The reasons for the formation of asphalt-resin-paraffin deposits in casing and tubing of high-viscosity oil wells are considered. Electrophysical concept of the technology for removal of deposits by highly concentrated induction heating of the pipe without interruptions in oil production is proposed, the necessary set of equipment is described.
