The Upstream Production Measurement Forum (UPM) emerged out of the oil and gas production engineer’s need for better production data. By bringing data users together with measurement developers and suppliers, and government regulators, the UPM created a unique forum to effectively convey and debate our successes and challenges in the ways measurement is used in contemporary production applications, and to identify the gaps where further development is valued. The format included a day of lecture on the fundamentals of the selected topics, followed by a one-day forum with paper presentations and interactive discussion. The latest market offerings were showcased in a small exhibition. The event engendered knowledge sharing, healthy technical debate, and professional networking.
