Oilfield waxes and emulsions are petroleum byproducts that increase the costs of production, transportation, and refining by causing equipment failures, plugged pipelines, and decreased throughput. Oil companies spend considerable money in the treatment of oilfield emulsions and wax problems—as oilfields mature and production depths increase, control of emulsions and waxes increase becomes more and more important. This book is the first of its kind in explaining the physical chemical problems associated with waxes and emulsions and the new technologies for treatment of these problems. It is written at an introductory level for readers with no advance chemical training.

Features and Benefits

  • Understand the specific problems of emulsion and wax chemistries associated with the production, transportation, and refining of crude oils
  • Learn about new solutions and technologies for addressing waxes, emulsion, and asphaltenes in crude oil

Audience

  • Engineers
  • Students

About the Author

J.R. Becker is owner of Innovative Technology Systems, a chemical testing consultant for chemical companies involved in oilfield technology. With more than 25 years of experience in research and development of chemical treatments for crude oil, Becker currently holds six patents on crude oil treatment processes and has authored three papers on these processes for the Society of Petroleum Engineers.
