New empirical correlations have been developed to predict viscosities of petroleum fractions (C-5-C-15) at 40 degreesC under atmospheric pressure. Viscosities, densities and quantitative hydrocarbon analyses of 42 petroleum fractions were experimentally determined. Viscosities were correlated with density and/or average molecular weight data.
