This paper describes the construction and testing of a simple, experimental tool setup that enables determination of the pressure–viscosity relationship for high viscosity oils. Comparing the determined pressure–viscosity relationship with a reference rheometer measuring the viscosity at ambient pressure yields reasonable agreement. The computed viscosity at elevated pressures was well represented by the Chu and Cameron model.
