Effective management of a modern industrial company engaged in oil transportation should be based on scientifically grounded, most accurate assessments of the state of the production system in real time. Increasing the throughput of oil pipelines using anti-turbulent additives is by far the most economical and effective way. However, the use of modern models, dependencies and research results to determine pressure losses in oil pipelines when using anti-turbulent additives at real facilities lead to significant deviations from the actual values. To solve this problem, it is proposed to use simulation based on machine learning models. Analysis of the initial data made it possible to determine the features and target variables for training the models. The most popular models for solving the problem of multivariate regression (search for a function of n-variables) are considered as machine learning models, such as: linear regression, decision trees, random forest, gradient boosting, artificial neural networks and ensembles of models. The model was trained in Python using popular machine learning libraries: sklearn, keras, pytorch, catboost, etc. Using cross-validation, the hyperparameters for each of the considered model were determined, which provide the best quality metrics. When comparing the forecasting results with the actual data not participating in the training process, one of the models showed a satisfactory error in comparison with the rest of the models. The possibility of increasing the forecast accuracy of machine learning models for new data by retraining existing models is also considered. Simulation modeling based on machine learning models can be effectively used as a method for assessing the required amount of anti-turbulent additives to ensure the required hydraulic efficiency of oil pipelines. It is proposed to use artificial neural networks (ANN) as a recommended model for use. This is due to the fact that the type of the objective function is not known in advance, and when training the ANN, the process of finding a function that most correctly describes the target dependence takes place. The use of simulation modeling as a tool for intelligent control makes it possible to successfully evaluate the effect of an anti-turbulent additive on the hydraulic efficiency of oil pipelines, thus significantly reducing the operating costs of pumping and thereby increasing the efficiency of the enterprise.
