heavy crudes
Explanation:
The term refers to heavy-weight crude oils, i.e., those whose API (American Petroleum Institute) gravity is 20 degrees or less. Because special methods are required to extract them from underground formations, heavy crude oils are more expensive to produce than the lighter oils.

Cheers,
