Purpose.Justification of magnetic field application in order to prevent formation of asphalt-resin-paraffin deposits (ARPD) in oil and gas equipment, and consider some current views on the state of ARPD problem in oilfield equipment and possible methods for its solution using magnetic treatment. Methods. Analysis and generalization of the research results of production fluid magnetic treatment using COMSOL Multiphysics software. Findings. The technology of magnetic fields application in prevention of asphalt-resin-paraffin deposits is introduced in the article. The obtained results of production fluid magnetic treatment make it possible to use it in oil wells equipped with pumping units, as well as in free flow production method or in wells operated by electric-centrifugal pump, and in oil pipelines. Originality. The use of high energy magnets based on rare earth materials can reduce asphalt-resin-paraffin deposits in oil equipment. Practical implications. The proposed magnetic treatment creates opportunities for field exploitation at the later stages of development which are characterized by a high content of asphaltenes, resins and paraffins. The results of production fluid magnetic treatment have proved the efficiency of this technology, which has doubled a turnaround time.
