Crude Oil / Petroleum

Crude oil needs to conform to a detailed set of rheological characteristics and standards for commercial reasons, for extraction and to ensure that it flows effectively in pipelines.

Example:

  • Rheonova has carried out rheological studies of paraffin and the impact of additives on pipeline-flow in order to optimize industrial processes. This included the design, development and set-up, on-site, in Africa, of an on-fieldrheometer for paraffin crude oil.
