... Abstract Reservoir engineering calculations required reservoir fluid viscosity data. In the absence of reliable experimental data, empirically derived correlations are used to predict the PVT property. However, several viscosity correlations in the literature were developed using regional data...

... Abstract Unconventional resources merit strong attention in the oilfield today. Great value is placed on understanding the amount and viscosity of the oil which in turn guides the production strategy. We demonstrate a workflow employed in Middle East carbonate reservoirs containing intermediate...

... of impingement and restrictions. In addition, crude oil generally contains naturally occurring interfacial active materials which act as emulsifiers. When the produced fluids are subjected to such shear they mix and form a water-in-oil emulsion. This emulsion carries a viscosity that can be many times higher...
