The aim of this technical paper is to present the idea through an experiment that magnetic field can be used as an alternative tool to change the relaxation modulus of crude oil and thus improving its transportation efficiency. During the experiment, it was found that the contact angle between crude oil and sensor probe was influenced by magnetic treatment which resulted in the prevention of wax sticking on the sensor probe. From the experiment it was confirmed that the field can also be used to prevent the wax accumulation.
