TUALATIN, Ore., May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CUI Global, Inc. (NASDAQ: CUI), a platform company dedicated to the acquisition, development, and commercialization of new, innovative products and technologies, today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Orbital-UK, and its worldwide distribution partner, BWG/Blue Flame, will present and exhibit at the upcoming International Natural Gas Symposium 2013 (INGAS 2013) show to be held on May 29-30, 2013 in Istanbul, Turkey.
First organized by Turkey's leading natural gas distributor, Istanbul Gas Distribution Company (IGDAS), in 2005, INGAS is one of the most broadly-participated organizations in the natural gas industry. The industry's leading companies from as many as 25 countries are expected to attend and participate in INGAS 2013, where incomparable sectoral issues such as the general view of energy in the world, latest R&D in the natural gas industry and new technologies will be discussed and presented.
CUI Global's Lead Engineer, Terry Williams, has been personally invited by the INGAS Organizing Committee to be a "Distinguished Speaker" at the event. Mr. Williams will be presenting a 'White Paper' regarding the GasPT2 Technology and GasPTi device. The presentation will describe the design, development, certification, testing, field trials and implementation of the GasPT2 Technology across Europe and the Americas.
Mr. Williams, a 40-year Chartered Engineer with experience at, among others, British Gas, BG Technology, National Grid, Advantica and GL Nobel-Denton, managing the development and implementation of new technology for offshore and onshore gas processing, transmission and utilization, has an international reputation and is highly regarded in the specialized field of natural gas metering. He was one of the original designers of the GasPT2 Technology and is a Fellow of the UK Institution of Gas Engineers & Managers. Mr. Williams has also served as Vice-Chairman of GERG – the European Gas Research Group.
In conjunction with the show and Mr. Williams' presentation, CUI Global's worldwide distribution partner, BWG/Blue Flame, will be holding a reception at the host hotel, Grand Hotel Tarabya, to individually present the GasPTi device to some of the industry's leading professionals.
As explained by Blue Flame's chief executive officer, Patrick Campos, "Our appearance at this prestigious event with Terry [Williams] and the Orbital Team will significantly further our efforts to penetrate this very strategic Turkish gas market. In addition, we expect representatives from such important natural gas and energy markets as Germany, Austria, USA, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, China, Denmark, France, India, the Netherlands, Hong Kong, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Japan, Canada, Korea, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Kosovo, Macedonia, and more to be in attendance at the symposium."
"The great interest demonstrated by the Ministry of Energy of Turkey, as well as by several leading private natural gas companies and the preeminent natural gas equipment testing laboratory in Turkey, further validates the GasPT2 Technology and helps ensure its eventual implementation by this key market and strategic region in the Eurasian natural gas industry," concluded Campos.
According to Bilal Aslan, IGDAS's general manager, "The forthcoming symposium to be held by IGDAS in May 2013 in Istanbul will again huddle together the top level representatives of natural gas and energy institutions and enterprises of various countries and executives of the private sector. We suppose that this symposium, where opinions regarding energy and natural gas strategies and investment opportunities are to be presented, will be a cardinal data resource at international scale."
CUI Global's president & chief executive officer, William Clough, stated, "Orbital-UK and Blue Flame will have a significant presence at INGAS 2013 this year. It is a great opportunity for us to present the latest from our GasPTi product line to industry professionals and to showcase its dramatic economic and technical advantages. The Symposium will provide the Company with an opportunity to directly present the technical benefits of its GasPTi device to some of the natural gas and energy industry's leading players."
