Emulsions can be difficult to treat and may cause several operational problems in wet‐crude handling facilities and gas/oil separation plants. The emulsions must be treated to remove the dispersed water and associated inorganic salts to meet crude specifications and reduce corrosion and catalyst poisoning.
Emulsions occur in almost every phase of oil production and processing including gas/oil separation plants, wet‐crude handling facilities, reservoirs, wellbores, wellheads, crude storage, petroleum processing and pipelines.
