Oil Barrels: A Unit of Volume

Oil barrels are a unit of volume that are used to measure crude oil and petroleum products, such as gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, etc. They are different from fluid barrels, which are used to measure other liquids, such as beer, wine, water, etc. Oil barrels are also different from barrel of oil equivalent (BOE), which is a unit of energy based on the approximate energy released by burning one barrel of crude oil.

Definition of Oil Barrels

An oil barrel is defined as 42 US gallons or 0.159 cubic meters in the US customary system of measurement. It is equivalent to 34.9723 imperial gallons or 158.987 liters in the imperial system. An oil barrel is also equal to 5.6146 cubic feet or 6.2898 oil barrels in the metric system.

History of Oil Barrels

The origin of the term barrel as a unit of measure is uncertain, but it may have derived from the French word baril, which means a small cask or keg. Barrels have been used since ancient times to store and transport various goods, especially liquids and dry grains. The size and shape of barrels varied depending on the type and quantity of the goods, the availability of materials, and the customs of different regions and countries.

The use of oil barrels as a unit of measure dates back to the 19th century, when the petroleum industry emerged in the United States and other countries. The first oil wells produced oil that was stored in wooden barrels that were readily available from the whiskey industry. The standard size of these barrels was 42 US gallons, which was also the size of a tierce, a unit of measure for wine and salt.

The use of oil barrels as a unit of measure became more widespread as the oil market developed and expanded globally. Oil barrels were convenient for measuring and transporting large quantities of oil across long distances by rail, ship, pipeline, etc. Oil barrels were also used for pricing and trading oil in various markets and exchanges.

How to Convert Oil Barrels

To convert oil barrels to other units of volume, one can use the following formulas:

  • To convert oil barrels to cubic meters: multiply by 0.159
  • To convert oil barrels to liters: multiply by 158.987
  • To convert oil barrels to cubic feet: multiply by 5.6146
  • To convert oil barrels to gallons (US): multiply by 42
  • To convert oil barrels to gallons (UK): multiply by 34.9723
  • To convert oil barrels to BOE: divide by 6.2898

Where Oil Barrels are Used

Oil barrels are mainly used in the United States and some other countries that still use the US customary system of measurement. They are often used for measuring and reporting the production, consumption, reserves, and trade of crude oil and petroleum products.

In some countries that use the metric system of measurement, such as Canada and Australia, oil barrels are sometimes used as an informal or approximate unit of volume for certain types of crude oil or petroleum products. For example, in Canada, heavy crude oil is sometimes sold by the barrel, which is equivalent to about 159 liters or 0.159 cubic meters.

In some countries that have their own traditional units of volume based on barrels or similar containers, such as India and China, oil barrels are not commonly used or recognized. Instead, they use units such as tonnes (about 7.33 barrels), kilolitres (about 6.29 barrels), or tonnes of oil equivalent (about 7.1 barrels).

Example Conversions of Oil Barrels to Other Units

Here are some examples of converting oil barrels to other units of volume:

  • 1 oil barrel = 0.159 cubic meters
  • 2 oil barrels = 317.974 liters
  • 3 oil barrels = 16.8438 cubic feet
  • 4 oil barrels = 168 gallons (US)
  • 5 oil barrels = 174.8615 gallons (UK)
  • 6 oil barrels = 0.9534 BOE
  • 7 oil barrels = 1.113 BOE
US oil barrel can be abbreviated as US bbl oil.

Pints: A Unit of Volume

Pints are a unit of volume that are used to measure liquids, such as water, milk, beer, cider, etc. They are also used to measure some dry goods, such as flour, sugar, rice, etc. They are different from cups, which are a smaller unit of volume. They are also different from liters, which are a larger unit of volume. They are also different from barrel of oil equivalent (BOE), which is a unit of energy based on the approximate energy released by burning one barrel of crude oil.

Definition of Pints

A pint is defined as a unit of volume or capacity in both the imperial and United States customary measurement systems. However, the size of a pint varies depending on the type of pint used:

  • A UK pint is equal to one eighth of a UK gallon in the imperial system of measurement. It is equivalent to 20 fluid ounces or 4 gills in the imperial system. A UK pint is also equal to 0.568 liters or 0.473 US liquid pints in the metric system.
  • A US liquid pint is equal to one eighth of a US liquid gallon in the US customary system of measurement. It is equivalent to 16 fluid ounces or 2 cups in the US customary system. A US liquid pint is also equal to 0.473 liters or 0.833 UK pints in the metric system.
  • A US dry pint is equal to one eighth of a US dry gallon in the US customary system of measurement. It is equivalent to 18.6 fluid ounces or 2.327 cups in the US customary system. A US dry pint is also equal to 0.551 liters or 0.969 UK pints in the metric system.

History of Pints

The origin of the term pint as a unit of measure is uncertain, but it may have derived from the Old French word pinte, which means a measure or quantity. Pints have been used since ancient times to store and transport various liquids and dry goods. The size and shape of pints varied depending on the type and quantity of the goods, the availability of materials, and the customs of different regions and countries.

The use of pints as a unit of measure dates back to the medieval times, when the European system of measurement was established. The standard size of these pints was based on the wine gallon, which was originally defined as the volume of eight pounds of wine at 62 °F. The pint was convenient for measuring and dividing smaller amounts of liquids and dry goods.

The use of pints as a unit of measure continued until the 20th century, when the metric system of measurement was adopted in most countries. The pint was gradually replaced by units such as liters, grams, etc. However, some countries and regions still use pints for certain types of liquids and dry goods, especially in the United States and the United Kingdom and Ireland and some Commonwealth nations.
