Volume 10, Issue 3 , Summer 2021

http://dx.doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2021.275683.1585

Abstract
  In this study, effect of ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) as an inhibitor on wax appearance temperature (WAT) of crude oil in the Iranian oil field has been investigated using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) method. The effect of EVA on the morphology of crude oil wax crystals has been investigated ...  Read More

Siavash Ashoori; Ehsan Safavi; Jamshid Moghaddasi; Parvin Kolahkaj

Volume 10, Issue 3 , Summer 2021

http://dx.doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2021.273802.1584

Abstract
  AbstractFormation damage is being reported during the secondary and tertiary stages of reservoir lifespan. One of the unpleasant sequences of formation damage caused by fine particles is permeability reduction due to pore plugging and bridging. The fine particles might exist initially in a porous medium, ...  Read More

3. Geochemical Investigation of Trace Metals in Crude Oils from Some Producing Oil Fields in Niger Delta, Nigeria

Temple N Chikwe; Mudiaga Onojake

Volume 10, Issue 3 , Summer 2021

http://dx.doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2021.262613.1580

Abstract
  The concentrations of trace metals in crude oil samples obtained from eight producing fields from Niger Delta Nigeria were analyzed using a 700 model Perkin Elmer Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer. Results showed the following ranges for the trace metals, Cu (0.01- 0.04 mg/kg); Fe (0.05 – 5.90 ...  Read More

4. Evaluation of a novel mechanistic approach to predict transport of water and ions through shale

Nima Hamidian Shoormasti; Seyyedalireza Tabatabaei-Nezhad

Volume 10, Issue 3 , Summer 2021

http://dx.doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2021.226919.1546

Abstract
  Prediction of transport parameters is an important issue in shale formations. A unique and novel method to address this subject is the Revil model (Revil et al. 2011) which has been updated here for multivalent salts. The updated model for water and ion transport through shale has been evaluated against ...  Read More

5. Relation between asphaltene adsorption on the nanoparticles surface and asphaltene precipitation inhibition during real crude oil natural depletion tests

Yaser Ahmadi

Volume 10, Issue 3 , Summer 2021

http://dx.doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2021.291675.1600

Abstract
  Using nanoparticles for adsorbing asphaltene was known as one of efficient methods among researchers for upgrading of real oil samples in comparison to other expensive mechanical treatments or even solvents (such as n-pentane and n-heptane) and surfactants. In this study, Nickel zeolite oxide nanoparticles ...  Read More
