Production and Analytical Chemistry

Understanding the physical and chemical properties of formation water, hydrocarbons, scales and deposits is critical for formation evaluation, crude valuation, facilities design, production planning, and flow assurance.

Ask an expert today to learn more about how Production and Analytical Chemistry can help you: 

  • Monitor and screen producing fluids for changes negatively impact production and profitability
  • Identify material depositing in and around facilities
  • Determine pipeline specification properties of crude. 
  • Independently evaluate suitability and effectiveness of chemicals

Production and Analytical Chemistry

Water Analysis

Physical and chemical properties of atmospheric formation water, seawater, and produced water for water injection, disposal, and compatibility.

Crude Oil and Condensates 

Physical and chemical properties of atmospheric crude oil and condensate for crude valuation, refinery processing, transportation, and to understand potential flow assurance issues.  

Mercury Analysis

Mercury can cause corrosion and impact the environment and refinery processes. Accurate determination of naturally occurring mercury in reservoir fluids is required for facilities design and on-going monitoring. 

Fluid Compatibility

Analytical testing by mixing two or more produced fluids to investigate production problems.  Includes emulsion, scaling, fluid blending, and gas injection studies. 

Chemical Evaluation

Independent review of third-party chemical products such as demulsifiers, wax/scaling/corrosion/asphaltene inhibitors, and anti-foaming agents to evaluate performance and efficiency.


A comprehensive analysis of deposits provides critical information on source which can be used to determine the most appropriate and cost effective remedial action. Typical deposits include corrosion products, inorganic scales, chemical residues, sand, and mud solids.
