Three Kinds of Oil Distillate Blendstock

Oil Distillate Blendstocks are petroleum products usually grouped into three categories: light oil distillates (LPG, gasoline, naphtha), middle oil distillates (kerosene, diesel), heavy oil distillates and residuum (heavy fuel oil, lubricating oils, wax, asphalt). Refineries produce oil distillates composed of one or more blendstocks from crude oil fractionation and conversion units at the refinery.

Uses of Oil Distillate Blendstock

Utilizing oil distillate blendstock, various diesel fuels and other petroleum based fuels used in engines are created. Examples of oil distillate fuels include jet fuel, heating oil, kerosene, No. 4 fuel, DMX, DMA, DMB and DMC. Oil distillate blendstock containing residual fuel may also be created.
