  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

Asphaltene Deposition Modeling during Natural Depletion and Developing a New Method for Multiphase Flash Calculation

Volume 5, Issue 2 , April 2016, , Pages 45-65

  The specific objective of this paper is to develop a fully implicit compositional simulator for modeling asphaltene deposition during natural depletion. In this study, a mathematical model for asphaltene deposition modeling is presented followed by the solution approach using the fully implicit scheme. ...  Read More
