Wet Gas Test Facility Operations Manager

Josh Kinney
Josh came to CEESI in 1992 after completing course work in Mechanical Engineering. He started with CEESI in 1992 as a flow measurement technician, and has since gained experience in the operation of many test areas. In 1997, he became involved with final construction of the Wet Gas Test Facility (WGTF). Subsequently, he started the single-phase flow meter Joint Industry Project in the WGTF. He aided in the design and construction of the three-phase flow capability upgrade in the CEESI Wet Gas Test Facility in 2007. Since 2008, Josh has executed the multiphase flow meter Joint Test Program (JTP), as well as, aided in the design and construction of the 8 inch Test Facility and the CEESI Single Pass Test Facility. Josh also helped planned and implement the gas loop upgrade which allowed the facility to handle custom liquid mixtures. He has written and presented many papers at both ISHM and ASGMT, and has served as Deputy Chair of the program committee at Appalachian Gas Measurement Short Course. He has received training in the operation of SICK, Daniel, and Micro Motion meters. He has also received training as an "Individual User" for radioactive material handling from Colorado State University. As the manager of the Wet gas facility, Josh interacts with customers to develop test plans, develops and implement piping plans, develops and implements wiring plans, monitors data collections, and trains new employees as needed.
