Chemical Analysis

At NCIMB we have developed our chemical analysis services in response to the needs of the oil and gas industry.  We offer a broad range of tests on a wide variety of liquid and solid sample types. Our services include chemical characterisation of scales, barium testing of sediments, zinc and iron analysis, and a standard suite of commonly requested effluent tests, which includes total hydrocarbons, copper, pH and COD.

We offer:

  • mass spectrometry for metals analysis to ppt or ppq levels
  • silicon testing
  • total hydrocarbon content
  • COD
  • BOD
  • pH
  • total suspended solids
  • sulphide/sulphate
  • chloride/chlorine
  • dissolved oxygen
  • acid drop testing

We can also source and manage additional services where required in order to deliver a comprehensive, bespoke, one-stop-shop waste and effluent testing package.  We regularly handle scales, pig wax, drill cuttings, fuels and effluents, but all our chemical tests can be carried out on a wide range of solid and liquid samples. Please contact us to discuss your requirements in detail.
