Crude Oil Viscosity
Dead-Oil Viscosity
The dead-oil viscosity is defined as the viscosity of crude oil at
atmospheric pressure (no gas in solution) and system temperature.

Saturated-Oil Viscosity
The saturated (bubble-point)-oil viscosity is defined as the viscosity
of the crude oil at the bubble-point pressure and reservoir
temperature.

Undersaturated-Oil Viscosity
The undersaturated-oil viscosity is defined as the viscosity of the
crude oil at a pressure above the bubble-point and reservoir
temperature.
