5. The abstract contains at least 200–250 words. Articles with shorter annotations are returned to the authors for revision.
Abstract translates into English, so the text should be clear, understandable, academic. It is not allowed to use too long sentences, parenthetical words, abbreviations (except for the names of organizations). The annotation should reflect: relevance, goals and scientific novelty of the research; brief description of research methods; most important results.

Keywords: from 5 to 10 words; separated by a comma; nominative, singular (except for terms used only in the plural).
It is not allowed to use the names of companies or institutions and product brands as keywords.
7. The text of the article must be divided into sections. Articles without sections are returned to the authors for revision.
For example: Introduction, Research Methods, Experimental Data, Discussion, Conclusions.
Section titles may vary depending on the subject of the article.
In the Gas Industry journal, all physical quantities are given in the International System of Units. Before submitting the article, please make sure that the International System of Units is used for all quantities not only in the text, but also in the tables, graphs, and figures.
The use of abbreviations. Abbreviations are first introduced in the text (not in the abstract) after the first detailed mention of the phrase, in brackets after it. Further, the abbreviation introduced above is used throughout the text, including tables and figures.
Tables are typed in Word, numbered in order and arranged in the text as mentioned. References to tables in the text should be made in the format: Table. 1, table. 2, etc.
Each table contains:
– name in the format: Table 1. Structure of pipeline gas supply, billion m3;
– headings of columns and rows with indication of units of measurement (if the numerical values of these parameters are listed below).
The table cannot contain empty cells. If there is no value, then a dash is put.
Note to the table (if necessary) is issued under the table.
Variables and abbreviations mentioned in the table should be decrypted in the text of the article.
Please don't make very wide tables with landscape orientation and fine print.
Figures are numbered in order and arranged in the text as mentioned. References to figures in the text should be made in the format: Fig. 1, Fig. 2, etc.
Each Figure contains:
– figure caption in the format: Fig. 1. Dependence of gas flow rate on wellhead pressure: a) well 1; b) well 2;
– legend to the Figure (if necessary);
– scale ruler (for maps, drawings, macro- and micro-objects, which size is not obvious from the photo).
Diagrams are submited in Excel format. X and Y axes should be signed with indication of the parameter's name, units of measure, scale divisions and numbers to them.
Photos and drawings that are not diagrams or graphs are provided in .jpg format, file size is from 1Mb. In the case of the submission of pictures in the formats .ai, .tif, .eps, you must send a small copies of them in .jpg for quick viewing.
If the Figure has been previously published by the authors or taken from another source, the title of the Figure must contain a reference to the source in the form of numbers in square brackets, and the data on the source are placed in the general list of references.
Formulas are made in Word Formula Editor.
Formulas are numbered in order in the format: (1), (2), etc.
The following elements are typed in Roman font:
– variables, denoted by Russian and Greek letters;
– the upper and lower indices of variables, denoted by Cyrillic and Greek letters, numbers;
– numbers, mathematical signs (+, -, etc.), mathematical functions (sin, cos, etc.);
– chemical elements.
The following elements are typed in Italic font:
– variables denoted by Latin letters;
– superscripts and subscripts of variables, denoted by Latin letters.
Variables' explication is given immediately after their first mention in the formula, indicating the units of measurement. For example: s = vt, where s – distance, m; v – speed, m/s; t – time, s. If the variable is a dimensionless quantity, then instead of the units of measure it should be written: dimensionless quantity.
To denote one physical quantity, the same variables are used. Especially if the article contains formulas from different sources, then the author's task is to unified the notation for variables.
If the article contains more than 10 variables, please provide a separate list in the form of the table with their explication and the units of measurement (in addition to the above explication in the text).
The authors are solely responsible for the accuracy of the list of references. Editors have the right to remove references that cannot be verified. References are numbered in the text as they are mentioned in square brackets: , , [3–5].
