Black-Oil Properties – Definitions 1 Black-Oil Properties – Definitions Instructional Objectives: - Define oil specific gravity and define oil gravity in o API. - Define oil bubble-point pressure, p b . - Define oil formation volume factor, B o , explain the factors that affect B o , and sketch the typical shape of B o versus p . - Define solution gas/oil ratio, R s , explain the factors that affect R s , and sketch the typical shape of R s versus p . - Define the coefficient of isothermal compressibility of oil, c o , and sketch the typical shape of c o versus p . - Define oil density, ρ o , explain the factors which affect o , and sketch the typical shape of o versus p . - Define oil viscosity, μ o , explain the factors which affect o , and sketch the typical shape of o versus p . Specific Gravity of Oil: w o o γ = - Both densities measured at the same temperature and pressure, usually 60 o F and atmospheric pressure. - Sometimes called o (60/60).
