Paraffin related problems in the oilfield continue to hamper efficient production operations. Over the years, many thermal, chemical and microbial techniques have been developed for paraffin removal and inhibition. But it is very difficult to decide which treatment process will be the most efficient in a given environment. Only an experienced person with a vast knowledge of previous treatment operations can give a suitable decision. This project aims at making a comparative study of these techniques with an objective of creating a decision tree to diagnose and suggest the best remedial measure for such problems.
