  Some physicochemical properties of 10 samples of crude oil from different well heads for laboratory analysis have been studied. ASTM-D97 Laboratory Method was used by preheating oil sample to 60-75°C then cooled at the rate of 0.15°C min-1. The temperature of first occurrence of turbidity was taken as Wax Appearance Temperature (WAT) crude oil samples were found to be characterized with basic sediment and water ranges from 0.1-90% (BS and W), API gravity ranges from light crude ([email protected]°F) to heavy crude ([email protected]°F), viscosity (cst) at 40°F ranges from 18.42-25.20, wax content (wt.%) ranges from traces from 6-10% and composition of crude oil laboratory results proves that Nigerian crude have high content of paraffins in excess of 5%, high basic sediment which have high tendency to clog the internal pipe diameter. The knowledge provided in this study has direct application to paraffinic crude oils productivity enhancement in terms of costs reduction (cleaning and deposits removal) and oil production improvement. Correct selection of a prevention treatment will avoid extremely expensive and inefficient trial-and-error procedures. The strategy employed in this study was to use temperature and fluid characterization analysis of Niger Delta crude to predict the potential for wax related problems in Niger Delta oilfields as evident in the research.

  The study presents a novel route for production of propylene glycol using chlorination and dechlorination of alcohol. Isopropyl alcohol was reacted with hydrochloric acid where chlorine substituted hydroxyl group in the alcohol. This chlorinated propyl was peroxidated using hydrogen peroxide to produce propylene glycol in a two stage reaction. Observation from product yield showed a profound yield of propylene glycol when chloropropane was peroxide by hydrogen peroxide at a temperature of 4°C and a flow rate of 2.5 mL min-1.

  The age of natural gas and its derivatives like Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) has finally arrived. All vital signs point to its significant increasing role in the total energy picture around the world and it currently applies for one quarter of the world energy supply. Nigeria has abundant gas resources but its effective distribution to meet domestic and industrial needs is a problem the industry must solve. Gas distribution to various homes is operational in different parts of the world but very limited in Nigeria. Currently Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is distributed using bottles. The problems of safety associated with the bottled gas and its transportation can be avoided by the use of pipelines. The need therefore arises to design gas pipelines with appropriate and cost-effective materials to supply the homes. Pipelines ensure uninterrupted supply of gas to homes for use. This research evaluates the application of Reinforced Composite Piping (RCP) technology in Nigeria and its economic implication. This technology is suited to replace the traditional metallic structures and plastic pipes in the industry by filling critical areas for durable, cost-effective piping systems, excellent corrosion resistance and maintenance free performance. The capacity of RCP pipes to resist fatigue and provide design/fabrication flexibility makes it a suitable technology for effective Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) distribution.

  The conversion of sawdust to ethanol to determine the conditions of temperature and other variables that maximize the yield of ethanol. The effect of temperature variation on the fermentation step was analyzed. The method employed here was to use decrystallization, acid hydrolysis, neutralization, fermentation of reducing sugars using yeast, distillation and finally analysis to determine the percentage concentration of ethanol. It was observed that at moderately high temperature and enzyme loading of 30%, the yield of ethanol was appreciably high for the batch process fermentation.
