The article presents the results of the analysis of crude oils confined to various deposits of the Varandey field. Some regularities of the changes in physical properties and chemical composition of raw hydrocarbon depending on the mode of occurrence are shown. The data obtained was used for an integrated assessment of a possible negative impact of oil on the environment in case of emergencies. The performed zoning of the field’s territory allows us to detect processing train sections requiring extra measures to reduce the risk of oil spills.


oil properties, technique of expert assessment of potential pollution, zoning, impact of crude oil on the environment.
