EXPORT CRUDES FOR THE '90S CHARACTERISTICS OF NORTH SEA'S FLOTTA CRUDE UPDATED
Anne K. Rhodes Refining/Petrochemical Editor The assay of Flotta crude oil from the British North Sea has been updated (OGJ, June 6, 1983, p. 75). The inclusion of additional fields over the years has decreased the crude's gravity by 1 API and decreased its sulfur content by 0.13 wt %. Table 1 presents distillation data for Flotta. The Flotta pipeline system now combines oil from Claymore, Hamish, Highlander, Scapa, Tartan, Petronella, and Ivanhoe/Rob Roy fields.
