Key words: heavy oil emulsion, ultrasonic treatment, mathematical modeling, experimental studies, ultrasonic treatment parameters.

Heavy oil emulsions demonstrate high stability characteristics. Ultrasonic treatment is a promising technology used to breakdown stable emulsions. Theoretical and experimental studies have been conducted to determine optimal parameters of ultrasonic treatment for dehydration of heavy oil. According to the results, ultrasonic treatment substantially improves the performance of heavy oil dehydration process.
