Canadian Crude Quality Technical Association - Analytical Methods - Bitumen Dewatering and Volumetric Correction
Bitumen Dewatering and Volumetric Correction
publication added: 2016-04-19

This project was created to set guidelines for the best practices when preparing bitumen samples for analytical work, as well as assess the applicability of API 12.3 “Calculation of Volumetric Shrinkage Resulting from Blending Light Hydrocarbons and Crude Oil” to blends of bitumen and practical diluents.

The report provides correction factors to API 12.3 for use with bitumen blending with diluents.
