This research is focused on the effects of pressure (100-300 Pa) and matrix and on light crude oil combustion in sandstone matrix using pressurized differential scanning calorimetry (PDSC). Light crude oils and sandstone mixtures were prepared to give a composition of 15 mass% crude oil in sandstone matrix. A total of forty-eight PDSC experiments were performed. Roger and Morris kinetic model was used to analyse the data obtained from PDSC experiments and the results are discussed.
