What is Heavy Fuel Oil Used For? - Bright Hub Engineering

As we have seen heavy fuel oil is a residue from the crude oil refining process and as such is the dregs of the process. It is used as a marine engine fuel because of its cheapness, but it does contain a lot of impurities and must be kept at a high temperature both during storage and use in ships main engines.

Marine Fuel Oil Contaminants - Bright Hub Engineering

Heavy fuel oil is a product of the refining of crude oil and is used as fuel in variety of engines and boilers both on land and in ships. It contains many environmental polluting contaminants which have been constantly regulated over the last decade or so.

The crude oil is pumped ashore by the export oil pumps via undersea pipelines to a landfall as close to the crude oil refinery as possible. The hydrocarbons have been partially refined on the production platform and is now ready for refining into the final products such as diesel oil and petroleum.

Refining Process - Heavy crude oil

The large amount of heavy residuum (26 to over 60 carbons) which is characteristic of heavy oil, however, is subjected to even more refining. Originating in the flashtower, the residuum receives more heating in a vacuum tower, where light vacuum gas oil and heavy vacuum gas oil are extracted from it.

heavy crude oil

Heavy crude oil

In 2010, the World Energy Council defined extra heavy oil as crude oil having a gravity of less than 10° and a reservoir viscosity of no more than 10,000 centipoises. When reservoir viscosity measurements are not available, extra-heavy oil is considered by the WEC to have a lower limit of 4° °API. [4]

Challenges of heavy crude processing

Creating a higher-quality, sweet synthetic crude oil with an API gravity between 30° and 40° API opens up the potential market for upgraded crude oil by an order of magnitude, because most refineries are capable of processing crude oils within this gravity range.

Marine Fuel Oil Contaminants - Bright Hub Engineering

Bright Hub Engineering. Leave a comment. Heavy fuel oil is used by ships engines and boilers as a primary fuel and is a product of crude oil refining, being the bottoms from the distilling column. It therefore contains numerous contaminants and these manifest themselves in the combustion gases, now subjected to strict regulations.

Heavy fuel oil used in marine main diesel engines is a residue from crude oil refining. Because of the properties of heavy fuel oil it is required be kept at a high storage temperature and for usage. Despite this heavy fuel combustion products remain high in NOx, Sox, and CO2 in the exhaust gases.

Heavy crude oil

Heavy crude oil is closely related to natural bitumen from oil sands. Petroleum geologists categorize bitumen from oil sands as ‘extra-heavy oil’ due to its density of less than 10° °API. Bitumen is the heaviest, thickest form of petroleum.
