The deposit formation process in water/oil emulsions based on waxy high-resin oils with different amounts of the aqueous phase has been studied. It has been shown that the deposition rate greatly increases with an increase in the relative amount of the aqueous phase. Relationships of the component composition of paraffin hydrocarbons and the structural group composition of asphaltenes in asphaltene–resin–wax deposits with the water content of the emulsions have been revealed.
