About Petroleum Coke. Petroleum Coke is a solid, carbon-rich material, derived from crude oil refining. More specifically, coke is a bottom of the barrel by-product, result of the end of the cracking process. It is usually distinct in two varieties: fluid coke and flexicoking coke. Fluid coke, or green coke, is obtained from delayed cooking processes. On the other hand, flexicoking is fine grained, with a great level of isotropy. There is also calcinated coke, which is a product of green coke, after above 1300 °C heating. Some Petroleum Coke trades may occur in the spot market, in which the commodity can be purchased for immediate delivery.

The production of Petroleum Coke grew tremendously in the middle of the twentieth century, since petcoke became intensive marketed as a petroleum product in its own right. By country, the United States and China are the largest producers worldwide, followed by South America, Canada, India, Middle East, and Western Europe. Currently, more than 70% of the produced coke is of the green type.

Petroleum Coke Handling. Petroleum Coke in bulk quantities is stored in piles. It is necessary to maintain optimal moisture content and control fugitive dust emissions during storage. This can be done by pile height and compaction control, wetting with water – by water cannons, water trucks, or sprays – and treatment with anti-dust agent.

Petroleum Coke Uses. Petroleum Coke is used mainly as fuel, especially in applications that require very high temperatures like metallurgy (cheap fuel for cement industry) or in electricity generation. It is also used as a component of electrodes.

<p><b>About Petroleum Coke.</b> The global demand for oil is a key driver of petroleum coke prices. Petroleum coke is a bottom-of-the-barrel product generated due to the carbonization of heavy residues in the refining process, and its production is directly correlated to the production of petroleum fractions. As a result, fluctuations in the global demand for oil can directly impact the price of petroleum coke.</p><p>Production costs are another important factor that can impact petroleum coke prices. The cost of extracting and refining crude oil can fluctuate based on market conditions and geopolitical factors, which can, in turn, impact the production costs of petroleum coke.</p><p>Environmental regulations can also affect petroleum coke prices. As countries around the world focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and transitioning to renewable energy sources, the demand for petroleum coke is likely to decrease over time. However, since petroleum coke is a natural by-product of the oil refining process, the supply of coke may not decline at the same rate as demand, causing prices to fall.</p><p>Overall, understanding the factors that influence petroleum coke prices is essential for businesses that rely on it as a fuel source. Having access to reliable price data from around the world can help making informed decisions about supply chain management, pricing strategies, and industrial investment opportunities.</p>
