Kerosene, also known as paraffin or lamp oil, is a combustible hydrocarbon liquid that is extracted from petroleum. It is most commonly used as a fuel in aviation as well as households. Its name derives from Greek meaning wax and was also registered as a trademark by Canadian geologist as well as inventor Abraham Gesner in the year 1854, before evolving into a genericised trademark.
Kerosene is most commonly used to power jet engines of aircraft as jet fuel and also some rocket engines. It is also widely used in kitchens, like a cooking and lighting fuel. In some areas of Asia, kerosene is sometimes used as fuel in small outboard motors or even motorcycles. In order to prevent confusion between kerosene and the much more flammable and volatile gasoline, there are some jurisdictions that regulate markings or colourings for containers that are used to store or dispense kerosene.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Kerosene production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
This report provides the cost structure of LPG production by natural gas processing. In this method, the crude oil recovered from the oil wells is sent to the gas trap where it is separated into wet gas and oil.
This report provides the cost structure of gasoline production by the fractional distillation process. The fractional distillation of crude oil is done to separate components of different boiling point.
This report presents an analysis of capital and operating costs of a -based industrial plant. For those interested in economic assessments considering other plant locations, Procurement Resource offers optional analyses that complement this report.
