Intertek to showcase hydrocarbon measurement software at US conference


Intertek, a leading quality solutions provider to industries worldwide, has announced that it will showcase PT5, its unique hydrocarbon measurement software, at this year’s Opportunity Crudes Conference in the US.

In response to the challenges faced by clients in the region, Intertek will showcase PT5, an advanced software package offering users real-time hydrocarbon composition measurement and therefore the ability to improve control and optimisation.

Processing heavy crudes is more complex and costlier than processing medium and light crudes. However, this practice is becoming increasingly common among North American refiners as they adapt to meet a projected growth in imports and energy demand over the coming decade.

Many challenges still exist surrounding heavy crude refining, including quality analyses, assay management, blending and the production of fuels and petrochemicals desirable to the market.

Benefits PT5 can bring to clients include the facilitation of crude quality tracking, fiscal pipeline and wellstream allocation and gasoline and diesel blending. Alongside this suite of applications, Intertek will also demonstrate PT5’s capabilities in determining the stability of crude oil blends.

To elaborate on the technology and engage with current issues facing the industry, two experts from Intertek will be presenting a paper at the conference, which will take place between the 14th and 16th of September at the Westin Oaks Hotel, Houston, Texas.

Raymond Pirie, Vice President of Exploration and Production at Intertek, said: “We look forward to attending the Opportunity Crudes Conference this year to highlight this unique product and share our expertise. This will be the first time that our PT5 software has been demonstrated in the Americas, illustrating our dedication to bringing innovative technologies and solutions to clients in the region and addressing the challenges they face in a fast-evolving energy market.”
