При этом известно, что поступающие к потребителю мазуты обводняются при использовании острого пара в операциях разгрузки (зачистки) цистерн, а также в хранилищах из-за течей из паровых подогревателей

the fuel oil becomes mixed with water

This is the sense, IMO, of this expression.

The addition of water here is not a desirable or an intended outcome. In fact, it is a contamination: the fuel oil becomes contaiminated with water.
