Advanced Congealing for Heavy Oil Pipelines

Crude oil often contains dissolved waxes (hydrocarbons). When conditions are right, the crude oil temperature can cool to the point that the wax in the oil solidifies (congeals). These wax solids can build up in the pipeline, hindering oil flow through the pipeline.

S&C’s advanced congealing algorithm detects and precisely locates congealing in your pipelines. Locations where congealing is occurring are visually highlighted in the Runtime Simulator and in Web Analytics. Operators are also notified about congealing events and their location.

This solution was validated in the field on a 123 km (76.2 mi) heavy oil pipeline.
