Crude Oil Quality Specification Laboratory in Edmonton, Alberta

Another innovation from the ONLY Canadian Owned Commercial Laboratory

AGAT Laboratories has expanded its petroleum testing facility in Edmonton, built to service both the upstream and midstream sectors of Alberta. Amongst other things, this laboratory has been designed to meet the growing demands of transporting dangerous goods requiring MSDS’ (as per Transportation Canada’s Directive 31), as well as to ensure your product has accurate specifications for meeting pipeline quality criteria. 
 
The primary feature of this laboratory expansion is the inclusion of state-of-the-art instrumentation. AGAT Laboratories has researched and invested into the most up to date, and advanced instrumentation commercially available. Examples of this include Olefins by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), Trace Mercury in Oil (UOP 938), and Metals in Crude Oil by ICP. Additionally, AGAT Laboratories proudly hosts full automation for its distillation apparatuses, brand new instrumentation for accurate TVP analyses, and proven techniques for reliable Organic Chlorides Content in Crude Oil (ASTM D4929).
 
Being recently accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 standards for specific parameters as listed in our scope of accreditation by the Canadian Association for Laboratory Accreditation (CALA), this new addition to AGAT Laboratories’ robust lab network is prepared to handle both high volumes of samples as well as short turnaround time requests. 
 
With over 30 years of oilfield experience, AGAT Laboratories is your turn-key solution for bringing your product into production and off to market. Contact us to book a tour of one of our Petroleum Testing Facilities today!
