Analysis of the main causes of technological oil losses and features of the innovation management process in the oil and gas industry

Cite item


The article considers the main reasons for the occurrence of technological losses of oil, as well as the state of innovation activity in the oil and gas complex of Russia and abroad. The main idea of modern trends in the oil industry, today, has become energy saving. The preparation and processing of associated petroleum gas is directly related to high energy intensity indicators, since these processes are carried out by creating and maintaining a continuous technology. The interest of manufacturers in reducing the costs (resource and financial) for production without compromising the quality of products leads to innovative growth. The goal is to reduce electricity consumption, so one of the main ideas of the developments is to create new technologies that are aimed at rational use of energy. The largest energy costs are spent on: gas compression, its movement around the production facility, creating positive and negative temperature values in a wide range, as well as maintaining the operation of the equipment at the created temperature regime. In the period of economic globalization, the task of effective development of oil and gas complex is more urgent than ever. An important role in the modern economy is played by the innovative activity of oil and gas processing enterprises, which contributes to improving the quality of services and goods. Lack of resources, depreciation of technical funds, old wells, as well as the slow development of new oil and gas fields leads to a slow development of industry, which necessitates the introduction and active use of innovative technologies. The article also presents methods for evaluating the commercial efficiency of investments, highlights the main principles for evaluating the effectiveness of an investment project in the oil and gas industry.
