Abstract

The objective of this proposed research is to examine the characteristic and stability of Indonesia's crude oil emulsions. More specifically, this research aims to determine the effect of agitation and addition of fine / solid particles to the stability of Indonesia's crude oil emulsion. Crude oil is a complex mixture which hydrocarbons as a main component. Oil production from the well is always accompanied by water content leading to water in oil emulsion (W/O emulsion). The older the oil well, the greater the water content. Water in oil emulsion causes many problems during the process. Crude oil from different regions have different characteristics as well. Therefore it is necessary to study the characteristics and stability of emulsions. Characteristic study includes the physical and chemical properties of crude oil. Study of emulsion stability gives an idea about the proper method to handle crude oil emulsion. Emulsion stability in terms of time, the volume of separated water, and oil. From the research, it is known that agitation and addition of fine particles (CaCO3) influenced the stability of crude oil. The higher the agitation velocity, the greater emulsion stability of crude oil. The more addition of fine particles, the greater emulsion stability of crude oil.
