Study of correlation of oil flow properties with nuclear magnetic resonance and self-diffusion characteristics

Authors: T.A. Zaripov, B.I. Gizatullin, F.R. Lozovoi (Kazan (Volda Region) Federal University, RF, Kazan), T.R. Abdullin (OOO NTC Tatneft, RF, Bugulma), K.M. Musin (TatNIPIneft, RF, Bugulma)

Key words: oil, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), viscosity, relaxation time, self-diffusion

Correlation curves of viscosity, average spin-spin relaxation time, and average self-diffusion for crude oil samples from Tatarstan oil fields have been obtained. Two different averaging models were used to calculate mean values. It has been found that self-diffusion D and average spin-spin relaxation time R2 are best correlated in case reciprocal values 1/R and 1/D are averaged.
