One definition for residual oil saturation is focused on liquid saturated cond itions in the reservoir or aquifer when oil (or LNAPL) ceases to be recovered. For example, the Petroleum Engineering Handbook (Bradley et al., 1987) defines residual oil as "the liquid that remains in an oil reservoir at depletion". "There is going to be residual fuel used in the marine market in some shape or form," he added. At the same IPW event, Jason Breslaw, development lead on 0.5% marine fuel at BP, said new 0.5% sulfur fuel oil will be supplying over half the market in the longer term. " US Refiner and Blender Net Production of Residual Fuel Oil is at a current level of 252.00K, down from 271.00K last week and down from 485.00K one year ago. This is a change of -7.01% from last week and -48.04% from one year ago. Experience has shown that the precipitation of asphaltenes from a residual fuel oil in the form of sediment can occur during storage and handling. Such sediment can cause severe difficulties, and in extreme cases can render the fuel unfit for use. Once out of solution, it is extremely difficult to repeptize the asphaltenes into their original

Details of the supplier of the safety data sheet Apex Oil Company, Inc. Clark Oil residual fuel oil definition: A heavy fuel oil produced from the residue of the fractional distillation process. Definitions. residual fuel oil - Investment & Finance Definition. A heavy fuel oil produced from the residue of the fractional distillation process. Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) is a category of fuel oils of a tar-like consistency identified as a "worse case substance". Also known as bunker fuel or residual fuel oil, HFO is the result or remnant from the distillation and cracking process of crude oil. For this reason, HFO is contaminated with several different compounds including aromatics, sulfur and nitrogen, making emission upon combustion more Bunker fuel is the generic term given to any fuel oil used to power ship, but mostly consists of the heavy, residual oils left over after gasoline, diesel and other hydrocarbons are extracted from Residual oil definition is - fuel oil that remains after the removal of valuable distillates (such as gasoline) from petroleum and that is used especially by industry —called also resid. The oil upstream flowed along these oil threads to meet the residual oil downstream so that an oil bank was built. In the process of residual oil flowing along the oil threads, because of the cohesive force of the oil/water interfaces, it was also possible to form new oil droplets, which flowed downstream and coalesced with other oils.

Safety Data Sheet - Heavy Fuel Oil Revision Nr: 4 Issue date: 01/12/2014 Supersedes: 17/05/2012 7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities Storage : Keep in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. PRODUCT USE: Residual Fuel Oil is a complex blend of hydrocarbons derived from various refinery streams, usually residue, and can contain hydrogen sulfide and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Typical streams include atmospheric tower bottoms and vacuum tower bottoms. The composition is complex and varies with the source of crude oil.
