• Chemical Modification of Paraffin Wax-Oil Gels 

      Kurniawan, Muh (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2019:222, Doctoral thesis, 2019)
      Paraffin wax crystallized in petroleum production line is well known in causing flow assurance challenges. Wax crystallization behavior is influenced by its interaction with other components co-exist in petroleum fluids. ...
    • Influence of Microcrystalline Wax on the Properties of Model Wax-Oil Gels 

      Kurniawan, Muh; Subramanian, Sreedhar; Norrman, Jens; Paso, Kristofer Gunnar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      The influence of microcrystalline wax addition upon the rheological properties of model wax-oil gels is investigated. Addition of less than 1 wt % microcrystalline wax to a model oil consisting of 5 wt % macrocrystalline ...
    • Influence of wax inhibitor molecular weight: Fractionation and effect on crystallization of polydisperse waxes 

      Ruwoldt, Jost; Kurniawan, Muh; Sørland, Geir; Simon, Sebastien Charles; Sjøblom, Johan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      The influence of wax inhibitor molecular weight on wax crystallization was investigated in three steps: (1) Wax inhibitor fractionation via stepwise precipitation or ultrasonic disintegration, (2) characterization of ...
    • Non-linear dependency of wax appearance temperature on cooling rate 

      Ruwoldt, Jost; Kurniawan, Muh; Oschmann, Hans-Jörg (Journal article, 2018)
      The Wax Appearance Temperature (WAT) is usually the first parameter to consider, when assessing whether paraffin wax contained in the crude oil can become an issue during production. As such, correct determination of the ...
