In its 38th year, the 2020 North Sea Flow Measurement Workshop is the single most important event in the global flow measurement calendar. To reflect ongoing worldwide restrictions, it has been transformed into a virtual event.

Hosted by TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory, this year’s theme is “technical innovation” and how this relates to the future of flow measurement, with discussion topics widened to include low carbon, energy and downstream businesses.

The technical programme features a line-up of flow measurement expert speakers who will share their field experiences and present the latest research into all aspects of flow measurement. The technical sessions will be chaired by industry experts including Imed Benlizidia, Saudi Aramco; Nigel Holmes, Scottish Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Association; and Stuart Broadley, EIC.

Delegates from 30 countries would normally attend the conference, so to accommodate different time zones this year’s virtual event will be extended across 4 days. The interactive experience will retain the core values of previous workshops – a highly technical focus with delegates engaging directly with leading flow measurement experts to promote knowledge transfer.

Dr Bruno Pinguet, Workshop Technical Committee Chair, says, “Innovation drives growth and it is vitally important for industry to stay ahead of developments in technology, regulation and practice to deliver competitive advantage. The North Sea Flow Measurement Workshop continues to meet these challenges head-on and the virtual format will enable an even wider global audience to participate.”
