Topical Issues In The Study Of Production Of Artificial And Non-Traditional Hydrocarbons


The article addresses topical issues of studying the development of unconventional and artificial hydrocarbons. Based on the statistics of British Petroleum, the data analysis was carried out, which showed the estimated time for the development, production and processing of proven oil reserves. This forecast claims that in the long term there are risks of proven oil reserves, both in the Russian Federation and in the United States. There are reserves of unconventional hydrocarbons in the Russian Federation, however, their development and production are little studied. Renewable energy sources contribute not only to the production of artificial hydrocarbons, but also to the continuation of the life cycle of the petrochemical and oil refining industries. For example, the world's production and consumption of has a growing trend, and the United States has a leading position after Europe. Currently, the Russian Federation does not pay special attention to this area. Therefore, the concentration of petrochemical and oil refining enterprises in one territory can lead to the risk of non-supply of raw materials and a decrease in the vital activities of these enterprises. Such territories of the Russian Federation include the Republic of Bashkortostan. At the same time, the study of the production of artificial hydrocarbons based on biomass will extend the life cycle of petrochemical and oil refining enterprises in the future, and the creation of a biotechnology cluster contributes to the acquisition of an innovative product range.
