Winsor (Chip) Letton, Ph.D.
Areas of Specialization
Chip's background in manufacturing and research has led to several specialty areas including: multiphase flow measurement, wet gas flow measurement, ultrasonic flow meters, optical flow meters and digital signal processing.
Chip started the Letton-Hall Group in 2001 with his long-time associate, Jim Hall, with whom he has worked for 34 years. Since then, the partnership has grown to a total of four consulting engineers.
Chip's career in the oil and gas business began in 1973 after his graduate school years and four years in the US Navy. After joining Schlumberger at the corporate research lab in Ridgefield, CT, he led development of various sensors and systems used in the exploration and production of oil and gas there, and later at engineering centers in Houston and Austin, Texas, the latter where he finished his eighteen years with Schlumberger at the corporate systems center.
In 1991 he joined Daniel Industries as Manager of Research and Engineering. During the period from then until 2001 he presided over numerous important new product developments, including the Daniel Senior Sonic gas ultrasonic flow meter, the MEGRA multiphase flow meter, the DanLoad 6000 Electronic Preset Batch Controller, and the Danalyzer Pro Gas Chromatograph.
Chip is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers.
