JP3 Receives 2018 Hydrocarbon Processing Award for Best Analyzer Technology
JP3 Digital Crude Signature
AUSTIN, Texas, September 5, 2018 (Newswire.com) - JP3 Measurement, LLC (JP3) is pleased to announce that it has received the Best Analyzer Technology award for 2018 by Hydrocarbon Processing magazine. The award, which was announced at the Houston ceremony on August 30, recognizes the high potential of the recently launched JP3 Digital Crude Signature technology.
The JP3 Digital Crude Signature (DCS) technology utilizes data from its Verax analyzer systems and software solutions to provide a composite picture of crude oil properties, including True Boiling Pointcuts, hydrocarbon composition, API gravity, RVP, and contaminants. The JP3 DCS allows downstream purchasers the ability to track individual batches of crude from point of purchase through transportation to refinery delivery. It further allows refiners to optimize blended crudes for each individual crude tower.
As noted in the Award Nomination, most contractual compliance of crude oil bought and sold uses a combination of crude origin and API Gravity to determine if a product received is the product originally purchased. However, API gravity does not provide traders and planners with the compositional specificity required to determine the true underlying value of the liquid condensate or crude oil being transacted. It also prevents a buyer from sourcing optimum crudes for its refineries, forcing the buyer to price contracts based on an outdated proxy or manual assays.
In addition to the JP3 Digital Crude Signature, JP3 provides a broad range of data analytics, compositional measurement and application solutions across the entire natural gas and crude oil supply chain with more than four hundred installations in North America.
