HEAVY/LIGHT HYDROCARBON is a petroleum product and Arena Petro Gas is in position to supply and export it directly from Bouali Sina Petrochemical through its trading services according to the following specification and technical properties.
In addition, a heavy/light hydrocarbon petroleum product is a type of crude oil that has a specific gravity and viscosity that falls between heavy and light grades. It is also known as intermediate oil and has an API gravity of 14 to 22. Heavy/light hydrocarbon petroleum products are less viscous and dense than heavy oil, but more viscous and denser than light oil. They have a higher proportion of long carbon-plus-hydrogen molecule chains than light oil, but a lower proportion than heavy oil.
Heavy/light hydrocarbon petroleum products have various uses depending on their characteristics and the configuration of the refineries that process them. They can be refined to produce transportation fuels, such as gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, and propane, as well as petrochemicals, such as plastics, synthetic rubber, solvents, and lubricants. They can also provide feedstock for upgrading to synthetic crude oil, which is a semi-refined product that has a higher API gravity and lower sulphur content than heavy oil.
One of the industries that uses heavy/light hydrocarbon petroleum products is the Bouali Sina Petrochemical Company in Iran. This company produces ethylene, propylene, polyethylene, and other petrochemicals from heavy/light hydrocarbon petroleum products.
