  • You have already studied the separation of crude oil into its 
    components by fractional distillation. This method of separation is 
    dependant on the different boiling points of the various fractions. 
    But this is only the first stage in petroleum refining. To maximise the 
    economics of the process, the production of the most valuable 
    fraction needs to be enhanced. Obviously demand and income from 
    petrol (gasoline) is very high and so the refinery conditions are geared 
    to maximise the production of this fraction.
