    ABSTRACT: Superacidic catalyst systems based on sulfated zirconia, mixed heteropoly acids, and nano-sized nickel powder applied on acid-activated montmorillonite are proposed. The mechanisms of the propane-propylene fraction oligomerization process on superacidic catalysts are studied in a wide range of temperatures, pressures, and volumetric feedstock feed rates. It is shown that catalysts with a degree of montmorillonite modification with 2.5% nano-sized nickel, which exhibit the best activity and propylene trimer selectivity, are the most promising from the viewpoint of introduction of the oligomerization process at oil-processing/refining enterprises.

    ABSTRACT: The possibility of analyzing multidimensional data for predicting properties of petroleum road asphalts is examined. Construction of a prognostic model helped determine the optimal feedstock composition and technological parameters of the oxidation process for getting improved asphalts. The positive and negative correlating variables, viz., feedstock properties, oxidation process parameters, and properties of oxidized asphalts, are determined from the data set. The analysis results were used to develop a technology for producing improved asphalts under conditions of asphalt production by OAO Syzranskii NPZ (OJSC Syzran Refinery).

    ABSTRACT: A study is made of the effect of the initial degree of supercooling on the equilibrium conditions of decomposition of hydrates of a model gas mixture comprised of 95.66 mol % CH4 + 4.34 mol. % C3H8. To ensure a high degree of conversion of water to hydrate, 0.1 wt. % sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) solution was used as the liquid phase in experiments performed in an RCS6 Sapphire Rocking Cell instrument. The hydrates were produced by cooling under isochoric conditions in a GHA350 gas hydrate autoclave and under isochoric-isothermic conditions on the RCS6 instrument. The hydrated samples that were obtained were decomposed by heating under isochoric conditions at the rate of 0.2 K/h. Analysis of the decomposition curves indicates that, depending upon the initial conditions, both mixed methane-propane hydrates of various compositions and methane hydrate are formed when the test gas mixture is hydrated. It is demonstrated that the proportion of the CH4 hydrate which is formed increases with an increase in the initial degree of overcooling during hydrate formation. The curve depicting the equilibrium hydrate decomposition conditions for the gas mixture has a more complex configuration than the simple exponential curve proposed earlier. The data that is obtained points to the existence of a multiplicity of equilibrium conditions for the hydrate decomposition of gas mixtures, with the exact conditions in a specific case depending on the degree of overcooling of the system during hydrate formation.

    ABSTRACT: Based on analysis of acidic heavy resid processing technologies with production of surfactants, we are proposing a new processing method allowing for multifunctional oilfield reagent production, which consists in removal of free sulfuric acid from the acidic heavy resid by mixing with water in a 1:6 ratio and further neutralization of the obtained solution with ammonia to pH 8–9. To determine the functional properties of the surfactant produced, we used a liquid solution and a crystalline powder obtained by evaporation. The reagent is distinguished by high detergent (up to 97%) and demulsifying (85%) capacity. The results of mathematical modeling of the oil displacement process using the Buckley-Leverett function (equation) showed that the oil extraction coefficient rises to 0.66 (oil viscosity 50 mPa·sec) when solution of the reagent is injected into the reservoir. Laboratory bench tests showed rise of oil extraction coefficient to 0.73 (oil viscosity 30 mPa·sec). Thus, the reagent can be used as demulsifier, oil displacement agent, and technical detergent.

    ABSTRACT: This review considers effective modern methods for oil sludge and acid resid treatment. We analyze in detail the technologies for dewatering, solidification, solvent extraction, thermal treatment (including in the presence of catalysts), and modern oil sludge and solid fuel (oil shales, coals) treatment methods. We note that the dominant criteria for the effectiveness of oil waste utilization technology should be cost effectiveness and reduced environmental stress.

    ABSTRACT: This work is devoted to modification of road asphalt with ethylene—vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymer. The mechanisms of change in physicochemical properties of modified asphalts and characteristics of asphalt concrete pavements based on the copolymer-modified asphalt and its content in the binder are deciphered. Modification of the organic binder with EVA copolymer improves the low-temperature and adhesion properties of the asphalt, reduces penetrability and extensibility, and raises softening temperature. Increase in content of vinyl acetate groups in the EVA copolymer from 12.5 to 28% leads to enhancement of deformation resistance and adhesion properties of the copolymer, which is reflected also in the properties of the polymer-asphalt composites. There is a marked change in the asphalt penetration: the higher the EVA concentration and the content of vinyl acetate groups in it, the lower the penetration.

    ABSTRACT: The influence of stratum properties on wellbore stability was studied by numerical simulation. The results showed that the safe mud density window (SMDW) for both permeable and impermeable strata becomes narrower with increase in the ground stress non-uniformity coefficient. The probability of wellbore wall instability increases where the strata are permeable. If the ground stress non-uniformity coefficient is constant in this case, then there is a linear increase in the pressure at which stability loss and wellbore-wall collapse occur and a linear increase in stratum fracture pressure (SFP). Here, fracture pressure increases more rapidly than collapse pressure. The SMDW narrows with rise in pore pressure and widens with an increase in stratum tensile strength and the cohesive force between molecules. The SMDW is wider for permeable strata than for impermeable strata in this case. The width of the SMDW also increases with an increase in the internal friction angle, but it becomes narrower with an increase in the effective stress. The SMDW is not affected by increases in the Poisson’s ratio or porosity if there is no permeation but becomes smaller if there is permeation. In the absence of a supporting force, wellbore stability decreases drastically and the formation near the wellbore also becomes unstable.

    ABSTRACT: Shale gas can occur in both the adsorbed state and the free state inside pores ranging in size from 10-6 to 10-9. This paper reports the results of research on the mechanisms and characteristics of gas transport in shale gas reservoirs, which deviates from Darcy’s law. The gas migration process is divided into migration in organic and inorganic matrix pores based on Knudsen number. The new models that are proposed for various flow modes take account of the effect of adsorption-desorption, slippage, Knudsen diffusion, and water saturation. The new flow models were modified with due regard for adsorption-layer thickness and water-film thickness on the pore walls. The new model constructed for diffusion flow can be used in designing and developing shale gas reservoirs.

    ABSTRACT: There has been much research worldwide on viscosifiers for water-based drilling fluid but research on viscosifiers for oil-based drilling fluid is still in the exploratory stage so that an effective viscosifier for oil-based drilling fluid is lacking. An environmentally friendly viscosifier, KLD-1, for oil-based drilling fluid was developed by reverse emulsion polymerization based on the reaction of non-ionic, anionic, and water-soluble monomers in oil solution. KLD-1 viscosifier was effective at increasing the viscosity and shear stress, resisting temperature, and reducing the biological toxicity and preparation cost (by ~12%). It was used successfully in the Fuxin 2 coal field gas well.

    ABSTRACT: The mechanism of formation of resinous compounds during use of industrial and motor oils was studied by IR and NMR spectroscopy. Based on a comparative analysis of the spectra of samples of the used oil and the resins separated from it and the spectrum of fresh oil it was concluded that, besides oxidative mechanism, resinous compounds are formed in the oils as a result of oligomerization of the hydrocarbons. The molecules of the latter suffer, in the thermomechanical deformation process, profound stereostructural change at the level of distortion of the torsion angles and bond lengths. This leads to increase of the potential energy, corresponding dissociation of the R–C⋯H bonds in the hydrocarbons, and increase of their acidity, which stimulates oligomerization at these protonated bonds, i.e., initiates the oligomerization process and formation of aromatic hydrocarbons, or aging of the oil. The distortion of the stereostructure of the hydrocarbons in the oil during use remains in the mechanochemical memory of the molecules. This is why the purified used oil, even without oxidation of the hydrocarbons, becomes dark during storage because of the chromophoric –C–H acids that are formed. The latter are neutralized in the presence of alkaline reagents.

    ABSTRACT: Associated gas from oil wells is the most common raw natural gas in Middle East countries and comprises about 70% of Iraq’s natural gas resources. Associated gas is usually loaded with considerable amounts of C2+ hydrocarbons. Liquids from these hydrocarbons, commonly referred to as NGLs, include ethane, propane, butanes, and natural gasoline. They can be used as fuel or as feedstock in refineries and petrochemical plants, while the heavier portion can be used as gasoline-blending stock. They must be removed and recovered from the raw natural gas stream in order to produce pipeline-quality dry natural gas and to meet safe delivery and combustion specifications. This being the case, this study was aimed at simulating and maximizing NGL recovery by applying the latest V.8 Aspen HYSYS simulator and examining the demethanizer feed pressure.

    ABSTRACT: We have studied the colloidal properties of stable highly disperse emulsions: fresh and waste lubricant/liquid coolant (LLC) and water-emulsified waste waters. The fresh LLC is monodisperse and the particle size of the disperse phase is equal to 0.086 μm. The particle size for the disperse phase of the waste LLC is 0.05-0.15 μm. We have identified the trends in the variation in colloidal properties of the waste LLC during treatment in different stages: coalescence treatment, sorption of petroleum products by a composite sorbent, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, final purification on an ion-exchange membrane. After the membrane treatment methods, the average particle size increases and the absolute value of the zeta potential decreases due to breaking of the emulsion; the particles instantaneously become larger due to loss of charge while passing through the pores of the membranes.

    ABSTRACT: The influence of duration of mechanical activation of amorphous carbon produced by plant material pyrolysis on the morphology of moldable multilayer carbon nanotubes is studied. The maximum nanotube yield is observed when amorphous carbon is mechanically activated for 36 hours. The nanotube yield depends a great deal on the type of plant materials submitted to pyrolysis. It is demonstrated that prolonged mechanical activation of carbon composite in a vario-planetary mill leads to formation of aggregates consisting of multilayer nanotubes and amorphous carbon and to loss of thermal stability of nanotubes. This fact is responsible for the decrease in carbon nanotube content in products of vacuum annealing carried out for nanotube purification.

    ABSTRACT: Samples of cryogels produced from aqueous solutions of polyvinyl alcohol and containing spent mineral oils in the polymer matrix were obtained. The influence of the content and composition of the mineral oils on the rheological and physicochemical properties of the cryogels was studied. A method for producing fuel briquettes from the cryogels filled with coke particles and impregnated with spent mineral oil was developed. The mechanical and thermophysical properties of the filled briquettes were studied. The heat of combustion of dry briquettes was practically the same as that of pure coke. The briquettes were as strong as pine and spruce wood. The proposed method could be used to utilize spent oils for fuel briquette production.

    ABSTRACT: The choice of fluid-circulation conditions is of great importance in microhole drilling (MHD) conducted with coiled tubing (CT) as the drill string because of the long length and small bending radius of the tubing coiled on the reel, which result in high circulation friction pressure loss (CFPL). A model for calculating CFPL in flexible CT has been constructed by combining a power-law fluid flow equation and the Dean Number. The calculations have revealed patterns of change in the CFPL during MHD. The CFPL in CT, whether reeled or in downhole, increases steeply with an increase of drilling fluid flow rate, decreases slowly with increasing CT inner diameter, and rises linearly with an increase in CT length. The total CFPL over the entire CT decreases slowly with decreasing CT length when the CT is run downhole from the reel. Deep MHD is suitable only for low drilling-fluid flow rates when the inner diameter of CT is large. Suitable ranges of drilling-fluid flow rate and CT inner diameter have been determined for various drilling depths. The research will provide a basis for selecting CT and drilling-fluid circulation parameters for MHD.
