation of fresh and bottom water for reservoir pressure maintenance, i.e. by mechanical methods only. A technological solution to treat fresh water and bottom water with the use of innovative equipment for reservoir pressure maintenance systems is proposed.
