Facts: What is a crude oil assay?

A crude oil assay is essentially the chemical evaluation of crude oil feedstocks by petroleum testing laboratories. Each crude oil type has unique molecular, chemical characteristics. No crude oil type is identical and there are crucial differences in crude oil quality. The results of crude oil assay testing provide extensive detailed hydrocarbon analysis data for refiners, oil traders and producers. (Source: Wikipedia)

About our crude oil assays

For each crude oil type, there is a commercial assay based on a representative sample of the crude.

The contents of the assays in this section are for guidance only and Statoil accepts no liability for any loss occurring from the use of these assays and errors that they may contain.
