Chemical treatments for paraffin evaluation and control ///

Deposition of paraffins in upstream production operations can restrict flow, causing production loss, and can lead to corrosion under the deposits. Specifically tailored paraffin solvent treatments have been successfully applied to aid the removal of deposits, and specialty inhibitors have been used to prevent further deposition. This article reviews the current best practices for the identification, evaluation and control of paraffin deposition in oil production systems.
