Compositional Analysis

Gas and Liquid

Compositional analysis of gases by GPA2286 and atmospheric liquids to C36+ using proprietary methodology.

Drilling Mud Contamination

Determine the level of contamination of oil-base mud in the stock tank liquid through gas chromatography analysis of reservoir fluid and mud filtrate. 


Aids in determining the origin of sample of oil or hydrocarbon residue and distinguishes between multiple sources of contamination such as lubricants or other refined products. 

C60 Paraffin

Distribution of the paraffin components from Heptadecanes (C17) through Pentacontanes (C60) of a hydrocarbon system can be used for quality control, predicting fuel properties, identification of contaminants, and prevention of equipment issues.  

Mercaptan Speciation

Identify the different types of mercaptans present in a sample and optimize the required treatment process. Additionally, identify other sulfur-containing compounds that may be present, such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S), which can be toxic and corrosive.

Saturates Aromatics Resins and Asphaltenes

Divide crude oil components and determine the concentration of each fraction to understand the properties of the crude oil and optimizing the refining process.

Trace Element Analysis

Identify the presence and concentration of various trace elements including Helium, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Methanol and Mercury for quality assessment and down-stream production determination.
