Petroleum | Anton Paar Process Solution throughout all Production Steps

The exploration, exploitation, production, field processing, transportation, refining and distribution of hydrocarbons are extensive operations. The products pass a lot of stages before, during, and after the refining process. To continuously monitor your products’ characteristics and to optimize your process at every stage, Anton Paar provides several solutions at many points.


The oil and gas industry is usually dived into three major segments:

  • Upstream
  • Midstream
  • Downstream

The upstream segment includes the exploration of potential oil or gas fields, the exploitation of this field (drilling the wells) and the production (bring the raw crude or gas to the surface).

The midstream segment includes the field processing steps like separating the raw crude into crude oil, gas, water and impurities, the temporary storage and transportation to the refinery.

The downstream segment includes the refining of the crude oil including all required production steps to get the final product and the distribution of the final products.

Sometimes the midstream segment is included in the downstream segment.

With its wide portfolio of (Ex-certified) process instruments such as density sensors (L-Dens 7000), viscosity sensors (L-Vis), and sound velocity sensors (L-Sonic), Anton Paar provides several solutions to optimize the process at many points in all segments.
