    The degree of refining of crude oil can be increased both by increasing the proportion of secondary processes - thermal and catalytic cracking, hydrocracking coking - in the refinery circuit and by rational use (perhaps with additional refining) of gassoils of secondary origin and heavy resids [1].

    Research results are reported on the alternative hydrocracking form of processing for the organic part of bituminous sands in Azerbaidzhan deposits. The proposed method consists of catalytic processing of the á-olefins (oct-1-ene). In this way one can obtain highly viscous basic oils, which...
