With regulations making a general move towards low-sulfur grades, our fuel oil business is focused on physical trading of ultra-low-sulfur diesel. We can offer our clients automotive diesel fuel, which is covered in the Emirates Conformity Assessment System (ECAS) with a maximum of 10 ppm of sulfur.
Lubricants are a blend of base oils and, depending on their use, additives. The proportion of base oils in the finished product is usually between 70% and 95%. Additives have multiple functions, for example to prevent foam formation, to clean, or improve the viscosity index.
Superior grade product used for heating, lighting, and refrigeration applications. Also used in Carbon dioxide plants and other industrial applications. Burns easily and steadily producing uniform heat and does not develop objectionable odors.
Chemicals derived from petroleum or natural gas and oil – petrochemicals – are an essential part of the chemical industry today. Our petrochemicals trading operations cover both petrochemical groups, i.e. olefins (including ethylene and propylene) and aromatics (including benzene, toluene and xylene).
The term Marine Gasoil (MGO) describes marine fuels that are exclusively consist of distillates. Distillates are all those components of crude oil that evaporate in fractional distillation and are then condensed from the gas phase into liquid fractions. Unlike Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO), Marine Gasoil does not have to be heated during storage.
The term Marine Diesel Oil (MDO) describes marine fuels that are composed of various blends of distillates and heavy fuel oil. The different blending ratios of marine diesel oil can be controlled directly by processes in the refinery or by blending ready-made marine fuels. Marine diesel is like land diesel fuel but has a higher density.
