Abstract: The large and complex petroleum industry is essential for the economy nowadays. It is difficult for a country to run smoothly without petroleum. Petroleum is the raw material that will ultimately provide power for our vehicles, roads paving, and plastics supply for consumer usage, etc. When petroleum is extracted from underground, it is called crude oil, which is a complex mixture with thousands of compounds that formed from plants and animals millions of years ago. Crude oil is sent to the fractional distillation refinery to process further. Fractional distillation, which involves separating crude oil into many fractions based on their boiling points differences, can provide gasoline, diesel fuel, heating oil, jet fuel, petroleum feedstocks, waxes, lubricating oils, asphalt and other products.Summary: Crude oil is a highly variant natural resource. Many types of crude oil are
produced around the world. The market value of an individual crude
stream reflects its quality characteristics. Detailed crude oil assay quality
test data helps place a commercial value on crude oil feedstocks during
commercial transactions, and helps determine optimal feedstock choices for refineries.
