Guest Editors

Prof. Sergey Galkin, Perm National Research Polytechnic University, Russia.

Professor Sergey Galkin has been working at Perm National Research Polytechnic University as a professor of the Department of Oil and Gas Technologies since 2008, and has been working as a dean of the Faculty of Mining and Petroleum since 2010.
The academic degree of Doctor of Geological and Mineralogical Sciences was obtained in 2007. In the period from 1999-2010, he worked in the research and production divisions of the oil company «LUKOIL». He headed the center for geological and hydrodynamic modeling of oil fields.
In the period from 2017-21, he was the head of scientific research of 6 projects in the interests of oil and gas sector enterprises and state programs of Russia. Since 2019, together with Professor Baljun Bai (Missouri University of Science and Technology), he has been the head of the international scientific project "Development of technology for reducing water inflow in oil wells using limited-swelling polymers". Since 2020, he has been the head of the state program for the project "Physical and mathematical modeling of propane hydraulic fracturing in rocks".

    Experimental and Numerical Assessment of the Influence of Bottomhole Pressure Drawdown on Terrigenous Reservoir Permeability and Well Productivity

    Sergey Popov, Sergey Chernyshov, Evgeniy Gladkikh
    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.3, pp. 619-634, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2022.021936

    Abstract During oil and gas fields development, a decrease in reservoir and bottomhole pressure has often a detrimental effect on reservoir properties, especially permeability. This study presents the results of laboratory tests conducted to determine the response of terrigenous reservoir core-sample permeability to changes in the effective stresses and a decrease in the reservoir pressure. The considered samples were exposed for a long time to a constant high effective stress for a more reliable assessment of the viscoplastic deformations. According to these experiments, the decrease of the core samples permeability may reach 21% with a decrease in pressure by 9.5 MPa… More >

    An Integrated Oil Production Enhancement Technology Based on Waterflooding Energy Recovery

    Aleksandr Lekomtsev, Vitaliy Bakaneev, Ivan Stepanenko, Petr Maximov, Yulia Rozhkova, Alexey Dengaev, Wanli Kang
    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.2, pp. 285-301, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2022.019809

    Abstract A new integrated oil production enhancement technology based on water-flooding energy recovery is proposed. After providing an extensive review of the existing scientific and technical literature on this subject, the proposed integrated technology is described together with the related process flow diagram, the criteria used to select a target facility for its implementation and the outcomes of the laboratory studies conducted to analyze emulsion formation and separation kinetics. Moreover, the outcomes of numerical simulations performed using Ansys CFX software are also presented. According to these results, using the proposed approach the incremental oil production may reach 1.2 t/day (with a 13%… More >

    Application of Epoxy Coatings to Increase the Efficiency of Wax Oils Production

    Ilushin Pavel, Vyatkin Kirill, Anton Kozlov
    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.18, No.5, pp. 1229-1241, 2022, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2022.020424

    Abstract When producing hydrocarbons, an important task relates to the optimization of the stock of the producing well. The main complications for wells in non-working mode are represented by the formation of asphalt-resin-paraffin deposits. This issue is one of the most common problems in the production and transportation of oil. A promising method to deal with these deposits is the application of smooth coatings made of epoxy polymers on the inner surface of the production well tubing. In this work, a number of laboratory studies were carried out on the “Cold Finger” installation to assess the effectiveness of this approach. These… More >
