Abstract

The influences of oil flow rate, initial sulfur concentration of crude oil, and reservoir rock permeability on elemental sulfur plugging in carbonate oil reservoirs were investigated. Ten dynamic flow experiments were conducted using two actual crude oils of 0.78% and 1.67% sulfur concentrations. In-situ sulfur deposited was measured using scanning electron microscope (SEM) to provide the amount of sulfur deposited along the core samples. The results indicate that crude oil of higher sulfur concentration has higher viscosity than that one of lower concentration.
