Investigating the Influence of Pressure and Temperature on Malaysian Crude Oil Density and Viscosity for Improved Recovery
Keywords:Variations in density, enhanced oil recovery, variations in viscosity
Malaysia has great potential as a crude oil or fossil fuel producing country. To increase oil production, behavior of Malaysian Crude Oil has been analyzed with reference to temperature and pressure variations. The effect of these parameters on crude oil density and viscosity has been observed, to select the methodology to be adopted for increases recovery by implementing enhanced oil recovery (EOR) project. Based on this study it has been decided to further explore the feasibility of increasing reservoir pressure.
