Our proprietary technique for compositional analysis increases the ability to resolve, detect and quantify recovery of heavier end components and improves the overall accuracy of results

Bureau Veritas uniquely leverages technology in the analysis of natural gas and natural gas liquids. Processors and mid-streamers are now able to generate more accurate and defensible valuations of their product streams when they depend on Bureau Veritas' enhanced natural gas liquid and extended natural gas analyses. It is now common for NGL streams to contain concentrations of C6 and C7+ components that are in excess of the analytical limits for industry standard procedures. We have combined procedural enhancements with the application of advanced chromatography to provide accurate and reliable production valuations.
