In this work, the rheology of a solvent which consisted of monoethanolamine (MEA) as well as water and n-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP) (weight ratio 20:40:40) was studied at gauge pressure up to 5 MPa and temperature range from 303.15 to 333.15 K. The flow chart showed positive linear relationship between shear stress and shear rate for the solvent at all temperature and pressure conditions tested. This trend was consistent with the behaviour of a Newtonian fluid. The dynamic viscosity of MEA-NMP hybrid solvent at temperature from 303.15 to 333.15 K and gauge pressure from (0.1 to 5) MPa was calculated from the rheology data measured.
