Intertek, a solutions provider to industries worldwide, has opened a new laboratory in Elmendorf, Texas, to address the company’s significant market opportunity in the Eagle Ford Shale market and to support the industry’s growing customer base in this region.
The new 2,400-square-foot laboratory is well placed, 13 miles south of San Antonio in the heart of the Eagle Ford shale play, to provide quality control and related technical services to shale oil and gas clients. Specific testing capabilities at the new lab include hydrogen sulfide, reid vapor pressure (RVP), detailed hydrocarbon analysis, and more.
The new facility complements Intertek’s existing global network of oil and gas laboratories and is the first shale oil and gas designated lab. Advanced analytical instrumentation and technical expertise allows for industry-specific testing such as analysis of crude oil offered for transportation, as recently issued by the US Department of Transportation, and GPA gas analysis.
