Commonly, Petroleum is regarded as a very close synonym of Crude Oil. However, according to Britannica Encyclopedia, petroleum as a technical term encompasses: the liquid (cru…de oil), gaseous (natural gas), and viscous or solid forms (bitumen and asphalt).
Petroleum is a word derived from Latin: Petra - rock, oleum - oil. Thus, in direct translation petroleum means oil from rock and is commonly regarded as a very close synonym …of Crude Oil. However, according to Britannica Encyclopedia, petroleum as a technical term encompasses: the liquid (crude oil), gaseous (natural gas), and viscous or solid forms (bitumen and asphalt).
Probably, if not they are REALLY close. I hope that helped some. :D

You heat crude oil in a refinery, and this will separate the various products almost as a distillery. Around 20 to 30 percent of the crude ends as basis for production of petr…oleum. This is the reformed, chemicals added making the petrol you use in your car. So to produce 10 gallons of petrol to your car, you need around 50 gallons of crude, and produce gasoil (that can be used as automotive diesel) - say 15 to 25 gallons, and kerosene, that can be used as jet fuel - 10 to 20 gallons, and some heavy tar and 10 to 20 gallons of light nafta. Petrol is one of the more complex processes in a refinery.
Crude oil straight out of the ground is not uniform (clean), but is composed of many fractions which can be extracted simply by weight. Other fractions can be 'cracked' by he…at, pressure, solvents and distillation. To distinguish from other, purer oils, the basic material is called 'crude'. Strictly speaking, 'petroleum' itself is a fraction of crude.
Petrol as u think of it is a refinement of crude oil. Crude oil includes all forms of carbon chain fuels and also impurities so crude would refer to its unrefined quality and …oil to the inclusion of many impurities and different substances. As many different types of fuel are refined from crude oil. Ie: rubbing alcohol, butane,propane,hexane, diesel fuel gasoline, road tar as well as plastics. Hope this explains it decently.
Petroleum or Crude oil is hydrocarbons. Petroleum processing is distillation-separation different fraction of hydrocarbons from each other. Petrochemical would further extract… fine hydrocarbon from hydrocarbons and react them to the desire hydrocarbon chemical.

Petroleum = petra, Greek = rock, and oleum, Latin = oil. So we have an oil from rock. And by common usage, all substances deriving from it.
No, not actually. Crude oil is one type of petroleum. Petroleum is a common term for the liquid (crude oil), gaseous (natural gas), and viscous or solid forms (bitumen and asp…halt).
No, contrary to popular belief, petroleum jelly is in fact a jelly.
