GPA Europe December 2021 Newsletter
A message from our Chairperson, Gary Bowerbank.
" As we fast approach the end of the year, our recent AGM was a great opportunity to reflect on 2021. We continued our virtual webinar series and held our first virtual conference over two days, covering a many of the critical topics facing our industry (see the upcoming In Brief for more detailed look-back). It is clear that while conventional natural gas remains essential for day-to-day life in Europe, the move to other energy sources (H2, biogas, etc.) will accelerate. This represents an opportunity for our members, as many of these Future Energy solutions still utilise gas molecules and will still require many of the existing Gas Processing steps (treating, compression, separation, liquefaction, etc.). There is still a bright future for GPA Europe.
Speaking of the future, don’t forget membership renewals will be out today. We are here for our members and value all the support we receive.
As ever, we would like to hear from you and welcome any feedback, feel free to connect via social media (Linked-In, Facebook, Twitter) or reach out to [email protected]."
Thank you from GPA Europe
A big thank you to all delegates and speakers who attended our Technical Conference & AGM 2021. We had a morning of high-quality technical papers, providing thought provoking discussions. Our AGM followed with Gary Bowerbank presenting an overview of 2021, from our Virtual Event Series to our first Virtual 2-day conference. This conference gave us insight into interesting areas which are not the traditional Gas Processing focus. At GPA Europe we continue to enable this by connecting the tradition Gas Processing sectors with the emerging Future Energy businesses. October saw the first of our New Energy Webinars which we will continue throughout 2022.
As we bring down the curtain on the GPA Europe Technical Conference and AGM 2021 we are already looking ahead to next year, we will be hosting more Virtual Webinars on the future energy areas, as well as 2 face to face conferences. By working together, learning from each other and investing in the right areas we can meet the energy demands of the future without compromising the present.

Paper of the Month
This month we are looking back to one of our Best Paper Award Winners from Christian Bladanet, TechnipEnergies. Presented at our Spring Conference 2019.
"After four years of development, the Yamal LNG plant is now producing at full capacity. From design to operation, through construction, module shipment and commissioning, this article will share some insight of the extraordinary journey of the project, and how a wild white land was turned into a profitable and sustainable plant. Finally, the methodology to validate the operation beyond its nameplate capacity, taking advantage of the coolest months of the year will be described. Through insight of the challenges tackled and amazing pictures of some of the largest modules shipped through the Northern Sea Route, the authors will share some of the passion that made this project come true."
