    Waxy Crude Oil
    A Waxy crude usually consists of: i. A variety of light and intermediate hydrocarbons (paraffins, aromatics, naphtenic, etc.). ii. Wax as defined above. iii. A variety of other heavy organic (non-hydrocarbon) compounds, even though at very low conc entrations including resins, asphaltenes, diamondoids, mercaptdans, organo- metallics, etc. When the temperature of a waxy crude oil is lowered, first the heavier fractions of its wax content start to freeze out. For a waxy crude it is customary to measure its cloud point and pour point according to ASTM methods.
