C-SMART Analytics, the leader in natural gas measurement diagnostics monitoring, analytics and maintenance by exception technology, today announced that it is hosting the C-SMART Analytics User Group Meeting on March 8 & 9 in The Woodlands, Texas. The inaugural event brings together users of C-SMART Analytics’ real time natural gas measurement monitoring solution with partners to discuss industry trends, present case studies, and train users on the latest C-SMART Analytics software features. The user conference is open at no cost to anyone interested in learning more about the industry’s lost and unaccounted for (LAUF) natural gas challenge and how C-SMART Analytics reduces the average LAUF error rate by 80%.
“Strong global demand, complexities of transporting natural gas to market, and new environmental policies make C-SMART’s mission to maximize measurement certainty by detecting, quantifying, and eliminating errors more important than ever,” said Ernie Hauser, president and co-founder of C-SMART Analytics. “As C-SMART’s customer base rapidly expands and more customers benefit from our service, the time is right to bring our users together to share best practices and shape the future of C-SMART at our inaugural user group meeting.”
The C-SMART Analytics natural gas monitoring platform is a first of its kind cloud-based solution designed to monitor ultrasonic meters and other measurement equipment in real time to eliminate LAUF errors. The technology has been rapidly adopted by companies across the natural gas supply chain, including 5 of the largest pipeline operators in North America. C-SMART Analytics has broad application wherever natural gas is transported or consumed, ensuring accurate gas measurement for service providers to maximize revenue and assisting end-users by eliminating potential overpayments.
Users of C-SMART Analytics’ technology include midstream natural gas processors and transporters, LNG processing plants, power generators, large industrial users, and gas utilities. Attendees of the C-SMART Analytics User Group Meeting will receive the latest report on key C-SMART Analytics performance indicators, including more than 24 trillion cubic feet of natural gas monitored to-date and $61M saved by customers in the last 5 years by reducing LAUF errors. Case studies will be presented by C-SMART Analytics customers detailing measurable business results and users will have the opportunity to provide direct input into the product roadmap.
C-SMART Analytics partners will also provide their industry perspectives, including Stonebridge Consulting, an operations optimization consultancy dedicated to the energy industry who will present on upstream and midstream digital trends in response to ESG. An energy policy consultancy, Adamantine Energy, will also provide an update on emerging ESG challenges, including the methane fee recently introduced in the Inflation Reduction Act.
