Zedi’s lab testing: The same if by land as if by sea

Posted by Todd Martin on Oct 12, 2017 2:26:05 PM

While that headline is not exactly what Paul Revere said, I think he’d be proud of our offshore/inland waters testing crews. After all, they provide operators with fast and reliable information on gas content, meter proving and measurement just like our land-based people do.

They do all this with additional training in water survival techniques. Traveling in boats and helicopters, sometimes over vast expanses of the Gulf of Mexico, they arrive ready to get producers the information they need.

Because we value our clients’ investment in these trips, our people are trained to pull natural gas and liquid samples and to do any kind of meter testing, repair and replacement necessary, all in one trip. When a wider range of expertise is required we’ll put every expert you need on that same boat or helicopter.

We can test C1-C10, H2S, oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide. Those tests will be sent to the lab, and you’ll get the report as soon as possible. Dew point determination can be tested on site.

As for meters, we can install, calibrate and perform third-party witnessing. We can do all the above in one trip.

When most people think of offshore wells they imagine the deep platforms located miles out in the gulf. Perhaps that’s the adventurer in all of us.

Surprisingly, though, a lot of our business growth recently has come from inland waters—wells that can be accessed by a boat ride. Small and mid-size producers have been buying a lot of these wells from the majors in recent months. Whereas the majors may have their own in-house metering and testing departments, the small-to-midsize companies are looking to us for these services.

They’re also looking for ways to make the services as economical as possible.

That’s why we combine everything into one trip.

It’s also why we provide reports electronically, formatted to your specifications. Our measurement software keeps track of what work has been done at each location. It schedules future work based on the frequency you need.

It’s in everyone’s interest to have accurate metering and precise understanding of content. That way the producer knows what is being sold and the midstream company knows what they’re paying for.

At Zedi, we have years of experience testing and calibration, with a long list of happy customers. We’d love to talk to you about how we can solve the issue of how to get this data accurately and right on schedule.

By land or by sea, we can get you the results you need.
