Petroleum Testing Process

We offer a systemic approach to petroleum testing that involves quality analysis of petroleum products during various stages of the production processes—upstream, midstream, and downstream.

Upstream refers to the exploration and production phase when potential crude oil and natural gas fields are identified, exploratory wells are dug, and natural gas and crude oil and brought to the surface.

Midstream processes include transporting, storing, and wholesale marketing crude or refined petroleum products. Lastly, downstream processes involve refining petroleum crude oil, processing, and purifying raw natural gas.

Certain elements are added to the fuels to prevent delivery system problems by stabilizing gasoline, boosting octane, lubricating the upper cylinder, preventing fuel line freezing, and cleaning fuel injections. Benzene and toluene are two such additives. ASTM 3606 helps identify such additives, specifically 0.1 to 5% toluene and between 2 to 20% benzene.

Inorganic contaminants taint refined fuels are pose a significant threat to their quality as they can corrode the equipment and interfere with the catalysts used in the refining process. While analyzing trace levels of halogens and sulfur is challenging, combustion IC helps measure them accurately. In addition, ICP-OES can be leveraged to periodically analyze trace metals.
