Summary: There was a drawdown in middle distillate inventories
Oil product stocks at the Middle East's key oil hub of Fujairah slipped another 2.5 per cent in the week to Monday, hitting a new 10-week low, despite a jump in middle distillate inventories.
Four fractions were obtained: light distillate (LD; < 220 [degrees]C), middle distillate (MD; 220-350 [degrees]C), heavy distillate (HD; 350-500 [degrees]C) and vacuum residue (VR; > 500 [degrees]C).
The resulting synthetic crude can be sold as a product to petroleum-crude refineries, or further refined to distillate fuels, primarily jet fuel, either in a dedicated facility or as a part of an existing petroleum-crude refinery.
Most of the rest of the production is distillate (30 per cent), jet fuel (10 per cent), petroleum coke (5 per cent), heavy fuel oil (2.5 per cent) and a host of more minor products like lubricants (1 per cent).
The beaker was installed at the output of the condensing tube to collect the distillate. The distillation temperature values were recorded for the first drop, distillation of 10, 50 and 90% of the total volume, and the final boiling point.
"Due to the combination of rapid expansion in demand and Saudi refineries higher proportion of heavy distillate output, a deficit in light and middle distillate products has developed.
