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.
During his more than 35 years of experience with technology companies, Jim has developed wide ranging expertise. He has been involved in the development and utilization of flow measurement instrumentation, ranging from multiphase and wet gas meters, gas and liquid ultrasonic flowmeters, gas chromatographs and flow computers. His experience with measurement and allocation of commingled production has been applied to resolving problems for many clients.
Klaus is widely recognized for his contributions to all areas of flow measurement.†He has 40 publications and holds 10 patents. He is the designer of the Zanker Flow Conditioner, an invention that was adopted as an international standard in ISO 5167, 1980.†During his career, Klaus has made significant contributions at the following instrumentation companies: Daniel, Schlumberger, Sarasota Instruments, Agar and Kent Instruments.
Eric is a former measurement engineer at Questar Pipeline, and a former manager of the Metering Research Facility at Southwest Research Institute, a world-class flow meter research and calibration facility.†His real world operating company experience combine with his experience in applied research to provide a detail-oriented, but realistic view of flow measurement. With expertise in single and multiphase flow measurement, as well as fluid properties and oil and gas quality determination, Eric provides a broad flow measurement knowledge base.
Eric joined LHG in 2009 after 20 years with Schlumberger. Ericís technical specialties include multiphase flow measurement and allocation, well testing and production diagnostics, and technology and product development. His operational experience spans from exploration and appraisal to field development and planning, to brownfield production. Eric has strong skills in process management, knowledge management, asset management, and personnel development.
Tom is the newest member of LHG, joining in 2010 after 25 years with the Southwest Research Institute and 5 years with the University of Texas at San Antonio. Tomís technical specialties include orifice meter installation effects, single phase and multiphase flow behavior, fluid flow visualization, fluid properties determination and simulation of transient flow in natural gas pipelines.
