Both bubblepoint and dewpoint are saturation pressures for mixture of hydrocarbon and non-hydrocarbon components.
At a given temperature, the condition occurs when an oil releases an infinitesimal bubble of gas from solution when pressure drops below the saturation pressure. This pressure called bubblepoint.
At a given temperature, the condition occurs when a gas condenses an infinitesimal drop of oil from solution when pressure cross the saturation pressure line. This pressure called dewpoint.
