So there is heavy oil at this marriage of whom?

Wasn't the bride upset when you got heavy oil all over her? Who cares what the API gravity of the oil is, and why would they care?

so SG =141.5/(11.5 + 131.5) = 0.9895

I can see why you are having separation issues with a marriage of "heavy" oil, with a SG near that of water. You should have had a prenuptial arrangement, like a really, really, really big Imhoff cone for a separator tank, and lots of emulsion breaker added.

And there's the problem with those prearranged marriages.

They usually are between two incompatible parties.
