A Correlation For Predicting The Viscosity Of Nigerian Crude Oils

AUST.RACT

An -elnpTricaZ'-eq"uarlon that could be used for

predicting the viscosity of Nigerian crudes is

presented in this paper.

The correlation uses oil specific gravity as the main

correlating parameter, and also incorporates the

effects of reservoir pressure, temperature and oil

formation volume factor. '

i 'i _. .

Dcua from well over 400 samples of Nigerian crudes

wae used for developing the correlation, with most

samples however, from reservoirs alar above

saturation pressure. The results show however that

the correlation could have general applicability.

The correlation when compared with. some earlier

works proved 10 be more accurate.for Nigerian

crudes, Graphical and Statistical error analyses

undertaken suggest good performance and accuracy.

The correlation should prove valid for estimating the

viscosity of Nigerian crudes, as well as other crude'

Iyp~s /i.Ning properties thai fall within the range of

the data used in this work.
