Crude Oil & Petroleum Products inspection

Delivering assurance on the quality and quantity of your shipments

Business Challenge

International trade is on the rise and involves an increasing number of players including producers, exporters, importers, traders, banks, insurance companies, government bodies and international organizations. In any transaction where goods are bought and sold, there is a transfer of ownership. The various parties need support from an independent third party to reassure them of the conformity of cargoes. They also need quick reporting from the field about quality and quantity or any other specific aspect of the product.

Solution

What is Crude Oil & Petroleum Products inspection? Crude Oil & Petroleum Products inspection involves inspecting for quantity and quality. Such inspections can be performed at different stages in the product cycle including at the production site, on producing platforms, at storage locations, during draining of crude oil, at loading or unloading installations, on vessels, or in road tank trucks. Bureau Veritas inspectors survey the operations, report on the visual condition of the cargo, perform shore and ship tank measurements, and draw samples to check quality by laboratory analysis. Other specific services can be provided such as Gas Free & Bunker Surveys, Terminal Audits, and Loss Control consultancy to help traders calculate and prove the demurrages of vessels. Daily reporting is provided to the client during any operation, from arrival of the vessel at the Terminal up to the completion of loading or discharge. As soon as loading or discharge operation is completed, a global report is sent by e-mail.
