*Mainly used for heating in Japan.
|LSA||Among the products corresponding to "Fuel oil type one"* specified by JIS K2205, those having a sulfur content of
0.1 wt% or less.
*Generally called "A fuel oil"
|HSA||Among the products corresponding to "Fuel oil type one*" specified by JIS K2205, those having a sulfur content exceeding 0.1 wt%.|
|LSC||Among the products mainly used as the base material for C fuel oil, those with low sulfur (sulfur content of 0.5 wt% or less). For example, Atmospheric residue(South East Asia crude), Vacuum residue(South East Asia crude), etc.|
|HSC||Among the products mainly used as the base material for C fuel oil, those with high sulfur (sulfur content exceeding 0.5 wt%). For example, Direct desulfurization vacuum residue, Vacuum residue(Middle East crude), Thermal cracked residue and Slurry oil, etc.|

|Unfinished Kerosene||Undesufurized kerosene.|
|Unfinished Gas Oil||Light gas oil and Hydro-cracked gas oil.|
|Unfinished AFO||Desulfurized vacuum gas oil, Gas oil from direct desulfurization unit, Light cycle oil, Catalytic dewaxed gas oil and Thermal cracked gas oil.|
|Feed Stocks||Heavy gas oil, Vacuum gas oil, Atmospheric residue(Middle East crude) and Desulfurized atmospheric residue, mainly used as FCC/RFCC feeds.|
Note:Fuel oil in Japan
Fuel oil is classified into 3 types by viscosity. (A fuel oil, B fuel oil and C fuel oil.)
Even though A fuel oil has the name "fuel oil", it's a kind of distillate product. This is used for marine diesel engines, small boilers, etc. B fuel oil had been produced in large quantities in the past, but this fuel is rarely produced nowadays.

<Definitions for figures in weekly reports>
|Crude Input||The quantity of crude oil, raw oil and fuel oil processed in atmospheric distillation unit to produce petroleum products in refineries. (excluding slop oil)|
(Products Stocks, Unfinished Oil and Feed Stocks)
|Stocks of products/unfinished oil/ feed stocks storaged in tanks of refineries and oil terminals.(including stocks being transported by product tanker, and stocks in pipelines or equipments of refineries)|
|Stocks of crude oil storaged in tanks of refineries and oil terminals.(excluding stocks on the ocean)|
|Refinery Production||The quantity of petroleum products produced in refineries. The quantity of self-consumption fuel, and the quantity converted to another products have already been deducted from figures.|
