Abstract: this article describes the characteristics and conditions for the use of an anti-turbulence additive in oil production, which creates an environment for increasing the pipeline capacity at a fixed pumping capacity, both from a technical and economic point of view. The possible economic effect of reducing energy consumption during oil pumping was considered. As a result of the analysis, it was found that the use of additives makes it possible not only to reduce energy costs, but also to improve the reliability of operation, to provide repair work without reducing the planned pumping volumes, to form the necessary throughput during the conservation and complete shutdown of pumping stations. In modern economic conditions, oil production and transportation is a rather controversial type of business. On the one hand, the extraction of energy resources is considered a highly profitable area of application of entrepreneurial efforts. However, there is a very difficult competition in this area with countries where oil production is less difficult due to climate, geo-landscape and other reasons. In this regard, there is a need to apply the most cost-effective methods of transporting oil to the final buyer.
