Crude oil quality testing for the oil & gas industry.

Intertek laboratories test crude oil quality for important physical and chemical properties. Detailed crude oil assay quality test data helps place a commercial value on crude oil feedstocks during commercial transactions, and helps determine optimal feedstock choices for refineries.

Crude oil is tested by experienced petroleum chemists working with samples obtained from petroleum cargo tankers, reservoirs, pipelines, storage tanks, refineries, E&P projects, and other sources. Intertek is the leading provider of crude oil testing and assay services, with a global network of strategically located petroleum laboratories. Testing protocols include ASTM, IP, ISO, and others.
