PREDICTIVE CORRELATION FOR THE VISCOSITY - TEMPERATURE RELATION OF SOME IRAQI CRUDE OILS

Abstract

The viscosity at different temperature are measured for some Iraqi wells, A mathematical model wasproposed to describe the viscosity as a function of temperature depending on the experimental results ,All the samples were collected from storage tanks of the following sites: South of Al Rumeela, Northof Al Rumeela, Al Halfaya and Bozorgan. The results give good agreement with the experimentalresult that was measured for Iraqi wells, where the maximum average percentage of error was 7.4 % ,the maximum AAD% was 4.4% and the maximum SD was 0.49013%.
