Hossein Hejazi; Behrouz Bayati; Mohsen Mansouri

Volume 10, Issue 3 , July 2021, , Pages 1-19

  This study investigated the effect of ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) as an inhibitor on wax appearance temperature (WAT) of crude oil in the Iranian oil field using the differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) method. The effect of EVA on the morphology of crude oil wax crystals was examined by a system ...  Read More

Volume 6, Issue 4 , October 2017, , Pages 18-32

  An efficient design of in situ combustion depends on accurate kinetic modeling of the crude oil oxidation. The kinetic triplet of the oxidation reactions of a heavy oil sample was investigated. Once the kinetic triplet is known, the kinetic equation would be deconvolved. The crude oil sample was obtained ...  Read More
