This talk provides a detailed description of the thermodynamic and transport theories for wax deposition modeling and a comprehensive review of the laboratory testing to help establish appropriate control strategies for the field.
Wax deposition has become one of the most common flow assurance problems in the petroleum industry. As the petroleum resources shift from onshore reservoirs toward offshore subsea productions, the industry is currently facing unprecedented challenges to maintain flow assurance for petroleum production, in which the strategy to prevent or mitigate wax deposition has become increasingly costly and complicated.
Dr. Zhenyu Huang (Jason) is currently a Senior Flow Assurance Specialist in Assured Flow Solutions LLC., He provides engineering solutions for a variety of flow assurance issues to the petroleum industry. His expertise includes production chemistry and multiphase flows. He is the subject matter expert on wax related issues and he currently serves as the vice president of the Upstream Engineering and Flow Assurance Section of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.
Dr. Huang received his bachelor’s degree in Tsinghua University in Beijing, China in 2006 and he completed...Read more
