What is Premium Synthetic crude?

Premium Synthetic consists of CNRL Light Sweet Synthetic and Premium Albian Synthetic blended together at Superior. This synthetic stream is characterized by its high distillate (350 - 350F) content. The feeders that make up this stream are bottomless blends of hydrotreated naphtha, distillate, and gasoil fractions.
