Oil & Gas

The oil and gas industry includes the global processes of exploration, extraction, refining, transporting (often by oil tankers and pipelines), and marketing petroleum products. Petroleum products in the oil and gas industry are vital to many industries, and are the raw material for many chemical products, including pharmaceuticals, solvents, fertilizers, pesticides, synthetic fragrances, and plastics. Analytical measurements throughout the oil and gas value chain are critical to maintain product quality, to control processes, to maintain safety and to protect the environment. Natural gas is a major component of the oil and gas industry, and there is increased use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) for economical storage and transportation of natural gas. By analyzing LNG as a cryogenic liquid, the Optograf™ analyzer can provide faster results with improved quality for critical measurements throughout the natural gas value chain.
