|How Many Barrels Of Crude Oil Are In 1 Metric Ton??? by easternunion: 10:59am On Sep 20, 2014|
The exact number depends on the grade of crude oil. Crude has an average specific gravity of 0.88 which means 1liter weighs 0.88kg.
1 barrel [US] = 158.9872972 liters
So 1 barrel weighs:
158.9872972 * 0.88 = 139.908821536kg
1 metric ton is 1000 kilograms:
139.908821536 / 1000 = 7.1475121
So there are a little over 7 barrels of Crude Oil in a metric ton.
This is assuming that 0.88 is the correct specific gravity. If you know the exact specific gravity of the oil in question, you will get more accurate results.
