Crude Oil Assay
As the industry takes a broader range of crude oils into production, SGS provides the analytical data that you need to make the most of any new opportunities.
Our crude oil assay evaluation helps you market your oil more effectively, as well as making it easier to identify potential value chain partners.
The benefits of crude oil assay testing
As industry leaders in the field of oil testing, we understand that getting the right crude oil to the right refinery is essential to prevent problems of yield, quality and production. Crude oil analysis from SGS helps ensure that your crude oil is compatible with the target refinery process. Analysis will also confirm that the end product can be delivered on time, at the quality expected and without any interruption to supply.
Our flexible assay solutions allow you to demonstrate your commitment to supplying crude oil data that meets the exacting standards required for processing. Having a complete characterisation of your crude oil not only facilitates the job of the refinery team, but also puts business planners in the best possible position to maximise profits.

Using a variety of both standard and innovative procedures, SGS’s crude oil assay testing laboratories provide the molecular and chemical characterisations of crude oil. Information is generated on the boiling-range and on each requested fraction within the range using a variety of physical testing procedures. We measure sulphur content, nitrogen content, viscosity, cold properties and metals content as part of the normal analysis of the general properties of the crude oil. We also analyse the crude oil off-gas and provide you with full hydrocarbon analysis including key health and safety data such as hydrogen sulphide content and any mercury species present.
