QUALITY AND QUANTITY CONTROL OF CRUDE OIL AND LIQUIFIED PETROLEUM PRODUCTS
Crude oil and liquid petroleum fuels are delivered to storages by vessels, trucks and railway tanker cars. Quantitative and qualitative measurements are made depending on the type of delivery.
Regulation of the determination of quantities on stock prescribes that such determination is done by the monthly calculation, inventory or other similar terms, it is important to know that "Energy Metering" can only be performed by competent, qualified and independent inspection personnel. The complexity of measuring and calculating the quantities of oil and liquid petroleum fuels is one of the basic parameters that affect the operation of any energy entity engaged in the transportation, storage or trade of crude oil and petroleum products.
Independent inspectors have the role to carry out an impartial and accurate control of the quantity and quality of products.
By determining all the necessary parameters that affect the quantity calculation of controlled type of product, our Inspectors determine, impartially and accurately, the quantity for a third party, achieving the ultimate goal of displaying the movement of excise products at the delivery and dispatch to and from the Storage, as well as the display of quantities in stock and transportation.
In the turnover of excise products, the quantities are determined in:
- storage tanks of various forms without pressure,
- pressure storage tanks (LPG),
- on devices for measuring flow, volume and mass,
- by sea and river vessels,
- means of transport (car and tank wagon),
- crude oil pipelines and product pipelines.
Sampling is a very demanding process on which the exact declaration and final calculation of the quantity of products relies. Sampling can be defined as: "A small part taken from the total quantity of product that provides information and a picture on the product ".
The calculation of the exact quantity of products is based, besides the measurement itself, on the type and quality of the sample, i.e. on the quality and expertly performed sampling.
An automatic liquid level measuring system is a computer system used to determine the total gross volume in a tank without the influence of external factors on the actual quantity (temperature of products and environment, density of measured products and displacement of the floating roof, and in the case of pressure tanks and saturation of the gas phase ). Accurate determination of the quantities at the reference temperature at each receipt, dispatch or drainage from the tank (discharge of water and sediments) and with the obligatory monthly inventories and measurements, determines the total and actual turnover of excise products.
In practice, without the involvement of trained and professional Inspection staff, product owners and Independent storages who receive, store and deliver products are not able to present actual and accurate facts about the quantities and quality of products in circulation.

QUANTITY CONTROL OF CRUDE OIL AND LIQUIFIED PETROLEUM PRODUCTS
The term quality of products means a set of all characteristics that have a significant impact on the useful value of the products. The quality control of products and cargo has its stronghold in the system of leading international standards organizations such as ISO (International Organization for Standards) or ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials). They set out the technical specifications and other criteria that should be used as rules, instructions or definitions of particular properties, features and characteristics, in order for the product to fit its purpose. By regular monitoring of the quality of products in the system of movement of products, we maintain the quality system and guarantee compliance with the standards prescribed by Government bodies. We carry out the inspection independently, impartially and responsibly.
Through professional collaboration with laboratories, nationally and internationally, which is one of the cornerstones of inspection, OilSpec International is able to provide reliable and proven results that add value to product quality inspection.

In today's age of complete globalization, trade knows no boundaries and the market is flooded with various products and services from all over the world. On the one hand, there is increasing competition and the struggle for market survival is growing. Consumers enjoy their position because they have a great choice. But in the sea of offerings, it is very difficult to choose the product and service that most meets the needs.
Quality has become a major tool for businesses to resist the pressures of globalization, offering customers high-quality goods that meet their needs, requirements and expectations. Product quality control during the production process becomes one of the most important parameters that affect the final quality of the ordered product.
Influencing the quality of processes and products is a direct investment in the product. If the control methods are applied correctly and without exception, they are a guarantee of a quality product.
Independent and impartial monitoring, with the aim of determining that all the criteria defined in the reference normative documents and the technical specification are met, contributes to achieving the desired product quality.
