Asphaltene deposition on pipeline surfaces during crude oil production and transportation is considered to be a key Flow Assurance issue. Asphaltene-metal surface interactions including the simplest process of asphaltene adsorption on metal surfaces remains a poorly understood topic. In this study, preliminary results on the kinetics and thermodynamics of asphaltene adsorption from toluene-heptane and toluene-pentane solutions are presented. The kinetics of asphaltene adsorption on gold surface… CONTINUE READING
