Petroleum has a specific gravity of 0.88 which means 1 liter weighs 0.88 kilograms.

From the volume page we know that:

1 barrel [US, petroleum] = 158.9872972 liter

So 1 barrel weighs:

158.9872972 * 0.88 = 139.908821536 kilograms

1 metric ton is 1000 kilograms:

139.908821536 / 1000 = 7.1475121

So there are a little over 7 barrels of petroleum in a metric ton.

This is assuming that 0.88 is the correct specific gravity. Since as you said, the grade of the oil may make a difference. If you know the exact specific gravity of the oil in question, you will get more accurate results.

1 metro ton equal how many crude oil barrels?

I am going on the assumption you mean "metric" ton. A standard ton is 2000 pounds. A metric Ton is 2205 pounds. 6-8 oil barrels equal a ton. assuming its 8 in this case, that is 250 lbs per barrel. That equals ALMOST 9 barrels of oil (8.82). If we assume is it 6 barrels per ton, than 2000 divided into 6 is 333.33. A metric ton (2205) divided into 333 equals 6.62. A bit over 6and a half barrels of crude oil in your metric ton.

How many barrels is in a metric ton?

Unanswerable question. A barrel is a unit of volume, a tonne (to spell it correctly, to distinguish it from the Imperial-system based US and UK Ton) is a unit of mass. So there are no barrels in a tonne.

How much volume is a metric ton of crude oil?

A metric ton of average crude oil at standard temperature and pressure has a volume of about 7.33 barrels. A cubic meter of oil is about 6.29 barrels. Barrels of oil hold 42 US gallons, so a metric ton of crude oil has a volume of about 308 US gallons or about 256 Imperial gallons

How many barrels of oil equal 100000 metric tons?

Slightly more than 720,461 barrels. A single metric ton = 1,000kg. So in 100,000 metric tons there are 100,000,000kg (one-hundred million.) A standard barrel of oil weighs 138.8kg. (See link) So, 100,000,000 / 138.8 = 720,461.095 barrels.

How many Barrels per metric ton of crude oil?

As the question is how many barrels per metric ton of 'crude oil', you can use the calculator on the U.S. Energy Information Administrations site: then select 'energy calculators'Using the crude oil calculator shows 1 metric ton = 7.33 bbl crude oil. Crude oils vary depending on their specific gravity so this is an average for crude oil in the U.S.Depends on density, however 7.33 bbl per tonne is a reasonable estimate.1metric ton(1000kgs)=7.3 barrels. 1barrel=42 US gallons.

How many barrels are in one metric ton of gas?

a barrel is a barrel... there are no different types. and for a substance to weigh up to a metric ton means it is heavy enough to weigh just that. therefore, there are approximately 159 liters in a barrel and 1184 liters in a metric ton. if that is true, to get the exact number of barrels in a metric ton, simply divide 1184 liters by 159 liters i.e (1184/159)= 7.5 barrels (approximately) in one metric ton. in the same manner, 100,000 metric ton is approximately 7.5 * 100,000= 750,000 barrels.
