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.
