Abstract

Wax can precipitate as a solid phase on the pipe wall during hydrocarbon production when its temperature (inlet coolant temperature) drops below the Wax Appearance Temperature (WAT) causing an artificial blockage leading to a reduction or interruption in the production. An experimental flow loop system was built in the lab to study the variation of wax deposition thickness under the single phase transport. The Bohlin Gemini II Rheometer has been used to analysis the effect of the inhibitor W802 (polyacrylate polymer (C16-C22)), at different concentration (250, 500, 750, 1000 and 2000 ppm), on the crude oil
