fuel for thought Endress+Hauser Opens New Building in Malaysia


Sales center aims to serve its customers even better in the future. Endress+Hauser has invested 4.5 million euros in a new sales offi ce in Shah Alam near Kuala Lumpur. Customers will be joining the employees of Endress+Hauser Malaysia to celebrate the opening of the new facility, which among other things will be used to expand the company’s training offering in order to provide more in-depth customer support.


“The new building in Shah Alam represents a milestone for Endress+Hauser Malaysia and enables us to continue to meet the demanding requirements of our customers,” explained Mun Kong Chow, Managing Director of Endress+Hauser Malaysia, during the inauguration ceremony. The roughly 3,000-square-meter facility houses a new calibration center for fl ow, level, pressure and liquid analysis instruments, in addition to spacious training rooms and an auditorium that provide ample space for hands-on customer training.


“We also felt the need to be able to offer our employees a modern and contemporary work atmosphere,” added Mun Kong Chow. Established in 1989 with 10 employees, today Endress+Hauser Malaysia is considered one of the country’s leading providers of measurement and process control technology. The company currently has a workforce of more than 80 people who are focused on the chemical, food & beverage, palm oil, oil & gas, water & wastewater and power & energy industries.


“The business has grown steadily in Malaysia over the past 15 years. Malaysia is one of the most important markets in Southeast Asia and it boasts tremendous potential that we plan on exploiting further. With the new facility we have created an excellent foundation to pursue this goal,” says Tony Jacobsen, Corporate Sales Director for the Asia-Pacifi c region. Endress+Hauser places high value on customer and market intimacy and continually strengthens its sales and production network with investments such as those in Malaysia. The company spent nearly 150 million euros on new buildings, equipment, software and IT infrastructure in 2016.


Funding Secured to Develop New Sensor Technology for Safe

Shale Gas Extraction An exciting new project to develop a system for safe shale gas drilling in Europe – that is being delivered by a consortium comprising TWI Ltd (UK), Danish Technological Institute (Denmark), ZELENA INFRASTRUKTURA (Croatia), HGL Dynamics Limited (UK) and META Group S.R.L. (Italy) – has recently commenced and will run for a two-year period.

The technology at the heart of the ShaleSafe project will enable the identifi cation and exposure of underground water held in aquifers that has been contaminated by chemicals related to shale gas exploration and management. This will be achieved by developing an automated system incorporating sensors that will continuously detect in-situ methane and organic compounds, including the additives used in hydraulic fracturing, and enable the quality of the underground water to be constantly monitored. In turn, this means that the operator can immediately be alerted when pollution is detected.


The natural gas produced within shale gas plays, also known as formations, presents different technical and environmental challenges when compared to conventional gas plays. The key issue causing concern is related to the use of a process known as hydraulic fracturing, or ‘fracking’, in which a mixture of water, sand and chemicals is pumped under high pressure into the underground layer in order to break apart the rock and release the gas.


The main environmental impacts in relation to shale gas extraction include underground water contamination; water abstraction; greenhouse gas emissions; and its potential effect on landscapes and local communities. The most imminent challenge for the oil and gas industry in Europe is to be able to demonstrate and guarantee, safe shale gas exploration and extraction in order to address the associated environmental concerns.


Underground aquifers can become contaminated by methane and chemicals used during the fracking process. Currently, possible pollution is detected by taking samples at monitoring wells and analysing them in a laboratory. However, the process of collecting, preparing and transporting groundwater samples is prone to errors and, most importantly, analysing them can take several weeks, allowing pollution to go undetected for some time.


Amina Boughrara Salman, Senior Project Leader and ShaleSafe Project Co-ordinator at TWI explains ‘There is an industry wide need to develop and implement technologies that can continuously, reliably and cost effectively monitor environmental risks related to the exploration and production of shale gas.’ ‘Therefore, the ShaleSafe project aims to provide shale gas exploration companies with a system that will enable them to meet the requirements of compulsory environmental impact assessment regulations in respect of sub-surface operations.’


The ShaleSafe project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 691527.

43370pr@reply-direct.com 43438pr@reply-direct.com Flow-Cal’s President, Michael Squyres,


Serves as President of the 2017 ASGMT Flow-Cal, Inc. the market leader in measurement data management for natural gas and petroleum liquids, announces that Flow-Cal’s President, Michael Squyres, has been appointed to serve as the President of the Board of Directors for the 2017 ASGMT (American School of Gas Measurement Technology). ASGMT is the largest gas measurement school in the United States devoted to natural gas and natural gas liquid measurement, pressure regulation, fl ow control and other measurement related arenas.


Squyres has served on the General Committee for 20 years and on the Board of Directors since 2013. During his tenure on the board, Squyres has been instrumental in a number of growth initiatives. Since 2013, ASGMT expanded their curriculum to introduce a track dedicated to natural gas liquids (NGLs), achieved record turnout by hosting over 1,200 attendees, and celebrated their 50th anniversary.


Additionally during this time, ASGMT formed a special training track on Gas Flow Measurement Fundamentals. This new curriculum is customized specifi cally for ASGMT to offer a fl ow measurement certifi cation for fi eld and offi ce personnel.


“I’m honored to serve as the President for this year’s school,” said Michael Squyres, Flow-Cal’s President. “As one of the premier hydrocarbon measurement schools in the country, it’s been our focus to expand the curriculum to keep pace with the exciting changes going on in our industry. It’s rewarding to see all we’ve accomplished in just a few short years.”


Squyres and his company, Flow-Cal, have been active supporters of ASGMT for over 20 years. Flow-Cal’s subject matter experts lead multiple hands-on courses, classroom lectures, and participate in the industry exhibits. In addition to his commitment to the board and committee, Squyres also serves as an instructor at the annual measurement school.


Squyres is an innovator in the fi eld of hydrocarbon measurement with nearly 30 years of experience in designing and developing measurement software applications. As the President of Flow-Cal, Inc., he has worked directly with SCADA vendors, meter manufacturers and standards organizations to pioneer better ways to validate, calculate and report measurement data. He is an active and voting member of the American Petroleum Institute (API) where he participates in a number of their standards initiatives.
