Main scientific achievements On the basis of physical and mathematical modeling of heterogeneous systems filtration in layered porous media new technologies on enhanced oil recovery, bottomhole zone treatment, water influx restriction  in the development of oil fields was developed and successfully introduced; it was first observed and theoretically substantiated S-shaped filtration law, which takes place during the filtration of non-Newtonian systems in layered porous media; stationary and non-stationary flow of Newtonian and non-Newtonian gassed liquids  in subcritical areas was comprehensively studied and it was shown that the flow rate increases dramatically (2-3 times); a new effect was discovered which occurs when flow  non-Newtonian gassed liquids, consisting in a complete modification of the rheological curves, so initially dilatant fluids under certain conditions exhibits pseudoplastic properties, and vice versa; mechanism, the physical nature of the results is presented and a theory is developed based on the slip effect; a method for stages wise structuring is developed based on statistical modeling of oil field development, the calculation of recoverable reserves and peak production; new methods for analysis of oil field development were developed and implemented using fractal and multifractal dimensions; methods for selecting candidate wells for the implementation of various simulation methods  were developed; as a result of modeling of technological processes in oil-producing wells, a new type of downhole equipment - submersible pumps, workover equipment, sand screens, etc., was developed and successfully implemented; a variety of chemicals for oil and gas industry was developed and successfully implemented (demulsifiers, depressants, surfactants, gels, foams, etc.).
