Abstract

One of the major concerns during the production of crude oil especially in the waters of Malaysia and the South China Sea is the deposition of wax on to the walls of the pipeline. This is due to the low seabed temperatures which can be below the wax appearance temperature (WAT) which leads to the wax depositing out of the waxy crude oil through the molecular diffusion. Currently, there are many methods to prevent and remedy wax deposition but most of these solutions pose a serious environmental threat, utilizing toxic and non-organic compounds which are expensive to produce. Take instance, the use of current polymeric chemical inhibitors such as ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) and triethanolamine (TEA) even though effective, is not biodegradable and expensive.
