I'm no expert... but I have done a lot of A/C work on my and friends vehicles.
If the compressor comes with oil as per spec then you should be good to go. If oil is spilled/leaks out during installation then that oil needs to be replaced. You can add what is needed to the dryer via pour container or you can buy a 1-2 ounce tap-able can of oil that can be added through the low pressure (suction) side using manifold/tap hoses after vacuuming or while the vehicle is running and with the compressor engaged. I generally use oil that has UV dye in it so that leaks (if any) may be somewhat easier to detect/trace.
