The Crude Oil Quality Association

The COQA is dedicated to the belief that maintaining the integrity and consistency of the refining characteristics of crude oil streams is of importance to all parties involved in crude oil activity, from production locations to the refinery.

To this end, we hold three meetings annually. These meetings are open to the public and we welcome your attendance and involvement.
