According to characteristics of crude oil batch transportation, analyzed is the mechanism of contaminated products produced during the process and equations are put forward for calculating the contaminated oil volume. It is pointed out that contaminant formation relates to transportation distance, oil types, throughput, shutdown time, terrain,etc. As an example, analyzed and calculated is the contaminated oil volume in the Dong-Huang parallel oil pipeline and measures are put forward for reducing contaminated oil volume.
