Brine and Produced Water Analysis
Our wide range of corrosivity studies will help you eliminate corrosion conditions from your processes. Using state-of-the-art spectroscopy instrumentation, we can determine trace level elements at very low detection limits.
Texas OilTech Laboratories offers a broad range of laboratory experiments to help clients determine the chemistry of brine and produced water. When it comes to hazardous metal disposal, Texas OilTech Laboratories provides complete chemical composition and detailed property measurements for decreasing the risk of toxicity of the environment.
The following tests are available for chemical analysis:
- Organic Compounds by GC-MS
- Total Suspended Solids (TSS)
- Trace Metal Testing
- Hydrogen Sulfide Content
- Arsenic and Mercury in Water by ICP
- Hazardous Waste Characterization (RCRA)
- Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP)
- Specific Gravity and pH of Brine and Water
- Electrical Conductivity, Resistivity and Salinity
- Benzene, Toluene, Xylene (BTX) Concentrates Analysis by Capillary Column GasChromatography
Texas OilTech Laboratories uses the state-of-the-art Scanning Electron Microscope equipped with Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy (SEM/EDS) for compositional analysis of the solids. This analysis enables the client to understand the composition and the amount of suspended solids in produced water for better scale management.
Texas OilTech Laboratories’ Brine and Produced Water testing package covers the determination of the total nonaromatic hydrocarbons, benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylenes, and C9+ aromatic hydrocarbons in BTX concentrates by capillary column gas chromatography.
Texas OilTech Laboratories offers a series of experiments to investigate the corrosion tendency of fluids and to screen and optimize a number of corrosion inhibitors to prevent corrosion.
Trace Metals Analysis
Texas OilTech Laboratories’ Metals Department provides a full spectrum of trace and heavy metals using Inductively Coupled Plasma-Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-AES) and Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometer (ICP-MS). This includes arsenic, cadmium, chromium, mercury and lead.
