This paper reports an investigation on the precipitation and adsorption of asphaltene on reservoir rocks and other mineral. This paper also discussed the effect of asphaltene adsorption on water-oil distribution and oil transport. Results shows that asphaltene play a major role in controlling wettability of reservoir rocks. The detail experimental work and results are available in full text article.
