2017 School Dates – September 18 – 21, 2017

This School is the largest gas measurement school in the United States devoted to natural gas measurement, pressure regulation, flow control, and other measurement related arenas. The School is structured to focus on seven main subject groups:

The School is comprised of a two and one-half day series of 1 hour lecture and hands-on classes, plant tours, and exhibits by 108 exhibitors. Exhibitors are requested to teach application and performance capabilities of their equipment and refrain from sales activities during the School. At the time of registration, the registrants receive a CD copy of the “Proceedings” of the American School of Gas Measurement Technology containing the technical papers to be presented in the various lectures which comprise the current program. It also contains the General Chairman’s Opening Remarks and a biography of the Principal Speaker. Each registrant should plan their schedule carefully and adhere to it in order to derive maximum benefit from the School. The American School of Gas Measurement Technology is a non-profit organization which has always been self-supporting. The expenditures of the School are paid entirely from the proceeds of the School. The formal “Proceedings” of the School are published by the General Committee and a CD copy is furnished without additional cost to each paid registrant.

  • Purpose

It is the purpose of the School, the sponsoring associations, and the operating and manufacturing companies within the petroleum and natural gas industry, to provide instruction on technical subjects for people in the industry. In this way, proper facility design, installation, operation, and maintenance of measurement and regulation equipment, and the handling of natural gas, is presented and studied. Accurate and useful information is also developed and published for the benefit of the industry and the general public.

Organization

Board of Directors

The School is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of the present and past General Chairmen, the President and Vice President of the Gulf Coast Gas Measurement Society, and one appointed representative from the sponsoring educational institution. The Board of Directors elects from its members a President, a Vice-President(s), a Secretary and a Treasurer. The Board of Directors also elects the General Chairman of the School and approves the Chairman and Vice Chairman for each of the Subcommittees.

General Committee

The General Committee consists of approximately 60 members selected from the industry’s operating and manufacturing companies.

The group is comprised of members of the faculty of major universities who offer engineering instructions pertinent to the School’s theme, representatives from the petroleum industry, representatives of equipment manufacturers, and others directly interested in the science of gas measurement. These speakers and instructors are selected by the Program Subcommittee from the available candidates recommended by the General Committee.

Educational Exhibits

The equipment companies have assisted the School through educational exhibits and class instruction. They recognize the impropriety of competitive selling during the School and at the request of the General Committee have observed such. Preparations of exhibits and the cooperation of the exhibitors is very much appreciated by the School and is necessary for our continued success.
