The newly enacted requirements of desulfurization brought about a sudden change in the fuel market of the industrial gas turbine: oils became available at a price considerably below that of distillate oils. These oils present a new option for the gas turbine industry to avoid the difficulties of the lower priced residuals, without the high cost of the No. 2-GT distillate. Work performed by the author’s company to introduce these oils is presented in this paper.
