The Petroleum Industry
There are three broad classes of Petroleum markets in Pakistan; the Retail sector which provides automotive products, including lubricants to customers is the largest and most visible activity and accounts for 60 per cent of all petroleum products consumed in the country through some 5000 filling stations; the second largest class of market is the industrial sector. Here the companies provide on a direct business to business basis a range of products from fuel oil, AGO, MOGAS and lubricants. Typical customers here are power plants, construction projects, cement and sugar industries etc., the third class of market is the Aviation sector which is serviced by all three companies

The Need for Petroleum Testing
After years of distilled experience in the field of testing, we believe Testing of a product always paves the path towards enhancing the customer’s confidence and for providing corrective techniques for reducing wastages, optimizing production and for the reduction of latent costs. May it be the consumer or the supplier; both in every aspect get the benefits. While the tool of testing helps to monitor a consistent and high quality product, it also at the same time results in giving the respective product a competitive edge and a better market access.
When it comes to the Petroleum industry, Optimum utilization of these products is essential, for which the quality of the product must be in line with the relevant standards / specifications.
The Petroleum Products are used by all the high investment power plants, construction projects, cement and sugar industries etc because of which the efficiency of the respective engine/machine is always on hold.
Now days, as a result of a large amount of power plants installations and the increased demand of emergency/rental power generators, fuel quality requirements have become more stringent.
Therefore testing of petroleum here, once again saves the day by reducing the risk involved regarding efficiency /performance/damage of the equipments which consume these fuels, and also by reducing productions losses and power outages.
