Total Oil Formation Volume Factor (Bo,t)
The total formation volume factor (Bt) is defined as the ratio of the total volume of the hydrocarbon mixture (i.e., oil and gas, if present), at the prevailing pressure and temperature per unit volume of the stock-tank oil.
Bt is used to describe the pressure-volume relationship of hydrocarbon systems below their bubble-point pressure.
