Also known as: light gasoil, distillate, AGO, LAGO, HAGO
Atmospheric gasoil is a distillation cut derived from an atmospheric distillation unit, and it is primarily made up of molecules with 14 to 20 carbon atoms. The AGO distillation has a boiling range between 420 and 650F (215-343C)
The primary use of atmospheric gasoil is as a blendstock to make diesel or heating oil. However, it must typically go through a distillate hydrotreater first to remove sulfur. Diesel is more typically blended from the lighter end of AGO, called light atmospheric gasoil or LAGO.
