Oil & Gas

BITUMEN

Bitumen is a black, oily, viscous material that is a naturally-occurring organic by product of decomposed organic materials. Bitumen was mixed with other materials throughout prehistory and throughout the world for use as a sealant, adhesive, building mortar, incense, and decorative application on pots, buildings. The material was also useful in waterproofing canoes and other water transport.

Other names: Asphalt and Tar.

Fuel Oil

A simple definition for fuel oil is a lighter type of oil, or a liquid byproduct of crude oil, which is used for energy, especially in regard to heating. When petroleum is refined, there are two main categories under which it is classified. One is distillate oils, which includes diesel, and the other is residual oils, which includes things like kerosene. Different types of fuel oil are classified under both categories. Distillate fuel oil is the type generally used for home heating. The term fuel oil is also used in a stricter sense to refer heavier than gasoline and naphtha.

Other Names: Marine Fuel, Heavy Oil

JET FUEL

Jet Fuel is a type of aviation fuel designed for use in aircraft powered by gas-turbine engines . It is clear to straw-colored in appearance. The most commonly used fuels for commercial aviation are Jet A and Jet A-1 which are produced to a standardized international specification. The only other jet fuel commonly used in civilian turbine-engine powered aviation is Jet B which is used for its enhanced cold-weather performance.

Other Names: Aviation fuel, Aviation Turbine Fuel (ATF) and Avtur.

MAZUT

Mazut is  a heavy, low quality fuel oil, used in generating plants and similar applications. In the United States and Western Europe mazut is blended or broken down with the end product being diesel.

Mazut may be used for heating houses in former USSR and in countries of Far East that do not have the facilities to blend or break it down into more traditional petro-chemicals. In the west, furnaces that burn Mazut are commonly called “waste oil” heaters or “waste oil” furnaces.

GAS OIL

An oily liquid obtained in the fractional distillation of petroleum, boiling between the kerosene and lubricating oil fractions: used esp. as a diesel fuel and heating oil.

STYRENE MONOMER

Styrene Monomer is a colourless oily liquid that evaporates easily and has a sweet smell, although high concentrations have a less pleasant odour and used in polymer industries as a raw material.
