Corpus Christi Area Measurement Society Announces 2012 School and Exhibition

Focus Will Be Hydrocarbon Measurement for the Eagle Ford Shale Play

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX--(Marketwire - Jan 17, 2012) - The Corpus Christi Area Measurement Society (CCAMS) School and Exhibition will be held February 21-22, 2012 at the Omni Marina Hotel in Corpus Christi, Texas. This year's event will focus on hydrocarbon measurement technologies for both gas and liquids that are most applicable to the rapidly expanding Eagle Ford Shale play of South Texas. Many of the CCAMS board members are heavily involved in this producing region, working as producers, pipeline operators, oilfield service/support companies, and other related vendors, and are committed to supporting its growth.

The unique measurement requirements and challenges of the Eagle Ford Shale region will be addressed for students and exhibition attendees during the 2012 conference. Those difficulties include high hydrogen sulfide and significant levels of paraffin in the produced liquids, and numerous general quality issues. A significant number of this year's classes will be hands-on, providing participants with practical experience involving flow computers, Coriolis meters, pressure transmitters, tubing connections and bending, etc. The topics and curriculum are comprehensive, covering the needs of field measurement technicians as well as office personnel who deal with measurement.

This year's exhibition will include more than 40 companies who will be presenting their newest measurement-related products and services with a special emphasis on the needs of the Eagle Ford Shale region. Many will be able to provide product demos and have the flexibility to schedule individual meetings during the two-day event.
