Houston, Texas, 11 May, 2017 – Leighton O’Brien today announced a US sales distribution agreement with Conidia Biocience Ltd, manufacturers of FUELSTAT®, the latest technology in microbial contamination detection in middle distillate fuels.

Fuelstat® complement’s Leighton O’Brien’s patented fuel cleaning and polishing services and improves fuel quality testing and treatment strategies for the fuel cleaning and polishing industry.

“Through this partnership, we can expand our product and service offering to enhance our portfolio of market-leading technologies,” said Jeff Davis, President of Leighton O’Brien USA. “We can now offer our customers the best onsite diesel fuel quality test. The FUELSTAT® PLUS diesel fuel test is ASTM D8070 compliant to determine the presence of fungi, bacteria and diesel bugs in 10 minutes.

“This partnership will enable our customers to properly detect and treat diesel fuel quality issues at a significantly reduced cost when compared to older methods on the market. If you can use an eye-dropper, you can now test your diesel fuel in minutes,” he said.

Conidia Bioscience Ltd. Global Sales and Marketing Director, Patrick Taylor said, “The partnership with Leighton O’Brien will enable customers and PEI service providers to test diesel fuel in minutes for the presence of fungi, bacteria and diesel bugs.

This summer, Conidia will launch our mobile application allowing fuel test results to be transmitted to a secure cloud based database within seconds of the test results.”

Leighton O’Brien CEO, Reed Leighton said, “The U.S. fuel cleaning and polishing market continues to evolve and our partnership with Conidia will give customers an effective tool in determining the proper treatment to address fuel quality issues.
