The economical value of crude oil is influenced by various chemical and physical properties, Therefore, enhancing the crude oil properties can be of great benefit for crude oil-exporting countries as Iraq. The process of enhancing crude oil properties can be carried out through the blending of different crude oils from different wells. In this research, we illustrate Iraqi crude oil enhancing through the blending of three different Iraqi oils, Nahran Umar Crude, Badra Crude, and West Qurna Crude. The blending process was carried out using a common industrially used simulator for the oil and gas field, Aspen HYSYS.
