Features

    • Offers case studies from areas such as Gulf of Mexico, Athabasca region in Canada, and Middle East
    • Provides experimental and modeling methods to measure and forecast the occurrence and the magnitude of asphaltene deposition and the different methods used for its prevention and remediation.
    • Covers current strategies for mitigation of asphaltene deposition, using chemical inhibition and the corresponding challenges.

Summary

As global consumption of fossil fuels such as oil increases, previously abundant sources have become depleted or plagued with obstructions. Asphaltene deposition is one of such obstructions which can significantly decrease the rate of oil production. This book offers concise yet thorough coverage of the complex problem of asphaltene precipitation and deposition in oil production. It covers fundamentals of chemistry, stabilization theories and mechanistic approaches of asphaltene behavior at high temperature and pressure. Asphaltene Deposition: Fundamentals, Prediction, Prevention, and Remediation explains techniques for experimental determination of asphaltene precipitation and deposition and different modeling tools available to forecast the occurrence and magnitude of asphaltene deposition in a given oil field. It discusses strategies for mitigation of asphaltene deposition using chemical inhibition and corresponding challenges, best practices for asphaltene remediation, current research, and case studies.
