The mechanical characteristics of crude oil has several importance, especially during the period of extraction and separation of crude oil. It gives an insight to the behaviour bnof the crude oil inside the pipeline and the potential problems that may happen. In addition to that, the presence of rag layer, or emulsion pad, which is due to the mixture between the crude oil and water can be very disruptive in the separation process. Thus, it is imperative to know the similarities and differences between the crude oils and its rag layers so as to minimize the disruption in the process. To resolve the rag layer problem, it is important to understand the properties and characteristics of the rag layer including the role of solid particles to the emulsion layer stability. Many studies have been conducted on the effects of asphaltenes and resins but none on the effects of micro and macro crystalline wax.
