    ABSTRACT: This paper is devoted to a study of the characteristic features of the composition and structure of crude oils from terrigenous Devonian producing deposits in the Minnibaevskii section of the Romashkino and Pervomai fields. Using the SynOil program, we identified the features of the molecular weight distribution of n-paraffins, cyclohexanes, and monoalkylbenzenes associated with the formation and transformation conditions in the crude oil deposits.

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this work was to optimize a chemical method for preventing wax and scale deposition in the aqing Yushulin oil field (China). We studied the characteristics of the crude oil and the water injected into the formation in different sections of the oil field. Preliminary testing of the compositions for wax and scale removal was done as applied to this oil field, and we determined the optimal concentrations of the reagents. We estimated the wax dissolution rate, the effectiveness of wax and scale inhibition, and the degree of viscosity reduction in the crude oil. The reagents were chemically modified with the aim of improving their effectiveness. The process of wax crystallization in the crude oil containing wax inhibitors was studied by differential scanning calorimetry.

    ABSTRACT: Some possible reactions of cyclohexyl phenyl sulfide with water are examined. Cyclohexyl phenyl sulfide was chosen as a model compound of heavy oils. Quantumchemical calculations of the difference in the energy of the products and reagents and the energy barrier of the reactions are performed and the temperature dependence of the change in Gibbs energy free energy is determined. It is shown that the data obtained using the density functional theory agree with the experimental data and could be used for more detailed study of the mechanisms of aquathermolysis reactions, including catalytic effects.

    ABSTRACT: A new promising additive to motor fuels is 2,3-dimethylfuran, which is distinguished by high calorific value and low hygroscopicity. 2,5-Dimethylfuran is obtained from 5-hydroxymethylfurfuraldehyde, which in turn can be obtained by hydrolysis or isomerization of fructose or other carbohydrates. In this work, we study the synthesis of 5-hydroxymethylfurfuraldehyde from fructose in different aqueous—organic media with acid catalysis. Using a mixture of 2-propanol and water resulted in a 69.9% yield of 5-hydroxymethylfurfuraldehyde.

    ABSTRACT: A review of recent publications shows rapid development of the in-situ combustion method for the production of high-viscosity crude oils and natural bitumens. Technologies have been developed for application of in-situ combustion after steam-assisted gravity drainage. The use of catalysts is becoming more and more important. We explain the catalytic effect of clays and metals on low-temperature and high-temperature combustion processes.

    ABSTRACT: We have studied the qualitative and quantitative composition of hydrocarbons formed in the hydropyrolysis of sapropelic coals. It was observed that 30-50% of pyrolytic conversions of the organic mass in the studied sapropelic coals at 420°C under hydrogen pressure are associated with the formation of liquid hydrocarbons typical of petroleum kerosene and diesel fractions. It was noted that the hydropyrolysis products contain more alkanes and fewer alkenes and cycloalkanes than the hydrogen-free pyrolysis products. Based on the composition of unbranched, isoprenoid, and cyclic pyrogenic hydrocarbon biomarkers, we draw conclusions concerning the marine origin of the original biomass in the studied coals and the pathways for the formation of hydropyrolysis products from lipid structural components.

    ABSTRACT: The problem of combined thermal and acid treatment in a multilayer crude-oil reservoir is examined for two-phase flows of fluid (water and crude oil) in a porous medium. A model in the form of a “bundle” of cylindrical capillaries of different radii is used to describe changes in the porosity and permeability of the porous medium as a result of chemical reaction between the acid and rock matrix, and the coalescence rate of the channels due to dissolution of pore walls is calculated based on the Smoluchowski equation. The recovery of crude oil in conventional flooding is compared with flooding with injection of a heat-transfer agent, and flooding using acid and the combination technology. It is shown that thermal treatment combined with acid treatment of a multilayer crude-oil formation provides the most effective oil production conditions.

    ABSTRACT: We take five parameters describing the properties of rocks (drillability, abrasive resistance, hardness, plasticity, and compressive strength) as the initial factors used for principal component analysis. Using this method, we obtained two principal components and composite scores, which we then treated using cluster analysis. These operations allow us to make a comprehensive evaluation of all 20 strata in the Dagang oil field (China). The results show that the 20 strata can be divided into four groups, which can provide a basis for drill bit selection and drilling design in the Dagang oil field.

    ABSTRACT: In order to process refinery gas streams into environmentally friendly motor fuels, it has been proposed to use superacid catalytic systems based on sulfated zirconium oxide, mixed heteropoly acids, and nanosized nickel powder supported on acid-activated montmorillonite. We have studied the characteristics of the effects of temperature and catalyst composition on the oligomerization process of the butane—butene fraction, obtaining C5-C12 iso-olefins.

    ABSTRACT: Sedimentation of cuttings limits application of gas drilling through a horizontal well section. We have constructed a theoretical model of two-layer flow as applied to flow of the gas and solid particles; we have developed a diffusion theory for gas drilling conditions for horizontal well sections. The calculations are performed using data from real wells. The calculations show that when drilling a horizontal section, a cutting bed will inevitably be formed and we need to control sedimentation of the cuttings by regulating the gas flow velocity. For low gas velocities, the resistance of the particles to motion is mainly created as a result of their collisions with the well wall in the cutting bed zone. For high gas flow velocities, the major resistance is created as a result of collisions of the particles with the well wall in the two-layer flow zone. Based on previous studies of two-layer flow and the cutting bed, it was established that gas injection should be done at the bottom of the well when gas drilling a horizontal section. The ascending gas flow velocity should be 1.5 times higher than the particle sedimentation rate. Only under such conditions is control of cutting bed formation possible.

    ABSTRACT: We have studied the characteristic features of the interaction between motor-oil additives for different functional purposes with the aim of identifying synergism in the additive combinations. It is shown that the interactions should be studied using methods simulating the operating conditions for the motor oil. We identified synergistic combinations of some next-generation additives, which can be used to reduce the total additive content in the oil without having a negative impact on its quality.

    ABSTRACT: We have developed a flush fluid for alkaline oxidation degradation of the mud cake for inhibited drilling fluid. The permeability of the smeary core when treated with the flush fluid increases by 125.6%. The mechanism of the washing process was studied by IR spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and energy-dispersive x-ray spectrometry. The polymer backbone is broken down by the strong oxidant; the oligomers or even lower molecular weight fragments formed in this case are easily washed out.

    ABSTRACT: Based on the characteristics of coalbed methane formations and the parallel-connection pipeline principle, we have formulated a model for calculating the pressure drop and the production of a horizontal multi-branch coalbed methane well. We have analyzed the effect of the number of side branches, the length and angle of intersection of the side branches with the main branch on the well productivity. The results show that with an increase in branch spacing, the productivity first decreases and then increases; with an increase in the angle of intersection and the length of the side branches, the productivity increases.

    ABSTRACT: Features of mathematical modeling of the process of recovery of high-viscosity crude oils and natural bitumens with use of in-situ combustion is examined based on a review of recent foreign publications. Hydrodynamic modeling is increasingly widely used. The importance of physical simulation on a “combustion-tube” apparatus, the results of which are irreplaceable in scaling-up the model to field dimensions, is demonstrated.

    ABSTRACT: The feasibility of applying thermal analysis to study of oil-containing rocks and organic matter is reviewed. Using heavy crudes from the Ashal’cha and Mordovo-Karmal fields, the potential for analysis of the effectiveness of iron-containing precursors of aquathermolysis catalysts is demonstrated with use of data derived from thermal analysis. The thermal effects detected in the presence of the catalyst precursor, as compared with the original sample, reflect decomposition of the catalyst precursor and degradation processes for the components of the crude oil activated by the catalyst. It is shown that use of thermal analysis is feasible for preliminary selection or optimization of catalyst compositions for in-situ upgrading of crude oils, taking into account the activity of the catalyst relative to certain components of the crude in a specific temperature range.

    ABSTRACT: We have studied the effect of catalytic aquathermolysis on the high-molecular-weight components of crude oil in the Ashal’cha field (Republic of Tatarstan). We used an iron(III) tris(acetylacetonate) complex as the catalyst. The change in the structure and composition of the resins and asphaltenes in aquathermolysis was studied by PMR and IR spectroscopy.

    ABSTRACT: This paper describes using the familiar MT-2 platform to build an instrument capable of supporting dynamic observations and recording of the kinetics of physicochemical processes during cryoscopic osmometry of crude oil media and refined petroleum products in automatic mode. Modifications of the MT-2 design generally include introduction of a laser source, a videographic speckle recording system, a digitizing board for the speckle recording signal, a stepper motor control module and redesigned micromechanics controllable by it, which via signals supplied by the computer (the nature of which is controlled by specially written software) alters the movement of the analytical head. As a result of the modification, the MT-2 with digital speckle recording, laser module, and microcamera allows us: to determine the transition to irreversible aggregation of the asphaltenes, characterized by their deposition on the walls of the measuring bath (after desorption of the resins); to do realtime classification of crude oil by speckle morphometry methods; to observe and identify the emulsion properties of the crude oil, including formation of “carpenter’s level” bubble inclusions and coacervate droplets; to carry out a rheological falling-drop experiment with thermographic monitoring; to make rheogoniometric observations while rotating the measuring instrument or thin cuvet; to observe wavy perturbations on the surface of the medium while the drop is falling, with delayed relaxation (dissipation) due to viscoelastic properties.

    ABSTRACT: In order to predict the effectiveness of pour-point depressant additives, we have used data on the redox activity of the pour-point depressants and the crude oil, untreated and treated with the additives. The value of the kinetic criterion K for antioxidant activity depends on the type of additive and its concentration. The highest value of the calculated antioxidant activity index IAO corresponds to the pour-point depressant additive best reducing the viscosity and pour point of waxy crude oil. Using a pour-point depressant with a negative value of IAO leads to poorer rheological characteristics of the crude oil, and an additive with slight pour-point depressant effectiveness has a low IAO.
