Asphaltene deposition has a significant detrimental effect on oilfield production. The key to effective treatment of asphaltene deposition is recognition of the problem. Asphaltene and effective treatment can be identified and quantified using laboratory methods. The most commonly way to asphaltene precipitation reduction is applying an asphaltene inhibitor. Most researchers investigate the effect of asphaltene inhibitors on fluid and precipitation reduction in static tests. This study is a coherent approach to measure effect of asphaltene precipitation on reservoir permeability and survey effect of asphaltene inhibitors on damage permeability
