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.

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.
No because soyabean oil is derived from soyabeans while crude oil is derived from fossil fuels.
Bio-pesticides are derived as residual bi-products after fermentation of the jatropha crude oil for biodiesel production
It is derived from crude oil.
No, crude oil is a complex mixture of hydrocarbons as they are found in the earth. Gasoline is one of the many products derived from crude oil through catalytic cracking, distillation and so on. It contains mostly heptane and octane.
yes using phenol, a compound that is derived from crude oil.
Crude oil is not directly used in products, its fractions and derivatives of those fractions are.
Crude oil is transported to oil refineries which separate and react it into different products.
Many plastics are derived from crude oil.
A crude oil refinery is a factory. The factory takes the crude oil, and turns it into useful products, like gasoline.
Because Australian crude is not suitable for some of the products that come from crude oil.
"Petroleum" products are distilled from crude oil, so what comes out of the ground is crude oil.
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.
Yes, well sort of. Petroleum jelly is derived from oil, as you can read about in the attached link. Lipstick is made of many products that are derived from plants. Carnuba wax comes from palms. See links.
Crude oil and seafood.
It will eventually run out. Burning products from crude oil increases pollution and the greenhouse effect.
Crude oil and seafood.
It can cause pollution
Eventually, crude oil will run out. Other sources will need to be discovered to replace crude oil and the many products produced.
Crude oil is processed to obtain petroleum products.
It varies alot. The minimum value is zero- as some crude oil are refined into other products. So, let's assume this is a crude that is economical to refine into gasoline. In this case , it can be as low as 2 gallons or as high as 23 gallons. (1 bbl = 42 gallons) Expressed as a percentage of the crude oil, this is 5 to 55%. (See attached links). The crude oil not refined as gasoline will be refined for other products. Common refined products from crude oil are provided in the related link, and will differ depending on the properties of the crude oil. It's very interesting that after refining, there will be more gallons of produced products than the original barrel of crude oil.
Oil, cotton, Barley, Cattle, Crude Asphalt, Crude Oil, Fruit, Goats, not necessarily in that order.
After crude oil is removed from the ground, it is sent to a refinery by pipeline, ship, or barge. At a refinery, different parts of the crude oil are separated into usable petroleum products.
Crude Oil, and petrochemical products.
Crude oil is actually made up of many different products with different boiling points. Fractional distillation separates the products from one another.
