    “Russian Oil,” originally made from the straw colored crude oil produced in the Surakhany district of Russia and first introduced abroad in 1913 for its therapeutic value in the treatment of constipation, was the grandfather of the white oils of today. Within the subsequent time span, many new processes and process improvements have been made to produce these unique and valuable petroleum products. At the same time, there has been an increasing demand by both government and industry for more stringent purity requirements and special properties for use in new applications.
