Title: Effects of Underground Storage Conditions on Characteristics of Petroleum

Author(s): Paul W. Prutzman (2)


This paper describes certain effects which may be produced on crude petroleum during migration or storage by contact with oxidizing agents and sulphur, by fractional distillation and divided migration of the products, by percolation through beds of adsorptive solids, and by possible subjection to cracking temperatures under pressure. The wholly theoretical conclusions reached are based on a debatable assumption of migration during long time periods and, being theoretical, are set forth as processes which might occur under suitable conditions and are not urged in regard to any specific deposit.
