Water content testing for crude oil, petroleum, fuels, chemicals, and other refined petroleum products.

Determining the water content of crude oil, refined petroleum products, fuels, biofuels, lubricants, chemicals, and other products is important for maintaining quality control, meeting trade specifications, protecting financial value, and enhancing process optimization. 

Knowing water content in hydrocarbons enables clients to take steps to reduce risks from corrosion, safety problems, and infrastructure damage which can be caused from unwanted water content levels.

Intertek helps our clients in the oil & gas, petrochemical and biofuel industries understand and control water moisture and content throughout the production, storage, transportation, and cargo custody transfer stages of the business.

Water content analysis and testing is available on a 24/7/365 basis from Intertek's global laboratory network. Water content test methods include accepted industry standards such as ASTM, ISO, EN, IP and others.
