Bonny Light oil is a high grade of Nigerian crude oil with high API gravity (low specific gravity), produced in the Niger Delta basin and named after the prolific region around the city of Bonny. The very low sulfur content of Bonny Light crude makes it a highly desired grade for its low corrosiveness to refinery infrastructure and the lower environmental impact of its by- products in refinery effluent. Other grades of Nigerian crude oil we market are Qua Iboe crude oil, Brass River crude oil, and Forcados crude oil. The Bonny Light is in high demand specifically by American and European refineries.
D2 is a refinery abbreviation for Automotive Gasoil. It is the second distillate from the crude, and can be used without reformers and additives. So, the first engines used D2 as fuel – before petrol cars as we know them today was invented. That is because the engine invented by a German called Diesel, requires no spark plugs. The diesel engine will ignite and combust when the pressure increases so that the heated "plug" makes it explode. Here we get the name "Diesel" – since the same principles are used in diesel engines today. Automotive diesel that you fill has additives that the refinery will add to make the engine more efficient.
Jp54 is an abbreviation for "Jet Propulsion, A1, Colonial Grade 54′′ During the refining process only 15% of the crude oil is made up of JP54. Developed by JP Morgan, Colonial grade JP54 was replaced by AVGAS or known as AVGAS100LL, it's the number one low sulfer content kerosene used worldwide. It's gasoline JP54 powers gas turbines aircraft engines. Jet A and A- 1 have specifications that can be used in fuel worldwide. Jet B is used in cold weather elements. Commonly a number of different mixtures make up jet fuel and this is relate to flashpoints and how the carbon numbers are distributed.
Mazut is a heavy, low quality fuel oil, used in generating plants and similar applications. In the United States and Western Europe Mazut is blended or broken down with the end product being diesel. Mazut may be used for heating houses in former Russia and in countries of Far East that do not have the facilities to blend or break it down into more traditional and efficient petro-chemicals. In the west, furnaces that burn Mazut are commonly called "waste oil" heaters. Major buyers for Mazut are trading companies and end users in Asia and Europe. Contact us today as we are able to source and sell Mazut on a monthly contract.
