SPE Online Education
After several decades, the understanding of asphaltene precipitation and deposition still remains a problem for the oil industry due to the lack of reliable laboratory tests able to represent the field conditions. This makes the mitigation of asphaltene issues a greater challenge. This talk will present different techniques developed to understand the asphaltene behavior and their associated assumptions, limitations and uncertainties. Additional R&D efforts are required to improve the current state of art of asphaltene knowledge.
