AutoGas (LPG) is a clean, high octane, abundant and eco-friendly fuel.It is obtained from natural gas through fractionation and from crudeoil through refining.It is a mixture of petroleum gases like propane and butane.The higher energy content in this fuel results in a 10% reduction ofCO2 emission as compared to MS.
IndianOil has setup 335 Auto LPG Dispensing Stations (ALDS)covering 182 cities across India.AutoGas impacts greenhouse emissions less than any other fossil fuelwhen measured through the total fuel cycle.Conversion of petrol to AutoGas helps substantially reduce airpollution caused by vehicular emissions.The saving on account of conversion to AutoGas in comparison topetrol is about 35-40% which is a enough reason for a consumer toconvert his vehicle to AutoGas.
Jet fuel is a colorless, combustible, straight-run petroleum distillateliquid.Its principal uses are as jet engine fuel.The most common jet fuel worldwide is a kerosene-based fuelclassified as JET A-1.

Crude oilCrude oil - as petroleum directly out of the ground is called - is aremarkably varied substance, both in its use and composition.Crude oil is formed from the preserved remains of prehistoriczooplankton and algae, which have been settled to the sea (or lake)bottom in large quantities under anoxic conditions.It was formed over millions of years from the remains of tiny aquaticplants and animals that lived in ancient seas due to compression andheating of ancient organic materials over geological time.The oldest oil-bearing rocks date back to more than 600 million years,the youngest being as old as about 1 million years.
Crude oil is classified by the location of its origin (e.g. West TexasIntermediate, WT, Brent, Dubai or Minas) and often by its relativeweight or viscosity.Crude oil from an area in which the crude oils molecularcharacteristics have been determined and the oil has been classified areused as pricing references throughout the world.These references are known as Crude oil benchmarks.After considering availability of indigenous crude oil, balance crude oilis required to be imported. Indian Oil sources its crude oil requirementfrom Far East, Gulf region, Mediterranean, West Africa and LatinAmerican sources.
Automotive gasoline and gasoline-oxygenate blends are used ininternal combustion spark-ignition engines.These spark ignition engine fuels are primarily used for passengercars.They are also used in off-highway utility vans, farm machinery and inother spark ignition engines employed in a variety of serviceapplications.XTRAPREMIUM petrol is a much sought-after fuel among discerningmotorists who are in many ways emotionally attached to their wheels. Indian Oils XTRAPREMIUM petrol is the largest selling branded petrolin India
Petroleum derived diesel (called as petrodiesel) is a mixture of straightrun product with varying amount of selected cracked distillates and iscomposed of saturated hydrocarbons and aromatic hydrocarbons.Diesel is used in diesel engines, a type of internal combustion engine.Rudolf Diesel originally designed the diesel engine to use coal dust asa fuel, but oil proved more effective.Indian Oils XTRAMILE Super Diesel, the leader in the branded dieselsegment, is blended with world-class multi-functional fuel additives.
Indane is today one of the largest packed-LPG brands in the world andhas been conferred the coveted ‘Consumer Superbrand’ status by theSuperbrands Council of India.Having launched LPG marketing in the mid-60s, Indian Oil has beencredited with bringing about a ‘kitchen revolution’ It has led to a substantial improvement in the health of women,especially in rural areas by replacing smoky and unhealthy chulha. the Indane network delivers 1.2 million cylinders a day to thedoorsteps of over 53 million households, making Indian Oil the secondlargest marketer of LPG globally, after SHV Gas of The Netherlands.

PetrochemicalsIndia is amongst the fastest growing petrochemicals markets in theworld.The Corporation is envisaging an investment of Rs 30,000 crore in thepetrochemicals business in the next few years.These projects will utilise product streams from the existing refineriesof IndianOil, thereby achieving better exploitation of the hydrocarbonvalue chain.In order to penetrate the petrochemicals market effectively, aseparate Strategic Business Unit (SBU) has been created in IndianOil formarketing of petrochemicals.
Beginning with a low-investment, high-value projects such as MethylTertiary Butyl Ether (MTBE) and Butene-1 at Gujarat Refinery, Vadodara,IndianOil has set up a world-scale Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB) plant atGujarat Refinery and an integrated Paraxylene/Purified TerephthalicAcid (PX/PTA) plant at Panipat.A Naphtha Cracker complex with downstream polymer units is also inoperation at Panipat.
Kerosenes are distillate fractions of crude oil in the boiling range of150-250 C.They are treated mainly for reducing aromatic content to increasetheir smoke point (height of a smokeless flame) and hydrofining toreduce sulphur content and to improve odour, colour & burningqualities (char value).
Special ProductsOther than the regular petroleum products like light distillates, middledistillates, heavier products like Furnace Oil, Bitumen, etc., IndianOilrefineries also manufacture petroleum products for specificapplications.These specific applications could be feed stock for chemical industry,raw material for specific industries and solid fuels.The petroleum products, produced for specific applications are called,Petrochemicals and Specialties (P&S) Products.Every petroleum refinery is not designed to produce P&S products butIndianOils refineries have been planned to make a large portfolio ofP&S products.
