Key words: hydraulic fracturing; acid hydraulic fracturing; pilot works.

The experience in carrying out hydrofracturing in the fields of the Perm Krai is summarized. Its effectiveness dependences on the geological and physical characteristics of the reservoirs and process parameters of the performed operations are revealed. The basic directions to increase the efficiency of standard hydrofracturing and to improve technology on the basis of the results of experimental-industrial works are determined.
