      Nipa kernel oil was extracted from kernel of nipa palm (Nypa fruticans). In Indonesia, nipa palm tree grows naturally at East of Sumatra bay from Lampung to Aceh, almost all part of Kalimantan bay, some of Sulawesi bay and Papua bay. The nipa palm tree grows at approximately total of about one thousand square kilometers. The objective of the study was to determine oil yield fresh mature of nipa kernel through soxhlet method. Also the oil yields were practically determined through both wet method and dry method. In the study, characteristics of the oil kernel obtained by soxhlet extraction were also determined. The characteristics determined were viscosity, iodine value, and saponification value. Data showed that the yields of nipa kernel oil were 27,4% (by soxhlet extraction), 23,2% (by dry method), and 25,1% (by wet method). The characteristic data showed that 76,39 cSt,27oC of viscosity value, 25,55% of iodine value, and 32,86 mg KOH/g of saponification value.
