Title: WAX TREATMENT IN CRUDE OIL
Authors: VICTOR, CHIMEZIE NWEBO
Issue Date: Oct-2006
Abstract: The Rheological properties (viscosity and PH) analysis was conducted on crude samples treated with xylene, n- hexane and Trimethylamine and a blend of Trimethylamine -I-Hexane and Trimethylamine + Xylene at different % coJ1centration. At the end of the analysis, the result show a progressive decrease in Viscosity at an . increased concentration of n-hexane from 0.25% to 0.75% concentration and continues reduction of viscosity when concentration of trimethJariine is increased and an increase in the PH value of the sample. The acidity of any crucle sample gives affinity for wax -to deposition in crude oil. The results obtained from this research has shown that, n-Hexane arid trimethylamine can be used as flow improver in the transportation of crude oil through pipeline with 0.75% concentration of n-hexane as the" , preferred due to its ability to reduce the viscosity of the sample at low concentration.
