Naphtha is produced from oil refineries and gas plants, which is a mixture of flammable liquid hydrocarbons. Naphtha is majorly used in steam cracking to produce olefins, in reforming to produce aromatics and as a feedstock for high octane gasoline.

The global market for naphtha by applications is mainly dominated by petrochemicals: benzene, toluene and xylenes (BTX). Naphtha is similarly used as a chemical solvent, paint and varnish diluents among other applications.

There are three main types of naphtha. Light naphtha is mainly used for the petrochemical industry, although it can also be utilized in gasoline blending. Medium naphtha meets the full range of applications, including gasoline blending, reforming or petrochemical uses. Heavy naphtha is majorly used for reforming or producing of gasoline components such as reformate aromatics.
