I'm assuming that you're talking about crude oil and that you realize the "gram" is a measurement of weight and not volume. Understand also that the weight of crude oil will differ dependig on its temperature and where it comes from. The answer is as follows: Crude oil can weigh anwhere from 790 kilograms per cubic meter to 973 kilograms per cubic meter. Since there are 42 gallons in one barrel, its weight will range from 125,600 grams to 154,695 grams.

The number of kilogram in a barrel will depend on the gravity of the oil, commonly expressed in degrees API. I will use 33 degree API oil as an example which has a specific gravity of 0.86. SG = 141.5/(131.5+33) = 0.86 (0.86) (1000 kg/m3) (0.1569 m3/ bbl) = 134.8 kg.

A barrel is not a unit of measure, but rather a type of container for holding things. Since barrels can be of different volumes and hold matter of various density, there is no standard weight for a barrel of anything.
