Geochemical laboratory testing, supporting oil and gas exploration and production.

Intertek oil and gas geochemistry laboratories provide Total Quality Assurance geochemical testing and analytical capabilities for clients on a global basis.

Geochemical laboratory analysis:

  • High Resolution Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GCMS-Biomarkers). Used for source typing, thermal maturity, oil-source correlation, Source rock dating from C26 Steranes.
  • 13C Stable Isotopic Analysis (DEL 13C) . Oil-oil and oil-source rock correlation.
  • 13C Stable Isotopic Analysis of Gases by (GC-IRMS). Gas characterisation and reservoir compartmentation.
  • Gas Chromatography (GC). Oil and extract characterisation.
  • High Temperature Gas Chromatography. Wax characterisation C14 to C80+.
  • High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)
  • Pyrolysis - Gas Chromatography (PGC). Oil to gas generation potential.
  • Pyrolysis - "Rock Eval" . Petroleum potential.
  • Elemental Analysis (TOC and S%). Source rock richness.
  • Vitrinite Reflectance. Sediment maturity profile.
  • Iatroscan. Tar mat delineation.
  • Physical property and elemental analysis. API Gravity, Viscosity, S, Ni, V, N, TAN, Wax content etc.
