Wireless Tank Gauging Tech Talk Offered During Showcase of Oil & Gas Innovations
METAIRIE, LA.—Dec. 3, 2019—M S Benbow & Associates (MSB) engineering experts gave a technology talk on “Reliable Performance Through Wireless Tank Gauging” during LAGCOE, a biennial conference of the onshore and offshore oil/gas exploration and production industry. Presented by the nonprofit energy industry organization Louisiana Gulf Coast Oil Exposition, LAGCOE is one of the world’s premiere oil and gas expositions featuring innovative equipment, services, technology, and presentations from worldwide leaders. The 2019 expo was the first show held in New Orleans since its founding in Lafayette 64 years ago, and the city also is scheduled to host LAGCOE 2021.
MSB President Leo Holzenthal, Jr., PE, and Instrumentation & Control Systems Manager Ronald Ledet offered the Technology Talk on wireless tank gauging during the three-day conference. Their presentation highlighted how upgrading low-performing mechanical systems into fully integrated wireless and fiber gauge performance systems improves efficiency and accuracy by providing data from tanks previously out of reach.
“We were excited to participate in LAGCOE, particularly as our home town was hosting the conference for the first time,” Holzenthal said. “The aim of the show is to cultivate economic growth of the energy industry while showcasing the Gulf Coast’s technical innovations to the world.
