At SGS, we know just how important it is to have accurate data about your oil and gas reserves before moving to the production phase.

Oil Rig

Through our FluidPro portable analytical laboratory (PAL)™ units, we provide onsite brine geochemistry solutions capable of providing valuable data for evaluating potential issues related to oil and gas production. These basic tests deliver consistent, reliable data to support screening in advance of designing production systems and process controls.
