The hydrogen is used either in the hydrotreaters or the hydrocracker. Distillate hydrotreater desulfurizes distillates (such as diesel) after atmospheric distillation. Uses hydrogen to desulfurize the naphtha fraction from the crude oil distillation or other units within the refinery.
Which compound is used in petroleum refining?
Most of the paraffin compounds in naturally occurring crude oils are normal paraffins, while isoparaffins are frequently produced in refinery processes.

What are 4 products of petroleum?
Petroleum products produces gasoline, (including gasoline-based biofuel blends), diesel (including diesel-based biofuel blends), LPG, aviation fuel and other refinery products (mainly heating oil).
What is the principle of refining petroleum?
The principle which is used is that the longer the carbon chain, the higher the temperature at which the compounds will boil. The crude petroleum is heated and changed into a gas. The gases are passed through a distillation column which becomes cooler as the height increases.
