Our business is to produce, provide and manage crude quality information that directly and indirectly increases the productivity of our customers and the petroleum industry.
Crude Quality Inc. was established to meet the communications demand between producers, shippers, and receivers of crude oil with respect to the quality of the crude oil product.
Our commitment is to provide information that will elevate crude oil supplies from the status of a commodity to that of a definable and reliable raw material. We believe that maintaining the integrity and consistency of the refining characteristics of crude oil streams is of importance to all parties involved in crude oil activities, from production locations to refineries and to the end user of hydrocarbon products.More About

Crude Quality Inc. has been actively supporting initiatives on the part of the Canadian pipeline companies to harmonize the quality of as-received and as-delivered crude product quality.

Key points for quality in the transportation sector include, but are not limited to, reliability, ratability and commodity consistency.
