The reduction of oil viscosity.
The reduction of oil viscosity, especially high viscosity oil, allows to solve the task of transporting it by pipeline. The decrease in viscosity of the pumped oil reduces the hydraulic resistance of pipeline networks, which ultimately reduces energy consumption for pumping.
Created integrated technology and plant reduce the viscosity of high-viscosity oil based on the wave impact (ultrasonic, magnetic, and electromagnetic) with the addition of nanoparticles. The technology allows to reduce the viscosity of oil by more than 30% with a relaxation time longer than 7 days.
