AbstractCrude oil is an unprocessed petroleum product. This substance is hydrocarbon deposits and organic materials. It’s utilized in several ways. It is utilized in industries, transfers, and dynamic. Heavy crude oil and bitumen are difficult to extract and treat from their resources due to their increased viscosity, limited mobility, and high carbon-to-hydrogen atomic ratios. So organic ingredients would be required to minimize crude oil viscosity. The viscosity of crude oil is a major issue for oil producers and transporters. The usefulness of waste biomaterials as viscosity reduction agents was investigated on heavy crude oils from Oman. This research collected natural materials to examine how they influenced the oil’s viscosity. Date nutshell and kernel are chosen organic materials. Using waste biomaterials instead of chemical additive is more eco- friendly. This project investigated three variables (size of particles, amount of materials powder and temperature). The higher the organic matter particle size, the greater the influence on lowering crude oil viscosity. Moreover, the lowering mass of powder has higher influence on lowering the viscosity of heavy crude oil. Also, when the temperature rises, the viscosity of heavy crude oil decreases.
