Intertek Expands Petroleum And Chemical Industry Services In Turkey

Intertek, the leading quality solutions provider to industries worldwide, has opened a new petroleum testing laboratory in Kirikkale, Turkey, close to the capital city Ankara. The Kirikkale laboratory supports both local and regional customers with fuel quality testing for diesel and gasoline, and is adding a full range of tests to analyze liquid petroleum gases (LPG).

The Kirikkale laboratory joins a growing network of Intertek petroleum and chemical laboratories in Turkey. Laboratory services in Turkey include analytical services to test crude oil, refinery petroleum products, automotive fuels, LPG, biofuels, and petrochemicals.

In-house expertise and analytical resources provide clients with problem solving solutions, trace contamination identification, and advanced fuel analysis. Intertek's Turkish fuel laboratories operate at world-class standards supporting refinery, pipeline, terminal storage, and other oil & gas operations.

The labs follow accepted global and industry regulatory standards such as ASTM, ISO, and IP. Intertek Turkey has six ISO 17025 accredited petroleum and chemical laboratories, with the Kirikkale lab scheduled for accreditation in the coming weeks.

"Intertek is continuing to expand the number of laboratories and our testing capabilities in Turkey," said Omer Mertoglu, Commodities General Manager for Turkey. "As Turkey's economy expands, our testing and inspection expertise and services help our clients maintain and grow quality control, reduce business risk, and meet regulatory compliance. Our value-added services help sustain this economic growth."

Along with Kirikkale, other Intertek Turkey petroleum and chemical laboratories in Turkey are located in Aliaga, Ambarli, Tuzla, Antalya, Mersin, and Iskerendrun.
