Proud of our people: scooping not just one but two API awards

March 16, 2022 | Written by: Sensia

At Sensia, we are always proud when our people are nominated for industry awards. But when those awards come from the prestigious American Petroleum Institute, it makes it extra special.
Gary Potten, Director of Engineering, and Dr Gregor Brown, Measurement Engineering Advisor, have been part of some exceptional work, winning the Certificate of Appreciation and the New Member Impact Award respectively. 
Currently chairman of the Chapter 8 Sampling Suite of Standards, Gary recently led the development of the Standard API MPMS Chapter 8.6, which outlines the procedural steps required to accurately measure the quality of liquified natural gas. The Certificate of Appreciation is the second-highest award issued by the API, and it has been presented every year for the last 75 years. 
“It’s a real honour to have been awarded this certificate by the API, especially given the high calibre of other nominees. I’d like to recognize all of the other contributors for their own hard work and dedication.” (Gary Potten)
The second award goes to Dr Gregor Brown, for his work as part of the Drafting Group for the revision of the API Manual of Petroleum Measurement Standards Chapter 5.8 ‘Measurement of Liquid Hydrocarbons by Ultrasonic Flow Meters Using Transit Time Technology’. The New Member Impact Award is presented to more recent members of the API and recognises the contribution made within their associated committees and groups. 
The API is the global leader in convening subject matter experts across segments to establish and maintain consensus standards for the oil and gas industry. It is the dedication of our people, working with institutions such as the API, that enables us to further strengthen our market-leading expertise and solutions offering. 
Congratulations to Gary and Gregor from everybody at Sensia.
