en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oil_refinery

An oil refinery or petroleum refinery is an industrial process plant where crude oil is processed and refined into more useful products such as petroleum naphtha, gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt base, heating oil, kerosene, and liquefied petroleum gas. Oil refineries are typically large, sprawling industrial complexes with ...

Petroleum refining processes are the chemical engineering processes and other facilities used in petroleum refineries to transform crude oil into useful products such as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), gasoline or petrol, kerosene, jet fuel, diesel oil and fuel oils. Petroleum refineries are very large industrial complexes that ...

The first part of refining crude oil is to heat it until it boils. The boiling liquid is separated into different liquids and gases in a distillation column. These liquids are used to make petrol, paraffin, diesel fuel etc. Crude oil is a mixture of different chemical called hydrocarbons. The boiling oil turns into a mixture of gases in the  ...

The heavier or thicker the oil, the more work the refinery must do to distill it into a useful form. The second characteristic is the oil's sulfur content. Low sulfur crude oil is called “sweet,” while crude with a high sulfur content is called “sour.” Because sulfur is harmful to the catalysts used in the refining process, the greater the ...

Turning Oil Into Gas When you see all those cars at the gas station filling up with unleaded, you may not stop to think about how that gasoline got there. It wasn't pumped out of the ground in that form. The same goes for jet airplane fuel. It didn' t start out that way--it took a long refining process to become fuel. You could never ...

Gasoline is made from crude oil. The crude oil pumped out of the ground is a black liquid called petroleum. This liquid contains hydrocarbons, and the carbon atoms in crude oil link together in chains of different lengths. It turns out that hydrocarbon molecules of different lengths have different properties and behaviors.

Dec 14, 2010 ... OIL is ABIOTIC!!! and has been for ions. It was the masters at Standard Oil ( the original monster oil company which was broken up into the 7 oil companies of Chevron, Exxon, which were OWNED and funded by the Vatican, FACT NOT BS!! ( they are still one company!! even though morons do not know it!!)

May 10, 2017 ... In 2016, refineries in the United States produced an average of about 20 gallons of motor gasoline and about 11 gallons of ultra-low sulfur distillate fuel oil (most of which is sold as diesel fuel and in several states as heating oil) from one 42- gallon barrel of crude oil. Many other petroleum products are also ...
