What are Crude Oil and Natural Gas?
Natural Gas is a mixture of lighter hydrocarbons like methane , ethane propane etc, it is a gas or vapour that is stored in reservoirs below the ground.Classification of Crude OilBased on API Gravity Crude Oil can be classified as :
Cuts, Fractions and Carbon Numbers, Crude oil is a mixture of over 500 components. It has a boiling range of around 40-600 C. Each product from Crude oil is also mixture of several components (hydrocarbons). The hydrocarbons range from C1 to C65 in terms of carbon numbers. Product of a particular boiling range taken out of crude is defined as cut or fractions. The products are identified as cuts from crude of certain boiling ranges and carbon numbers.
