What products are derived from crude oil?
In Fossil Fuels
Crude oil is feedstock for just about everything under the sun. When crude oil is refined, its various chemical parts are separated and some become gasoline, some lubricants, some asphalt, and others the raw materials for plastics and rubber and many more things. Here are some examples of what can be obtained from petroleum (crude oil, natural gas, and/or viscous or solid forms): Fuels - like gasoline, diesel, propane (many people use propane to heat their homes), heating oil Heavy bottoms - like asphalt, bitumen, tar Petrochemicals - used as a feedstock for many everyday products: * plastic gadgets, tools, bags, toys * candles * clothing (polyester, nylon) * hand lotions * petroleum jelly * perfume * dishwashing liquids * ink * bubble gums * car tires * ammonia * heart valves * and many more ---- Crude oil is refined and used to make all these products: * Ethane and other short-chain alkanes which are used as fuel * Diesel * Fuel oils * Petrol * Jet fuel * Kerosene * Liquid petroleum gas (LPG) * Natural gas * Alkenes (olefins) which can be manufactured into plastics or other compounds * Lubricants (produces light machine oils, motor oils, and greases, adding viscosity stabilizers as required). * Wax, used in the packaging of frozen foods, among others. * Sulfur or Sulfuric acid. These are a useful industrial materials. Sulfuric acid is usually prepared as the acid precursor oleum, a byproduct of sulfur removal from fuels. * Bulk tar. * Asphalt * Petroleum coke, used in speciality carbon products or as solid fuel. * Paraffin wax * Aromatic petrochemicals to be used as precursors in other chemical production.

crude oil is a naturally occurring, flammable liquid consisting of a complex mixture of hydrocarbons of various molecular weights, and other organic compounds, that are found in geologic formations beneath the earth's surface. Oil and gas are chemicals made from molecules containing just carbon a…nd hydrogen. All living things are made of complex molecules of long strings of carbon atoms. Connected to these carbon atoms are others such as hydrogen and oxygen. A simple molecule, called methane (CH 4 ), is the main component of natural gas. Crude oil (oil obtained from the ground) is a sticky, gooey black stuff. It contains many different molecules, but all are made of carbon and hydrogen atoms. (MORE)
Every 42-gallon (159-liter) barrel of oil can be refined into . 19.4 gallons (73 liters) of gas, . 10.5 gallons (40 liters) of diesel, and . 4.1 gallons (16 liters) of jet fuel, not to mention lots of other marketable stuff. . Every 42-US-gallon barrel of crude provides a little more than… 44 gallons of petroleum products. This is gained due to processing of crude. From one barrel we get (in gallons): . 7.27 gallons (27.5 liters): Other products (feedstocks for petrochemical plants, asphalt, bitumen, tar, etc.) . 1.72 gallons (6.5 liters): Liquefied Petroleum Gases (LPG) . 3.82 gallons (14.5 liters): Jet Fuel . 1.76 gallons (6.6 liters): Heavy Fuel Oil (Residual) . 1.75 gallons (6.6 liters): Other Distillates (Heating Oil) . 9.21 gallons (35 liters): Diesel . 19.15 gallons (72.5 liters): Gasoline From petrochemical feedstocks many everyday-life products are then obtained. Some examples are: . fertilizers for agriculture . plastic toys and gadgets (bags, computer cases, etc.) . bubble gums . car tires . perfumes . petroleum jelly . ammonia . washing liquids If I know correctly then, 1 Oil barrel = 42 US gallons which in turn = 158.9873 litres, which is approximately 159 litres. Answer On average 20 gallons of gas per barrel. See the California web site: www.energy.ca.gov/gasoline/what's in a barrel oil (MORE)
Oil was formed from the remains of animals and plants (diatoms) that lived millions of years ago in a marine (water) environment before the dinosaurs. Over millions of years, the remains of these animals and plants were covered by layers of sand and silt. Heat and pressure from these layers helped t…he remains turn into what we today call crude oil . The word "petroleum" means "rock oil" or "oil from the earth." (MORE)
Crude oil is a mixture of short to long chain hydrocarbons. It has to be separated into many different fractions to become usable. It may also contain mineral impurities due to it being underground
boiling point of crude oil is depending on the main component in the crude oil itself, heavy crude for example has a higher boiling point from light crude.
You can use hydrogen instead as long as it was teste so you couldn't blow up your car after. Also, you could use water as it's an endless resource because it's all around us and it can be used to very good use. You could use eletric but oil is used for more stuff than we think like oil can be used i…n vasoline and to make kerosene (fuel for jets/airplanes) so it would be very hard to replace it unless we don't save fossil fuels and we need to start to develop new ways to use alternative use to fuel.

The chemical elements are: Carbon 83-87 percent, Hydrogen 10-14 percent, Nitrogen 0.1-2 percent, Oxygen 0.1-1.5 percent, sulfur 0.5-6 percent, metals less than 0.1 percent. There is some variation in oil from different fields. Petroleum is a mixture of a very large number of different hydrocarbon…s. The alkanes are saturated hydrocarbons. From pentane (C5H12) to octane (C8H18) are used for gasoline(petrol) whilst the ones from nonane (C9H20) to hexadecane (C16H34) are used for kerosene and diesel fuel, from hexadecane up for heavy fuel oil and lubricating oil. There are also cycloalkanes and aromatic hydrocarbons. These different molecules are separated at the refinery by fractional distillation. See the Wikipedia entry for Petroleum for more information..

Crude oil is oil got from directly extracting process. you can use an oil extracting machine such as screw oil press or hydraulic oil press which are common oil extracting machines used for this.
They rank #4 behind Texas, Alaska, and California respectively. However, federal offshore production is technically #1 with about 500mil barrels of oil produced per year.
From each 42-gallon barrel of crude oil, about 19.6 gallons of gasoline and 9.2 gallons of diesel fuel are refined.
It is knowen as Crude oil before it has been refined... Once it's been refined it can then be called gasoline, petrol, diesel and just "Oil"

The different petroleum products are- . Fuel Gas . Naphtha . Light Kerosene . Heavy Kerosene . Light Gas Oil . Heavy Gas Oil . Gasoline . Diesel . Lubricating Oil . Motor Spirit . Light Vacuum Gas Oil . Heavy Vacuum Gas Oil . Vacuum Diesel . Residue . Tar
they are used to make fuels like petroleum and diesel fuel,jet fuel,natural gas.. and then they are used to make plastics and asphalt.
No because soyabean oil is derived from soyabeans while crude oil is derived from fossil fuels.
Crude oil is separated in a separation column. Separation columns are used to heat the crude then the different hydrocarbons separate as the lighter ones float up and the denser ones fall to the bottom. LPG gas floats to the top, bitumen and paraffin wax sink to the bottom with diesel, kerosene, pet…rol and others in the middle. The height range which contains each different product is calculated based on the percentage of each product in the crude. This allows the plant to choose where to place the pipes to takes each individual product out of the separation for further refinement. For a more detailed explanation search for separation tower (MORE)
Louisianna beaches (sorry) ancient animal remains, warmed, pressurised, migrate through rocks until trapped, then drill for crude oil. Refine and split into different sizes of oil molecule for oil products.
crude oil is a wonderful chemical.you can get a variety of products and substrates which are all useful in industry.the main products and substrates are: petrol(gasoline),diesel,naphta,petrol gas(lpg),aviation turbine fuel,lubricants,petroleum jelly,asaphalt,tar and uncondensed gases.

refinery. i think. i dont know, i found it somewhere, but if you wanna make sure, and you are probably doing your science worksheet like me, you might want to look somewhere else. just sayin. hey, do i talk a lot? i know im not talking, im typing, but still?
Yes mineral oil is derived from crude oil.. No. Mineral oil is another term for vegetable oil, which is derived from the natural oils of plants, not crude.
There are a lot of products made from oil. There is gasoline for out cars, fuel for jet planes. They also make motor oil out of crude oil.
By plastic, I believe you meant addition polymers. First of all, crude oil is an incredibly complex mixture of hydrocarbons. When these hydrocarbons are separated using fractional distillation, different alkanes are obtained. When these long-chain alkanes are cracked(process of breaking down the alk…anes into smaller hydrocarbons), alkenes (unsaturated hydrocarbons with one more double-bonds) are generally obtained in significant quantities. When these alkenes are put together at around 250 degrees Celsius and at a high pressure of around 2000 atmospheres, the respective addition polymer is formed. (MORE)
Products made from crude oil are called petrochemicals and include hundreds of products. You may also do a seach under petrochemicals and obtain more information. See related link.
Crude oil consists almost entirely of carbon-based molecules. Anything with carbon in usually considered organic.
Crude oil is not directly used in products, its fractions and derivatives of those fractions are.
You get crude oil from the ground. crude oil is a naturally occurring, flammable liquid consisting of a complex mixture of hydrocarbons of various molecular weights, and other organic compounds, that are found in geologic formations beneath the earth's surface. Crude oil can be found in the Middle …East or to be more precise in the earths rock formation. The Middle East produce more than 50 percent of the worlds crude oil supply. crude oil can be found in the middle-east curry (MORE)
Crude oil is transported to oil refineries which separate and react it into different products.
in short, crtstallisation is the method that is used to purify the substance.crude product is an impure substance.so,if we want to purify a substance then we have to use crystallisation process.therefore there is a need to crystallise a crude product.
The crude oil we use today was formed millions of years ago but crude oil is still being formed today. More crude oil is formed every time an animal or plant in the sea dies and is squashed by layers of other dead marine life (that turns into rock)over the top. This takes a long time.
20,000 to 40,000 barrels of crude oil is spilling in the Gulf of Mexico every day.
Lots of countries have crude oil reserves. Russia, Saudi Arabia, the US, and Iran have the most crude oil reserves.
Some of it is used to make plastic bags that you use in the grocery store, some is used to make gasoline for a car, or airplane fuel, asphalt, roofing shingles, crayons, carpeting, floor wax, paint, household detergent, footballs and soccer balls, furniture and cabinet covering, turf, dish soap, ink…, i could go on (MORE)
Crude oil IS oil so you don't separate oil from it. You do refinecrude oil, separateing parts of it that are used for a variety ofpurposes. This is usually done by fractional distillation. You heatthe crude oil so that the parts with higher boiling points becomevapors, the vapors are taken to conden…sers at differenttemperatures so materials with different boiling points arecondensed into different channels and moved for furhter processing. Portions that do not convert to vapor have very high boiling pointsand generally are the larger molecules. These "bottoms" hare brokeninto lighter chemicals in fractionation columns. (MORE)
the purpose of recrystallization of the crude oil product.is to remove the impurities from the oil inorder not to clog some unwanted product
Crude products are impure and have many impurities in it . so , there is a need to crystallize the crude product.
Crude oil is a type of pure oil that is brought up to our surface by oil wells. Most of the places that we obtain oil is from the Middle East(Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia). You can probably buy containers of crude oil on craigslist or on eBay but I don't understand what you would use it for......
it is made out of gasoline and umm yah gasoline for cars umm fuel for jets another things of motors so yah pretty much anything that has to do with like gas ha yah
Heavy crude is less in demand than light crude, because it needs more expensive refining to make it usable. Since it is less in demand, it is cheaper to buy.
Crude oil is simply oil that comes from the Earth. We have to refine it, a distillation process, in order to make it efficiently useful for burning. There are several degrees of refinement. At the bottom, are things like #6 oil; in the middle, are things like #2 oil and diesel; and at the top, are t…hings like gasoline. (MORE)
Dynamite is not produced from toluene. It is nitroglycerine stabilized in an absorbent material like clay.
To get lots of different oils from the main crude oil you must put it into a fractional distilaltion chamber.
Crude oil contains mixture of various types of hydrocarbons. Thehydrocarbons are separated by fractional distillation. Differenthydrocarbons have different boiling points and therefore aftercrude oil is heated, shorter chains of hydrocarbons which havelower boiling point will become gas and can be e…asily separated oneby one from hydrocarbons with shorter chains to longer chains. Thebrief products are Petroleum Gas, Gasoline, Kerosone, Heating Oil,Lubricating Oil and Bitumen in order of increasing molecular size. (MORE)
One of the first commercially viable products refined from crude was Kerosene, which was the "hurricane lamp" fuel of the later 1800's.
you seperate the general use of the phahonstinaliry substance to cause republication to the sint manicuriing the taste to the fuel. By Robbie tate
There is jet fuel, asphalt, petroleum gas, kerosene, heating oil, and lubricating oil. These are all set at different levels of the fractional distillation tower that is used to separate all these products from its original state as crude oil. Then they are tubed off to where they need to go.
Dozens of primary products from natural gas through asphalt. Some are: . natural gas . solvents . gasoline . diesel oil . kerosene/jet fuel . lubricating oils . home heating oil . vaseline . paraffin . axel grease . bunker grade fuel oil . asphalt . etc. There are also thousands …of secondary products from the ubiquitous plastics to medicines to hydrogen gas. Sometimes crude oil also contains helium gas, which separates in the natural gas fraction and must be extracted in another step. (MORE)
Most are- but bioplastics exist. Very interesting development as we won't have oil forever. See link.
