Dow Aromatics fuel oil blending component products are mixtures of (mainly unsaturated) C9 to C15 components. They originate from the high temperature cracking of petroleum fractions and are separated out of pyrolysis gasoline (pygas) by distillation during the production of benzene.

Applications
The main application of Freeport Fuel Oil is to be blended into fuel oils such as bunker fuels and fluxants.

Alternatively, Freeport Fuel Oil could be used as a source for dicyclopentadiene for a variety of (resin-) applications, as well as a source for naphthalene or mixtures of naphthalene and methylnaphthalene for concrete plasticizers, phthalic anhydride and insecticides.
