Conjugate heat transfer problem with cold injection from the ground surface

At present, in order to protect the pipeline from the permafrost effects, the option of above-ground pipeline laying is increasingly used. Though, despite preventive measures, such as the freezing of soils with the help of seasonally acting cooling devices (SACDs), the way of pipelining in the heaving soils has not proved to be a reliable method. It is shown that the rate of freezing with the generation of an ice-soil cylinder around a thermostabilization device can be determined by solving the conjugate heat transfer problem of the "atmosphere – SACD – soil" system by the method of stationary state transition. Because the rate of soil freezing depends on the temperature regime of the SCD, and, consequently, the moisture migration flow entering to the freezing zone also depends, then it seems possible to control the process of the soil heaving generation. This can be achieved by adopting special constructive solutions or by regulating the operation of the SCDs, avoiding the rates of freezing that are close to extreme, at which the generation of a pingo is possible.

Keywords: permafrost; pingos; seasonally acting cooling devices; conjugate heat transfer problem; buckling of above-ground pipeline supports.

Comparative study of the determination of thermodynamic properties of methane based on the Peng-Robinson equation of state and the molecular dynamics simulations

The paper presents a comparative study of the compressibility factor, isobaric heat capacity, and the Joule-Thomson differential coefficient determination for methane using the Peng-Robinson equation of state, its modification with shift parameter, the molecular dynamics method and experimental data. It is shown that the use of the modified Peng-Robinson equation of state with the shift parameter and the molecular dynamics method gives a minimal error in the considered range of the pressures and temperatures in determining the compressibility factor. The isobaric heat capacity and the Joule-Thomson coefficient are best described using the Peng-Robinson equation of state without a shift parameter, while the molecular dynamics simulations shows also good results at low temperatures.

Keywords: methane; equation of state; molecular dynamics; compressibility factor; heat capacity; Joule-Thomson coefficient.

Forecasting of the hydraulic fracturing efficiency as components of its design optimization

The task is predicting the outcome of the impact on productive oil-saturated layer through the technology of hydraulic fracturing. The efficiency of hydraulic fracturing depends on certain characteristics: the properties of the formation, the number and properties of the agents acting on the formation. In the work, 9 such features are identified, and the production is estimated using three indicators-the flow rate after hydraulic fracturing, the multiplicity of the flow rate increase and the Boolean parameter indicating the efficiency. The authors built a mathematical model, calculated diagnostic coefficients and information of the feature. The result is presented in three intervals: the forecast is negative, the forecast is uncertain and the forecast is positive. According to the actual data of hydraulic fracturing operations on these wells, its efficiency on others was determined. The article presents the feasibility of the proposed approach for solving this class of problems.

Keywords: hydraulic fracturing; optimization of hydraulic fracturing; hydraulic fracturing parameters; forecasting of the efficiency; measure Kullback.

Magnetic control of tension at the difficult resistance of metal and decrease in size of residual mechanical tension of drill pipes

Results of tension researches of the field residual metal magnetization from the mechanical tension arising at simultaneous action in the cross section of metal of the bending and twisting moments, characteristic of the operated steel drill pipe and also other elements of metalwork are given at the difficult resistance of metal. It is shown that the tension size of the residual magnetization field of metal measured over a surface of a steel, pipe depends on the size of the normal and tangent mechanical tension arising at the difficult resistance of metal. The received formulas have generalizing character. It is shown that estimates of stress of metal it is possible to enter the threshold value of tension size of the residual magnetization field connected with the size of the allowed mechanical tension of metal. Results of magnetic control of tension of drill pipes are given by the indicator of mechanical tension of IN02 metal of the scanning type that areas with stress of metal are located mainly about the threaded connections made by means of welding. It is shown that results of magnetic control allow not only to reject drill pipes with dangerous stress of metal, but also to use them for a possibility of further maintenance free restoration of a resource due to decrease in residual mechanical tension in local areas of metal. Results of decrease in residual mechanical tension are given in areas with stress of metal of drill pipes the device of electromagnetic metal working.

Keywords: stress state; drill pipe; effective stress; residual stresses; combined strength; mechanical stress indicator.

Evaluation of water-gas impact efficiency at the use of various composition gas

The article discusses the application of one of the technologies for increasing oil recovery, implying water and gas impact and is of interest for use in depleted deposits of lowand medium-viscosity oils. The possibility of using this method depends mainly on the availability of non-commercial volumes of associated gas. The estimation of the gas volumes required by the technology requires hydrodynamic simulation in conditions as close as possible to the real ones. The task is to determine the ratio of injected gas and water, at which the maximum efficiency of oil production is achieved. The problem is considered in the example of the Vyintoig field, hydrodynamic modeling is used to solve the problems. As a result, the proportions of the injection volumes were obtained and compared, and recommendations were given for planning the application of the water-gas impact on one of the reservoirs of this field.

Keywords: water and gas impact; Vyintoigskoye field; hydrodynamic modeling; gravitational segregation; minimization of phase mobility; three-phase filtration.

Evaluation of strain-stress states of initial and improved designs of the modules for oil sludge pyrolysis

Following equipment was developed and patented for implementation of the more effective methods from environmental and technical aspects for the low temperature sludge incineration. This article describes deformation stresses in constructions of burning chamber for the unit which is of box type shell with saddle shaped bottom. Possibility of coke scale formation on the internal surfaces and the bottom of the burning chamber was practically eliminated due to motion of reverse rotors and preliminary heating of additive material. This method increases efficiency of incinerating equipment, simultaneously
permits to reduce temperature for the operation and as a result decreases level of the deformation stresses in burning chamber unit. The initial and upgraded versions of the equipment were described in this document for the situation of abnormal mode on having started technological process and under exposure to excessive pressure in the burning chambers. Analyses of the arising stress conditions in the whole incinerator units and separately for the bottoms of the models are submitted for consideration.

Keywords: oil sludge; additive material; low temperature burning; installation; shell; burning chamber; saddle shaped bottom; deformation stress conditionons.
