Oil Formation Volume Factor (OFVF) is an important reservoir fluid property. Ideally, OFVF is determined experimentally in the laboratory; However, this value is not always available and correlations are consequently used to determine it. At this work, first the published OFVF are reviewed and then a new correlation is developed to estimate OFVF of crude oils in Middle East. This correlation is applicable for crude oils of API ranging between 19 to 49. The comparison of this new correlation with other published ones shows that it is much more accurate then the other ones. The absolute average deviation error (percent) of the new correlation is about 1.13%.
