When crude oil is brought to the surface by whatever means, it contains many undesirable impurities, including salts, suspended solids and water soluble trace metals/slits, iron oxides, sand etc. The salt content in the crude oil varies depending on source of the crude oil. When a mixture from many crude oil sources is processed in refinery, the salt content can vary greatly.
