Sponsorship and Exhibition Opportunties

Interested in Sponsoring? Join a select group of sponsors and engage with attendees who will be exploring our new energy future.

For more information about sponsorship opportunities, please contact the team at
[email protected]. Download the Brochure.

Call for Papers

Be part of our conferences promoting a new energy future and the transition of our industry towards that future. We are looking for stories about the development of technology and best practices affecting Natural Gas processing. As well as a look at Hydrogen, Biogas, Ammonia, Carbon Capture and Storage, and LNG amongst others, to inspire the gas processing community.

Do you have a story to tell? All we need is a 100-200-word abstract. Send your abstract - Title, Author to
[email protected]

It will be reviewed by our Technical Committee and, if accepted, we can help you to develop it into a technical paper and presentation.

Each year we present an award at our AGM for the best paper. The Best Paper Award is selected by our conference attendees and is based on the feedback scores received.
The Aungier Award is for the best paper presented by one of our Young Professionals at our conferences. The winner is decided by our Technical Committee. Alongside the award, the winner will get £1,000!

Could this be you?

As further details become available for our 2023 Events, we bring you essential updates and what else to look out for in 2023.

Stay involved with us in 2023, membership renewals for 2023 have all been sent out and we look forward to seeing you at one of our virtual events, and hopefully conference, this year!

Our November 2022 Issue of In Brief is out on the streets - Check it out!

This issue reports on the GPA Europe Technical Conference held in London in May 2022 as well as our Webinars.

We have our regular 'View from the Top' by our Chairperson Gary Bowerbank, discussing 'Getting back to 'Normal'".

The lead article has been contributed by David Simmonds. The article is titled 'The Industry's Case for the Renationalisation of Consumer Energy Markets'. We would love to hear your thoughts and any comments you may have.

Paper of the Month

This month we are looking back to a paper from Taek-Joong Kim, SINTEF Industry. Presented at our Annual Conference November 2023.

"Qualification of Membranes for Subsea CO2 Separation Based on Tests from Lab Scale to Small-Industrial Scale"

"COMPMEM is a joint industrial project initiated by Aker Carbon Capture (ACC) aiming at the validation and pilot scale demonstration of membrane-based process for subsea CO2 separation. The separated CO2 is to be reinjected to increase recovery rates in offshore oil and gas fields.

Firstly , four membrane qualities have been tested in the lab scale at the conditions relevant to subsea gas separation – within the broad range of temperature (40-90 oC), feed (35-90 bar) and permeate (2-35 bar) gas pressures, and CO2 content in the feed gas (10-90%). To cover such a broad range of operating conditions with minimum possible number of experiments, statistical design of experiments principle was applied.

Based on the results from these experiments and compatibility testing of the membrane materials and potting materials with harsh conditions potentially present at sub-sea conditions, only two membrane qualities were selected for further testing in small-industrial scale rig built at SINTEF.

Results from the lab-scale testing of the membrane performance and description of the pilot scale test rig and its test results will be presented."
