First Australian wet gas metering course scheduled for AOG

Organisers of the Australasian Oil & Gas Expo, in conjunction with Curtin University, will present a Wet Gas Metering course: the first of its type to be offered in Australia.

The course, a Curtin University initiative, is a promotion of flow assurance issues for the Australian oil and gas industry and will be conducted by Dr Richard Steven of the Colorado Engineering Experimental Station Inc (CEESI).

Australasian Oil & Gas Exhibition director, Bill Hare, said the program offers a unique opportunity for senior technicians and engineers to gain a solid understanding of wet gas metering and the processes and problems associated with this complex process.

“The Wet Gas Metering course will address the nature of wet gas flows and explain the various technologies commonly used to meter them. This is the first time a course of this description has been offered in Australia and anyone with an interest in this increasingly important field should not miss it,” Hare said.

Course presenter, Dr Richard Steven, is the director of Wet Gas & Multiphase Research at CEESI. A key focus of Dr Steven’s work has been the upgrade of the CEESI wet gas flow facility to a multiphase wet gas flow facility; he is also involved in theoretical and experimental wet gas flow metering research and development of industry standards.

“Dr Richard Steven is a scholar and researcher in the field of wet gas measurement and possesses technical, firsthand experience with wet steam flow measurement projects. We are excited to welcome Dr Steven to AOG and look forward to his educational and informative presentation,” Hare said.

The course will be delivered in eight parts and all delegates will receive a copy of the recently published ASME Standard on wet gas measurement.

The Wet Gas Metering Course will take place over two days on Wednesday 24 and Thursday 25 March at Perth Convention Exhibition Centre.
