A liquid hydrocarbon. (see "Crude Oil")
a greasy, combustible, organic substance obtained from animal, vegetable, or mineral sources; oils are liquid at ordinary temperatures and soluble in certain organic solvents such as ether, but not in water. (see fat)
A substance that lubricates and cools the moving parts of the engine and reduces the formation of rust and corrosion. It contains additives which fights the corrosion of bearings, keeps small particles in suspension, reduces engine wear, and reduces oxidization, minimizes carbon, lacquer, and gum formation. Oil comes in varying viscosity weights suitable for efficient operation in cold and hot weather and for engines in varying states of wear.

The substance used to lubricate and cool an engine's moving parts and reduce rust and corrosion.
Crude petroleum and other hydrocarbons produced at the wellhead in liquid form
One of three kinds of substances: (1) mineral oils, such as crude oil from petroleum, which are mixtures of hydrocarbons; (2) animal and vegetable oils, such as corn oil, which are mixtures of triglycerides; and (3) essential oils or perfumes from plants.
flammable substance, usually soluble in water, and composed chiefly of carbon and hydrogen. Oils may be solids (fats and waxes) or liquids. The three main types are: essential oils, obtained from plants; fixed oils, obtained from animals and plants; and mineral oils, obtained chiefly from the refining of petroleum.
a slippery or viscous liquid or liquefiable substance not miscible with water
any of a group of liquid edible fats that are obtained from plants
a fat in liquid form
a mixture of hydrocarbons formed by the deposition of dead plant, animal, and marine microorganism matter in or near marine sedentary basins.
A fossil fuel in liquid form that is obtained through wells drilled deep in the earth.
A substance extracted from soybean composed primarily of triglycerides of fatty acids. It is a liquid at room temperatures.
A greasy liquid of vegetable, animal, mineral or synthetic origin.
Oil (sometimes called petroleum) is formed from the decayed remains of animals and plants. Under the influence of heat and pressure, the decayed matter breaks down first into liquids and into gases. Both the liquid (petroleum) and gas phases (natural gas) collect in pools under the earth's surface. After a drilling and pumping process to extract it, oil is refined and turned into a variety of petroleum-based products.
Oil is a stubborn soil that is typically petroleum or vegetable based. Oils can be carried and transferred into restrooms on human hands, footwear or clothes.
Contains valuable hydrocarbons, oxygen and other impurities. A refinery takes the crude oil and processes it into a variety of hydrocarbon categories, including fuels (such as gasoline) and petrochemicals (i.e. chemicals derived from petroleum).
unrefined liquid petroleum.
A thick, flammable, yellow-to-black mixture of gaseous, liquid, and solid hydrocarbons that occurs naturally beneath the surface. It can be separated into component parts that include natural gas, gasoline, naphtha, kerosene, and jet engine fuel. Oil is a non-renewable resource, as it cannot be replenished within a short time.
crude oil and refined petroleum products (motor oils, fuels, lubricants, etc.), as well as vegetable oils, animal fats, and other non-petroleum oils.
In food processing a natural or processed edible fat which is normally liquid under existing climatic or storage conditions.
A mixture of hydrocarbons usually existing in the liquid state in natural underground pools or reservoirs. Gas is often found in association with oil. Overhead vs. Underground Electric Service: In most instances, underground service is considerably more expensive than overhead. In Florida, the established standard is overhead service, and the utilities regulated by the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) have their set prices based on the cost to serve with overhead facilities. Customers can and do request underground service, but must pay the cost difference between overhead and underground service. There are places where overhead service is not practical, such as downtown areas where buildings are built right up to the sidewalk. In such locations, underground is the standard and there is no cost differential paid by customers in that area. Underground service is generally more reliable than overhead, but maintenance is more difficult and costly. Regardless of whether the lines are constructed overhead or underground, they are built in compliance with all applicable safety rules and regulations.
Applied after pickling or temper rolling to assist customer handling by minimizing inter-wrap gouging, improve lubricity and provide a more rust resistant product.
Crude oil, condensate and natural gas liquids.
Liquid triester of glycerol and unsaturated fatty acids.
A gas resulting from the thermal decomposition of petroleum oils, composed mainly of volatile hydrocarbons and hydrogen.
A general term from a water-insoluble viscous liquid
A lubricant made from crude oil used for lubrication between moving parts and for cooling.
A slippery and viscous liquid that is not miscible with water. Oil is often used in conjunction with hydraulic systems because it cannot be compressed.
Oil, a liquid fossil fuel, is used in enormous quantities worldwide. Oil contains carbon, nitrogen, sulfur, mercury, lead, and arsenic, all of which are emitted when oil is burned to produce energy. Advancements have been made in producing cleaner-burning oil; however, its emissions are still significant. Oil is a nonrenewable resource, like coal and natural gas, and oil spills have caused severe damage to natural environments.
Basically a liquid form of hash, purified resin from hash or marijuana.
Oil of any kind or in any form, including petroleum, fuel oil, sludge, oil refuse, and oil mixed with wastes other than dredged spoil, but does not include any substance which is specifically listed or designated as a hazardous substance under subparagraphs (A) through (F) of Section 101(14) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act ( CERCLA) and which is subject to the provisions of that Act. The Coast Guard's definition of oil under OPA as well as a listing of OPA oils is available through the Vessel Response Plan Requirements FAQs.

A mixture of liquid hydrocarbons of different molecular weights.
Pure vegetable oil and olive oil are used in baking. Olive oil is used in bread making.
The esters of fatty acids and glycerol that are normally liquid at room temperature. Straight Vegetable Oil is used in Biodiesel production the by-product can be used as a fertilizer.
A viscous liquid or liquefiable substance not soluble in water. Oils are generally flammable and slippery.
The raw herb is either steeped in extra virgin olive oil for a period of a month or heated in oil, and then the herb is removed. . If you are mixing in oils, almond, grape, sesame, or other very pure vegetable oils are best to use. Use extreme caution in heating oils, they do not have the same boiling point as water and are often flammable, bursting into fire or smoking badly when too hot. It is best to heat oils in a double pot or in a larger pan of water, keeping the oil temperature to a safe level.
When relating to a liquid-filled transformer, refers to mineral oil.
General term for a water-insoluble viscous liquid.
This is a smooth, greasy feeling liquid. Oils are classified according to their origin as: vegetable, animal or mineral. Moreover, oils are fixed or fatty and volatile or essential, according to their behavior upon being heated.
