This module provides an overview of paraffin wax, the reasons for wax precipitation, temperature definitions, measurement techniques, pressure dependence, and common issues associated with wax in the oil and gas industry.
- Define paraffin wax and the issues associated with wax
- Understand the reasons for wax precipitation
- Learn the Key modelling parameters – the Wax Appearance Temperature (WAT), Wax Disappearance Temperature (WDT), etc.
- Describe WAT determination – its limitations and pressure dependence
The delegates will understand the structure of paraffin wax and issues associated with wax deposition in the oil and gas industry.
