Testing Capabilities

Water Analysis

Water is vital to the oilfield and understanding the composition is critical. Compatibility with production and completion chemicals is important to fluid performance. On and off-site water analysis to identify over 20 different properties including: salts, met


Fluid rheology or viscosity plays a critical role in high viscosity friction reducer fluids. Our laboratories are equipped with viscometers and rheometers to evaluate fluid viscosity under various shear and temperature conditions. We can perform various tests including: Gel hydration, crosslink time, HPHT rheology, breaker profile, and viscoelasticity.

Friction Loop

Friction reducers are the main component in Slickwater fluids. The ability to effectively reduce frac pressures is critical to the success of a hydraulic fracturing operation. Products can be evaluated in a traditional laboratory or in the field. A friction loop is a great tool for product development and pre-job planning. We offer the only mobile friction loops in the field to monitor friction reducer performance on-site with field waters and chemicals.


Bacteria in oilfield waters contribute to corrosion of equipment and/or the formation of H2S in the well. It is critical to implement proper disinfection programs to ensure the integrity of the well. We provide testing services to monitor biocide/oxidizer efficiency and to validate proper usage. Test capabilities include: Serial dilution bottles (Sulfate-reducing, acid-producing, and Iron Reducing Bacteria), ATP testing Microbial genetics – DNA.

Sand Testing

Sand is an integral part of completions designs. We offer API 19C testing including Turbidity, Sand Sieve, and Acid solubility.


We can offer a variety of testing services including, clay stabilization, surfactant wetting properties, oil recovery, and formation damage. Our testing capabilities continue to expand, for the most current list, contact us today.
