IGEM Industrial Affiliate DNV GL hosted a visit from the North East & Yorkshire Section at its Testing and Research Flow Centre, in Bishop Auckland.
The facility undertakes testing and calibration on a wide variety of offshore and onshore metering solutions for the hydrocarbon industry.
The evening was a great success with a full attendance, including one IGEM member who had travelled all the way from Northampton.
After an excellent buffet and an introduction from host and Facility Manager Dave Shepherd, the delegation was split into two groups and given a tour of the facility, taking in high pressure/flow meter calibrations and the rhinology unit.
The groups were also given a general overview of how the site operates in terms of its gas usage for testing.
Then, delegates were shown the different types of meters in use around the world and how they operate.
The Section has run this event before and, due to its popularity, will look to run it every two years. This will ensure new members, or those who missed on this visit, will be given the opportunity to look around this fascinating facility.
