English term or phrase: lean oil
it´s a term used in oil refineries. I´m not sure if it could be translated as "petróleo bruto" or "petróleo delgado", or what, like in "lean gas" it´s "gas pobre"

Aceite pobre
Explanation:
In an oil extraction process (extraction is a refining method) the lean oil is the one that absorbs the extract or component you want to remove from a stream. After it absobs the component, then it is called rich oil. Yes, it is similar to lean gas and rich gas. Hope it helps.
