Formation and Produced Water Analysis

Formation and produced water composition analysis.

Intertek formation and produced waters testing laboratories provide help clients understand the chemistry of reservoir formation water, produced water, and any potential impact on the environment.

Intertek produced and formation water analytical testing services include 10 ion compositional analysis to determine tendency for scaling and corrosion.

Detailed trace metals analysis helps to establish the degree of water toxicity before discharge into the environment. Toxicity evaluation is provided for drill cuttings and drilling mud samples.

The produced water labs provide extensive testing for hydrocarbon content, including BTEX evaluations. Produced water naturally contains some oil and soluble oil products. Oil field additives and other naturally occuring substances and elements may be present in the produced waters.
