Flow-Cal, Inc., the market leader in measurement data management for natural gas and petroleum liquids, will hold their 16th annual Flow-Cal Users Group conference July 20-23, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue on Seattle, Washington’s eastside.

Seattle was selected as the host city for this year’s Users Group meeting to reach Flow-Cal’s northwest regional customers, including many traveling from the West Coast and Western Canada.

The Flow-Cal Advisory Board (FAB-8) and Flow-Cal have planned a powerful agenda for the four-day event, including informative sessions, case studies, roundtable discussions and networking events concentrating on Flow-Cal’s products and measurement best practices.

The program for the 2015 event includes a large number of industry instructors from Flow-Cal’s user community, bringing operational experiences to aid other users in more effective utilization of Flow-Cal products.

Furthermore, with much of the industry shifting its focus to oil production, an extended liquids measurement track has been added to this year’s program for training on industry fundamentals and the practical application with Flow-Cal’s product line.

The keynote speaker for the 2015 Users Group conference comes from Microsoft Corporation, which embodies Seattle’s booming technology industry. Worldwide Oil and Gas Industry Solutions Director, Nives Stanfelj, will discuss how companies are leveraging new technology to transform business practices. For instance, Flow-Cal’s next generation development project (nGen) is utilizing Microsoft’s underlying technology and UI design to maximize user experience.

Additionally, nGen will ensure seamless integration with Microsoft Office products and optimal user experience in current and future Windows releases. Stanfelj is accountable for defining and executing Microsoft’s strategies for Oil and Gas industries.

“Although our industry has been challenged over the past year, companies still recognize the value and opportunities associated with the Users Group conference,” said Michael Squyres, Flow-Cal’s President. “During the week, we work as a community to share our measurement expertise and collaborate on industry initiatives. With representatives from more than 60 global oil and natural gas companies in attendance, and this year’s lineup of experienced industry instructors, we are looking forward to another excellent event.”

The annual Flow-Cal Users Group provides a forum for sharing practical information that will help companies streamline operations and create efficiencies throughout their organization.

The next annual Users Group conference will be held in San Antonio, Texas October 24-27, 2016.
