Brine Physiochemical Solutions (FluidPro PAL)

Accurate and representative screening data – available on site and on demand through our portable laboratories.

Consistent, reliable data to support screening in advance of designing production systems and process controls.

Before moving to the production phase, accurate data about your oil and gas reserves is essential. Through our FluidPro portable analytical laboratory (PAL)™ units, we offer onsite brine physiochemistry solutions to provide valuable data for evaluating potential issues related to oil and gas production.
