In present work oxidation of two heavy oils in limestone matrix was studied using simultaneous thermo-gravimetry (TGA), derivative thermogravimetry (DTG) and FTIR-spectroscopy techniques in the temperature range from 25 to 900 degrees C. Before the measurements, the composition and properties of crude oils and limestone were evaluated. Obtained TG and DTG curves shows four different reaction regions: low temperature oxidation (LTO), fuel deposition (FD), high temperature oxidation (HTO) and decomposition of limestone. LTO reactions were accompanied by evaporation of light hydrocarbons, which was confirmed by appearance of stretching vibration bands of C-H groups in FTIR-spectra of evolved gases. Formation of carbon dioxide was observed for all oxidation reaction regions according to spectroscopic data. At the same time, CO was formed only in HTO region for both studied crude oils. Despite the different composition two crude oils have practically the same reactions intervals and peak temperatures. However, crude oil with higher API-gravity has a greater mass loss at the LTO and evaporation regions. The conversion of heavier oil with higher content of asphaltenes is larger during the high-temperature oxidation step.

The objective of this research was to investigate thermal behavior and kinetics of different origin crude oils in limestone matrix by differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) at low heating rates. In DSC experiments, three distinct reaction regions were identified in all of the crude oil + limestone mixtures known as low temperature oxidation (LTO), fuel deposition (FD) and high temperature oxidation (HTO) respectively. Kinetic analysis of the crude oil samples was determined by different models known as AST...

This research was focused on the combustion kinetics and oxidation mechanisms of light crude oils in limestone and sandstone matrices. Similarity of the TGA-DTA curves was produced for different crude oils + limestone or sandstone mixtures indicates that the crude oil undergoes three major transitions, known as low-temperature oxidation, fuel deposition, and high-temperature oxidation when subjected to an oxidizing and constant rate environment. Kinetic analysis of the low- and high-temperature oxidation re...

In this research, thermal characteristics and model free kinetics of five different degrees American Petroleum Institute gravity crude oil samples from different locations were studied using combustion calorimetry and thermogravimetry (TGA) techniques. Higher heating values of crude oils were determined from the combustion calorimetry experiments. It was shown that these values increase with an increase in saturate fraction and degrees API gravity of studied samples and decrease with an increase in viscosit...

In this research, the combustion behavior of six Turkish crude oils (light and medium type) was investigated by thermogravimetry/derivative thermogravimetry (TG/DTG) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) methods under atmospheric air in the absence of rock matrix. Two main reaction intervals were observed on all thermograms known as low temperature oxidation (LTO) and high temperature oxidation (HTO) regions. The resulting curves showed that the mass loss under combustion is accompanied by exothermic ...
