Energy saving technological processes is one of the most actual objectives of the entire Russian industry and oil and gas sector in particular. For these purposes creation of jet-powered equipment might be considered as a perspective direction of science and technology development. Jet-powered equipment may be effectively used in a pump mode, compressor mode and multiphase pump mode when pumping gas-liquid mixtures with solid particles in a stream, applied to low and high viscous environments. Simple construction of jet-powered devices allows for significant reduce in cost and increase in reliability. In order to solve direct and inverse hydrodynamical jet-powered devices theory problems the set of computer programs is created. Accumulated practical experience combined with theoretical studies allowed to set up serial production of jet-powered devices. Usage of jet-powered devices for creation of Humphrey cycle heat engines considered as a perspective direction of jet-powered devices studies. Further studies aimed at usage of stationary jet-powered pumping and compressor plants for preliminary compression of air-fuel mixture up to the pressure of 0,5 MPa. Instead of flaring the associated gas, hydrocarbons energy might be effectively converted to work output using Humphrey cycle for oil and gas production and transportation, increased separation efficiency and other objectives.
