Heavy Crude Oil Blending
March 11th @ 12:00pm MST/ 2:00pm EST, Microsoft Teams
Join our webinar as we provide an overview of Heavy Crude Oil Blending, the basic elements of design, as well as common pitfalls and oversights to enable your blending designs to operate effectively and efficiently.
Blending of liquid hydrocarbon feedstocks has become more and more common, whether to improve hydraulic properties for pipeline transmission, or to achieve greater economic advantage with the final blended sales product, or both. But what are the design considerations and challenges? What specifications are common? What fluid properties are critical? Density, Viscosity, Vapour Pressure; how are these best calculated for design, and then measured and maintained in the field? What about the effects of volumetric shrinkage and asphaltene precipitation?
