Paper presented at the SPE Production and Operations Symposium, March 24–27, 2001
Paper Number: SPE-67326-MS
... Abstract Crude oil producers have used pour point depressants with great success for several decades. However, chemical wax control packages can be plagued by crude oil specificity, large package treat rates, and waxy components that can be hard to apply. This paper discusses what factors...

... to lower the cloud point of Shannon crude. Two wells were selected for testing, HDU #5296 and HDU #5298. The CF-16, proved to work effectively on the paraffin, and also be cost effective (as will be shown later). In early 1985, more wells were tested and CF-16 was proven effective. Hot oiling...

Paper Number: SPE-18894-MS
... Cost-effective oil production of wells that are known to have a history of downhole organic scale deposition is possible when a program of identification, testing, and chemical application is correctly instituted. Stimulation of production can result if there is available crude and pressure...

..., the downhole temperature of the formation and the hot oil process itself. Each of these areas of possible problems will be reviewed and suggestions will be made to minimize or eliminate them. Laboratory tests will be presented for determining if a crude could cause formation damage when used for hot oiling...

Paper presented at the SPE Production Operations Symposium, March 10–12, 1985
Paper Number: SPE-13796-MS
... ABSTRACT Formation damage caused by the precipitation and deposition of paraffin or asphaitene particles has been a recurrent problem in the production of crude oil. A number of well established oilfield operations have been found to aggravate these organic deposition problems. Laboratory...

... in this country, we only use 22 trillion a year,-so how could we possibly have a shortage of natural gas? If we are supposedly short of crude, why did the state of Texas reduce its daily allowable this fall apparently allowing its wells to produce only 64% of the time. These are all logical questions...
