Abstract- The quality of crude oil is affected by post accumulation alteration processes. The oil composition changes due to in-reservoir cracking, thermochemical sulphate reduction, gas de-asphalting, gravity segregation, phase separation, water washing and biodegradation. There are two main types of crude oil: Light crude oil and Heavy crude oil. 

Keywords: Wax content, Aromatic content, Total acid number.
