RBN Energy looks at alkylate, a blending component that accounts for about 12% of the US gasoline pool.
Alkylate is a valuable blending component that accounts for about 12 percent of the US gasoline pool. Alkylate is manufactured by combining elements derived from NGLs and crude oil refining and is an important link between these two hydrocarbon markets. Alkylate has critical qualities required to meet complex modern gasoline quality specifications. Today we look at the qualities and manufacture of alkylate.
US Gasoline is a complicated product that refiners blend to meet local quality and regulatory specifications using a number of components often referred to as the gasoline blending pool. Alkylate is an important gasoline blending component that has little name recognition outside refinery circles.  A number of previous RBN blogs touch on the alkylate story.

 I won't be posting any WSJ links today; nothing in the entire newspaper today was interesting enough to post. A few stories about the Heinz-Buffett/3G deal. Nothing of significance on the op-ed pages. Even page 3 of section A was pretty dismal. And so it goes. Looking forward to the weekend edition.
