This is crude oil skimmed off the top of disposal wells or separation tanks. Typically, the oil recovered through this process fails to meet the accepted industry standard for BS&W (Basis Sediment and Water) content. It is not unusual for skim oil to contain up to 10% BS&W, whereas the desired content is >0.5%.
Stratnor purchases skim oil at a discount to the prevailing market benchmark. We use our proprietary processing technology in combination with our exclusive chemical formulas and blending knowhow to reduce BS&W values to <0.5%.
