  Asphaltene-induced formation damage is one of the complicated processes of permeability damage in porous media, particularly in the near-wellbore area. Asphaltene particles precipitate out of the bulk fluid phase during production as a consequence of pressure drop, which may reduce permeability owing ...  Read More
