NEW ORLEANS -- December 19, 2013

Intertek, the leading quality solutions provider to industries worldwide, has
opened a new petroleum and residual fuel oil testing laboratory in Harvey,
Louisiana, close to several major petroleum refineries and tank storage
facilities. The new laboratory is over 8,000 square feet in size, and offers
full 24/7 analytical services, expertise, and support to many refineries and
clients in the area. Replacing an older facility in Gretna, the new Harvey
laboratory is purpose built, and supports both local and regional customers
with a range of testing and inspection services.

The ISO certified laboratory conforms to ASTM, IP, ISO and other industry
standard methodology to provide quality control testing on feed-stocks,
petroleum refined products, and asphalt.

The Harvey facility is part of a global network of laboratories and works with
other Intertek labs in Louisiana and around the world to provide clients with
extended expertise, services, and quality results. In-house expertise and
analytical resources provide clients with problem solving solutions, trace
contamination identification, and advanced fuel analysis. Intertek’s USA fuel

terminal storage, and other oil & gas operations.

“Intertek is committed to supporting the growing oil refining and bunkering
operations occurring in the Gulf Coast region,” said Billy McInnis, Senior
Director, East Gulf Coast USA, for petroleum analytical assessment and cargo
inspection services. “With industry expansion being driven from an increased
supply of shale oil and gas, Intertek is expanding our capabilities as well,
to better help our clients maintain and grow quality control, reduce business
risks, and meet regulatory compliance.”
