Fuel Oil

Fuel oil is a fraction obtained from petroleum distillation. Fuel oil (also known as heavy oil, marine fuel, or furnace oil) refers to the heaviest commercial fuel acquired from refining crude oil, either as a distillate or residue.

However, generally, fuel oil refers to any liquid fuel that is used in a furnace/boiler to generate heat or in an engine to generate power. The ISO 8217 international standard divides marine fuels into distillate marine fuels and residual marine fuels (RMA).

It can be also categorized based on the Sulphur content as the following:

High Sulphur Fuel Oil (HSFO): Max. 3.5%
Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (LSFO): Max 1.0%

Ultra-Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (ULSFO): Max 0.1%

Lower viscosity is more desirable. Fuel oil has a maximum sulfur content determined by environmental concerns. Residual fuel oil or AR is the heaviest among a range of different fuel oil grades. The high-quality residue of the atmospheric tower is a refinery product resulting from the distillation processes of light and heavy crude oil Its sulfur range is smaller than 2.5%. The low sulfur range makes it perfect for fuel ships, cement factories, and power plants. The high sulfur range of this product makes it suitable for fuel power plants, cement or brick factories, and power plants constructed far from cities.
