The choice of operating conditions in the oil industry depends on the characteristics of the processed and produced oil. Knowledge of the fluid flow of oil at different pressures and temperatures is essential for the construction of appropriate equipment as well as process management. This is especially important for a new type of oil that contains nanoparticles. The laboratory results show that a small increase in the number of nanoparticles has a positive effect on the amount of thermal diffusivity coefficient. In addition, the integration of nanoparticles with crude oil increases the kinetic capacity of molecules. Also, increasing the volume percentage of nanoparticles added to light and heavy crude oil from 0.0 to 0.8 leads to an average increase of 7.6% in the electrical conductivity coefficient of the oil. The results show that the heat capacity of light and heavy crude oil varies from 4256 to 4457 J/kg. C and 4476 to 5002 J/kg. C, respectively. Moreover, the heat capacity of light and heavy nano-oils is changing from about 4285 to 4496 J/kg. C and 4494 to 5021 J/kg. C, respectively.
