Crude oil is a fossil fuel, formed millions of years ago naturally from decaying plants and animals living in ancient seas, hence, places where Crude oil are found were once sea beds. The study involves the evaluation on the production of fuels in a fractional distillation tower in order to analyze the distillation tower or column the processes involved in the production of fuels will be taken to consideration and also production rate of each of these fuels are taken with the total and partial productivity calculated to known when the company's peak production occurs, using six (6) months survey to get our result. For the six (6) months survey result in United States Dollar (USD) from March to August, the total productivity for the six (6) months are 15103USD, 18483USD, 19497USD, 21003USD, and $19903USD respectively.
