Deposition of paraffin wax is one of the major areas of concern in the oil and gas industry. Despite many publications and technological advancement the area is still under study to further avoid losses of revenue generation. Several experimental studies carried out in single phase or two-phase flows were reported to be conducted with horizontal, vertical, incline or twisted pipeline flow loop. This study provides a comprehensive review of different geometry used in the experimental studies of wax precipitation and deposition. The main features of the previous study are summarized, with model formulation, assumptions, governing equations, solution method and limitations highlighted. A clear relationship between different mechanisms for wax precipitation and deposition are identified and the progression of each experimental model is presented to capture major improvements. Finally, the paper offered various strategies on how to anticipate, prevent, and remediate wax problems in oil and gas production. Recommendations were made with view to magnify the problems of wax deposition based on different curvature effect at subsea oil and gas production system.
