With lots of new delegates attending for the first time, the event feedback was extremely positive about the presentations, the hotel venue, and the central location of Birmingham.

Discussing the event, Dr Chris Mills said: 

“These Measurement Focus Group meetings are the perfect opportunity for the flow measurement community to get together in person to connect, share knowledge, and simply catch up again after the past few years of virtual meetings.”

The next meeting in Aberdeen on Wednesday 30 August 2023 is fast approaching and Chris is interested to hear from anyone who would like to present at the event on the following measurement topics:

  • Oil & Gas Flow
  • CCUS
  • Hydrogen
  • Sampling
  • Produced water
  • Oil in water
  • Water in oil
  • CFD
  • Flaring
  • Measurement Uncertainty
  • New product developments such as Coriolis meters, ultrasonic meters, etc.

Please email your presentation title and five bullet point synopsis for review to [email protected]
