Asphaltene precipitation and deposition can occur at different stages during petroleum production, causing reservoir formation damage and plugging of pipeline and production equipment. Predicting asphaltene flow assurance issues requires the ability to model the phase behavior of asphaltenes as a function of the temperature, pressure, and composition. In this paper, we briefly review some recent approaches to model asphaltene phase behavior. We also present a method to characterize crude oil… CONTINUE READING
