Oil

When people hear the term “petrochemical,” they often think of plastics or some other complex product derived from oil. Either that, or they think of petroleum-based solvents like those used in paints and coatings. In the strictest scientific sense, petrochemicals are a set of very specific chemical compounds, which can be made from oil, natural gas, coal or other sources. The vast majority of petrochemicals, however, are derived from oil or natural gas. Oil and natural gas are used as feedstocks (i.e., the main raw material used in the manufacture of a product) to make approximately 99% of U.S. petrochemicals.
