CRUDE OIL QUALITY

BUREAU VERITAS SPECIALIZES IN CRUDE OIL TESTING FOR PIPELINE SPECIFICATION TESTING

Samples of crude oil and their distillation fractions are analyzed to determine a variety of physical and chemical properties that will affect the value and treatment of the oil. These tests are normally performed according to industry recognized ASTM, CGSB, UOP and IP procedures. Bureau Veritas' capabilities are vast and range from simple tests such as sulfur and density to more elaborate testing such as vacuum distillations of petroleum products.

In the petroleum industry, it is important to be involved in the decision-making process that determines the testing procedures and applications. To remain as current as possible, and to provide valued input, Bureau Veritas is a participant and voting member of ASTM, CGSB, CCQTA and COQA.   Our staff participate as instructors at the Canadian Hydrocarbon School of Measurement (CSHM) and frequently chair industry expert panels.
