Analytical Lab Services
Objective Answers for Environmental Monitoring and Oil Spill Response
When you need accurate, defensible data, trust Battelle. We do more than routine analytical testing—we solve problems. We offer a full range of analytical services to help our oil & gas clients make effective decisions for exploration, productions, resource allocation, source attribution and environmental stewardship.
Our experienced scientists help you look beyond the numbers to extract meaningful information from the data. Whether you are investigating a potential accidental release, gathering data to meet EPA requirements, or simply monitoring ongoing activities, we’ll make sure you have defensible data and clear explanations to help you develop a path forward. And we’ll do it right the first time, so you can minimize time and costs and make confident decisions for development or remediation.
When you need to know exactly where hydrocarbon contaminants have originated, we can help. Battelle’s team of experienced hydrocarbon chemists offers rapid response, accurate analysis and an integrated analytical and statistical approach to hydrocarbon forensics. Traditional EPA methods do not target all of the analytes needed for accurate hydrocarbon source identification. Our methods go beyond minimum EPA requirements to enhance detection limits, reduce false positives and negatives, and provide better data for more accurate source attribution.
Our unique laboratory and research facilities employ advanced biomarker and other high resolution analysis and chemometric capabilities to detect and identify petroleum hydrocarbons in sensitive environments and track their dispersion, transformation and ultimate fate. We conduct sophisticated analysis to support advanced hydrocarbon composition analysis, toxicology studies, water accommodated fraction/chemically enhanced water accommodated fraction (WAF/CEWAF) studies, ecological risk assessment, fingerprinting, and source attribution.
- Rapid response for time-dependent investigations
- Accurate product identification (fingerprinting) to determine source(s) and relative contribution
- Reliable data for assessment of environmental impact, legal responsibility and liability issues
- Analysis of biodegradation and environmental impact for more efficient spill response
