Basrah medium crude oil specifications

Platts reports that Iraq plans to launch a new Basrah Medium crude oil grade "whenever logistics allow," to provide "more stability" in existing grades. It quotes Ali Nazar al-Shatari, the Deputy Director General of the State Oil Marketing Organization (SOMO) as saying the new grade will have an API gravity of 29-30 degrees, with 2 percent sulphur.

Crude oil is considered "heavy" if it has long hydrocarbon chains, or "light" if it has short hydrocarbon chains: an API gravity of 34 or higher is "light", between 31-33 is "medium", and 30 or below is "heavy". Its main loading point is the strategically critical Al Basrah Oil Terminal. Kuwait Export Crude (2.6 million barrels/day): It is a medium sour grade which is produced in Kuwait.

Approximately 18% of the total crude used for this report lies below the 25.7 line, in addition the majority of the crude falls between the 30-39 degree range, over half (52%).

The new Basrah Medium grade will have an API gravity of 29-30 degrees and 2%sulfur, SOMO Deputy Director General Ali Nazar al-Shatari told S&P GlobalPlatts. There will also be slight changes to the existing grades. Basrah Heavy willremain largely the same at 23 degrees API and 4% sulfur.

In the international petroleum industry, crude oil products are traded on various oil bourses based on established chemical profiles, delivery locations, and financial terms. The chemical profiles, or crude oil assays, specify important properties such as the oil's API gravity. chains: an API gravity of 34 or higher is "light", between 31-33 is "medium",  28 Jun 2019 "One major marketing strategy is to achieve stability in oil grade specification," Ghadhban said Thursday at the conference.

Current production is roughly 3 million barrels per day. The Basrah Light stream is exported from the Al Basra Oil Terminal and Khor al-Amaya Oil Terminal. The Basrah Heavy stream is exported from the Al Basra Oil Terminal and Khor al-Amaya Oil Terminal. Load Port Data The Al Basra Oil Terminal, commonly referred to as ABOT, is a deep sea island offshore crude terminal located approximately 31 nautical miles SE of the Iraqi port of Al Faw. The new Basrah Medium grade will have an API gravity of 29-30 degrees and 2%sulfur, SOMO Deputy Director General Ali Nazar al-Shatari told S&P GlobalPlatts. There will also be slight changes to the existing grades. Basrah Heavy willremain largely the same at 23 degrees API and 4% sulfur. Some of the most important physical properties of crude oil include: oAPI oAPI = (141.5/SG 15oF) - 131.5 The purpose of this equation was to extend the range of the specific gravity scale. Platts reports that Iraq plans to launch a new Basrah Medium crude oil grade "whenever logistics allow," to provide "more stability" in existing grades. It quotes Ali Nazar al-Shatari, the Deputy Director General of the State Oil Marketing Organization (SOMO) as saying the new grade will have an API gravity of 29-30 degrees, with 2 percent sulphur.
