Overview

Based on a Short Course sponsored by Canada's Petroleum Recovery Institute. The first book to focus on the occurrence of emulsions in the petroleum industry. Brings together contributions from a wide range of experts. Provides an up-to-date examination of the nature, occurrence, handling, formation, and breaking of petroleum emulsions. Topics covered include emulsion stability; characterization techniques; rheology of emulsions, and flow properties of emulsions in pipes and porous media, well-head productions, and industrial process streams. Using the fundamental concepts, and based on commercial and pilot-scale experiences, Also shows how to approach making desirable emulsions, transporting and handling them, and how to approach breaking undesirable emulsions.
