Fuel Oil
Fuel Oil is a fraction obtained from petroleum distillation, either as a distillate or a residue.

Broadly speaking, Oil is any liquid petroleum product, which is burned in a furnace or boiler for the generation of heat or used in an engine for the generation of power, except oils having a flash point of approximately 40 oC (104 o F). Oil is made of long hydrocarbon chains, particularly alkanes, cycloalkanes and aromatics.

The term Fuel Oil is also used in a stricter sense to refer only to the heaviest commercial fuel that can be obtained from crude oil, heavier than gasoline and naphtha.

It is a volatile distillate oil intended for vaporizing pot-type burners. It is the kerosene refinery cut that boils off right after the heavy naphtha cut used for gasoline. Older names include coal oil, stove oil and range oil.Fuel Oil

It was a distillate oil for burners requiring low-viscosity fue. Oil is a commercial heating oil for burner installations not equipped with preheaters.It may be obtained from the heavy gas oil cut.

Residual fuels represent the heavy yields from the refining processes. Straight-run fuel oils are produced solely from atmospheric distillation and are generally used as an intermediate feedstock for further processing within the refining system to increase the yields of lighter products.

Cracked fuel oils are used as fuel for power generation, marine bunkers and large industrial heating plants. Generally categorised between high and low-sulphur grades, with the latter containing less than 1.0 % sulphur by weight.
