Water Analysis

Resolve issues with thorough analysis of oilfield water

Our Houston-based laboratory services help to resolve oilfield issues related to water sourcing, flow assurance, corrosion mitigation, water injection, and treatment efficiency. After taking measures for appropriate water sampling and preservation, we execute projects involving fresh, formation, produced, injection, and disposal waters.

Depending on the results, we can perform subsequent laboratory tests on scaling and water treatment processes. We also offer consulting services for scale, corrosion, water-production allocation, and more.
