Major Contributors

The following organizations played a significant role in the creation and maintenance of the Measurement Library. Several of these organizations have their own disclaimers.

CEESI

CEESI initially the developed the Measurement Library in order to disseminate information about fluid measurement issues to the measurement community. In addition, CEESI continues to work with a variety of organizations to add downloadable PDFs and bibliographic references to the library. CEESI helps to organize and host the North American Custody Transfer Measurement Conference (occurs every June) and the European Flow Measurement Workshop (typically occurs every April). CEESI's services include: Flow Meter Calibrations, Wet Gas Testing, Training, and Specialty Testing. To learn more about CEESI, visit www.ceesi.com or follow CEESI on Linked In.

Pipeline Research Council International

The Pipeline Research Council International, or PRCI, has supplied an extensive amount funding and bibliographic references to the library as a service to the oil and gas industry. A variety of papers are available only for immediate download to PRCI members; members should access this library through the PRCI website in order to unlock the download option on many PDF's. To learn more about PRCI, visit www.prci.org or follow PRCI on Linked In.

International School of Hydrocarbon Measurement

The International School of Hydrocarbon Measurement (ISHM) has permitted all but the most recent year as available for download. In the early 1970's, the organization currently known as ISHM was called the "Southwestern Gas Measurement Short Course"; proceedings from this era are all available for download. ISHM is held every May in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. To learn more about ISHM, visit www.ishm.info, follow ISHM on Linked In, or comment on Twitter using #ISHM.

North American Fluid Flow Measurement Council

The North American Fluid Flow Measurement Council, which works with CEESI to host the International Symposium on Fluid Flow Measurement, has permitted previous proceedings to be included in this library. ISFFM is held every three to four years in the March/April. Papers can currently be downloaded for symposia held in 2015, 2012, 2006, 2006, 2002, 1999, 1995, 1990, and 1986. To learn more about ISFFM, visit www.isffm.org, get news via CEESI on Linked In, or join the Linked In group.

Appalachian Gas Measurement Short Course

The Appalachian Gas Measurement Short Course is an annual event that focuses on educating the natural gas community in North America. AGMSC is held every summer, typically at the end of July. The AGMSC has granted permission for library users to download all proceedings. To learn more about AGMSC, visit www.agmsc.com, follow AGMSC on Twitter using @AGMSCgas.

American School of Gas Measurement Technologies

American School of Gas Measurement Technologies (ASGMT) has granted permission for library users to download all but the most recent proceedings. ASGMT used to be called the "Gulf Coast Measurement Short Course". ASGMT occurs annually, usually in September. To learn more about ASGMT, visit www.asgmt.com follow ASGMT on Linked In.

Western Gas Measurement Short Courses

The Western Gas Measurement Short Course (WGMSC) purpose is to educate personnel of the gas industry to gas measurement and gas control. WGMSC seeks to improve the quality of service, advance the knowledge and learning, and provide a benefit to the gas industry. Prior to the 1980's the organization was known as the Pacific Northwest Gas Measurement and Control Short Course. WGMSC occurs in the spring of every other year (on odd numbered years). To learn more about WGMSC, visit www.wgmsc.org, follow WGMSC on Linked In, or comment on Twitter using #WGMSC.

FMI and NEL

NEL and the FMI (Flow Measurement Institute) have taken a coordinated approach to make the majority of papers /presentations from their major events available to download. This includes the South East Asia Hydrocarbon Flow Measurement Workshop (20xx – date), the North Sea Flow Measurement Workshop (even numbered years from 19xx – date) and the FMI conference (2015 – date). The North Sea Flow Measurement Workshop typically meets in autumn (often October) of even numbered years. The South East Asia Flow Measurement Conference typically meets in late winter (often March). The Flow Measurement Institute typically meets annually in July. NEL provides flow measurement and fluid mechanics services (consultancy, test and research) to the global oil & gas supply chain. It maintains the UK’s national flow measurement standards on behalf of the UK government. Having initiated the event over 30 years ago, NEL provides technical leadership, coordination and management of the NSFMW jointly with TEKNA. FMI is a virtual organization formed in 2016 to provide leadership and facilitate collaboration in the flow measurement community. The founding partners, NEL and University of Coventry, are supported by over 400 affiliated organization and individual members who have expressed an interest in flow measurement leadership, R&D, infrastructure and/or skills. To learn more about the NEL, visit www.tuvnel.org. To learn more about the FMI, visit www.flowmeasure.org.

Canadian School of Hydrocarbon Measurement

The Canadian School of Hydrocarbon Measurement (CsHm) has permitted all of their proceedings to be available for download. CsHm is held every March, usually in Alberta, Canada. To learn more about CsHm, visit www.cshm.ca, follow CsHm on Linked In, or comment on Twitter using #CSHM.

Natural Gas Sampling Technology Conference

The Natural Gas Sampling Technology Conference granted permission to allow documents from its technical library to be a part of the Measurement Library in order to benefit the flow measurement community. This conference is held every January. To learn more about the Natural Gas Sampling Technology Conference, visit www.ngstech.org or comment on Twitter using #NGSTech.

Acadiana Flow Measurement Society

The Acadiana Flow Measurement Society (AFMS) granted permission to allow documents from its technical library to be a part of the Measurement Library in order to benefit the flow measurement community. AFMS is held every spring (often March). To learn more about the Acadiana Flow Measurement Society, visit www.afms.org.

National Institute of Standards and Technology

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) contributed a large volume of measurement related documents that were in the public domain. To learn more about NIST, visit www.nist.gov.

Stark & Associates, Inc.

CEESI would like to acknowledge and thank Steve Stark of Stark & Associates, Inc. for contributed a large quantity of International School of Hydrocarbon Measurement (ISHM) proceedings to this technical library. His hope was that information in the proceedings would benefit the flow measurement community, and specifically those within the oil and gas industry. To learn more about Stark & Associates, visit www.starkassoc.com.
