Flow-Cal, Inc’s President, Michael Squyres, has been appointed to serve as the President of the Board of Directors for the 2017 American School of Gas Measurement Technology (ASGMT), the largest gas measurement school in the United States devoted to natural gas and natural gas liquid measurement, pressure regulation, flow control and other measurement related arenas.
Squyres has served on ASGMT’s 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, 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 specifically for ASGMT to offer a flow measurement certification for field and office personnel.
“I’m honored to serve as the President for this year’s school,” said Squyres. “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.”
In addition to serving on ASGMT’s General Committee and Board of Directors, Squyres also serves as an instructor at the annual measurement school.
