Abstract

A comparative study of thermal treatment and depressor DU-ASB introduction effects on the low-temperature properties of high-paraffin oil from "Konys" oilfield has been carried out. The optimal thermal treatment temperature and depressor concentration, which provide minimal pour temperature and dynamic viscosity of oil, were determined.
