Key words: current oil recovery, remaining recoverable reserves, pulse-wave stimulation, interfacial interaction, formation pressure.

On the basis of TatNIPIneft-designed methodological approach, current oil recovery values for natural oil reservoir classes have been obtained. Directions for further research related to increased recovery of unrecovered oil of the Romashkinskoye field are presented. Results of pilot pulse-wave stimulation of layered heterogeneous formations and formations with deteriorated reservoir quality as a result of man-caused impact are discussed.
