Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG)

Are a mixture of light hydrocarbons with a boiling point from -50 to 0 °C liquefied under pressure. LPG is used as fuel, and their composition can vary considerably.

Produced mainly from associated gas. Transported and stored in cylinders and gas tanks. Used for cooking, boiling water, heating is used in lighters as a fuel on vehicles.


The mixture of liquid hydrocarbons, obtained by direct distillation of crude oil or the cracking of petroleum products.

Is a transparent yellowish liquid. Previously used as motor fuel for tractors. Today it is used as a raw material for the petrochemical industry and for production of gasoline, in the form of supplements and as raw materials for the production of high-octane additives.


A mixture of light hydrocarbons with a boiling point of from 30 to 200 °C. is obtained by sublimation and selection of the fractions of crude oil boiling within certain temperature limits.

Gasoline is used as fuel for carburetor and fuel injection engines, high momentum rocket fuel, in the production of paraffin as a solvent, as a combustible material.

Diesel fuel

Used as a fuel in a diesel internal combustion engine.

The main consumers of diesel fuel — railway transport, freight transport, water transport, military equipment, agricultural machinery, and in recent years, and light duty diesel vehicles.

In addition to diesel engines, diesel residual fuel (diesel oil) is often used as a boiler fuel, for impregnating leather, in the lubricating-cooling and quenching fluids for mechanical and heat treatment of metals.

Aviation Kerosene

A mixture of hydrocarbons boiling in the temperature range 150-250 °C, clear, colorless, oily, flammable liquid obtained by direct distillation or distillation of crude oil.

Kerosene is used as jet fuel, a flammable liquid component of rocket fuel, a combustible during firing of glass and porcelain products for household heating and lighting devices, in the apparatus for cutting metals, as a solvent, raw material for the refining industry. Is applied for cleaning mechanisms for removing rust.

Mazut Fuel Oil

Liquid product is dark brown, the remainder after separation of crude oil or its products recyclable gasoline, kerosene and gas oil fractions boiling up to 350-360°C.

Fuel oil used as fuel for steam boilers, boiler plants and industrial furnaces for the production of bunker oil, heavy engine fuel for crosshead diesel engines and bunker fuel
