Modelling of Wax Deposition during Oil Production Using a Two-Phase Flash Calculation
Wax deposition is a serious problem in the Petroleum Industry that results in the plugging of flow strings, formation damage, loss of hydrocarbons, increased production cost. The existing models used in the oil industry for predicting wax phase equilibrium parameters over-estimate the amount of wax that is formed in terms of the wax weight fraction and the number of moles of solid. The Coutinho...
