    Abstract

    The blending of compositionally different crude oils and condensate with crude oil can result in significant problems in transportation, storage, and refining. This is usually manifested by agglomeration or flocculation of waxes and/or asphaltenes. These can accumulate and clog tubular components such as pipelines and heat exchangers or contribute to sludge buildup in tanks, requiring costly and time-consuming cleanup and equipment downtime.
