GAS Analysis 2017 offered a 3-day symposium in two parallel sessions covering four main themes. The symposium provided a unique opportunity to exchange knowledge and to collect information on market and research developments in the field of gas analysis.

The organisation would like to thank all authors who submitted an abstract for a lecture or poster presentation. The Scientific Committee had a challenging job to review all the abstracts. Based on the accepted lectures, another high-quality symposium programme has been compiled. The outline of the programme is shown below. The full programme including all lectures is available as download. The abstracts and a short bio of the speakers has been made available through this website as well as via the event’s network app for registered participants.


Opening and keynote speakers

Participants of GAS Analysis 2017 were welcomed by Liesbeth Jansen, chairperson of NEN Energy Policy Committee, that is also looking after the standardisation activities on analysis of gases.

After her welcome address, Rolf Brouwer, Managing Director of Gate Terminal, provided the opening speech. Gate Terminal is the first LNG import terminal of the Netherlands located at the Maasvlakte as part of the Port of Rotterdam, and they recently celebrated the opening of their third berth and new special infrastructure for the loading of small LNG vessels (read press release).

After this opening speech, Adriaan van der Veen, Chairperson of ISO/TC 158 “Analysis of gases”, demonstrated how international standards developed by this technical committee create impact by improving reliability and accuracy of results in his opening lecture.

We were also pleased that the following speakers provided a keynote at GAS Analysis 2017 to kick-off one of the sessions:

Poster session

The GAS Analysis 2017 programme offered a dedicated poster session halfway the event. Several experts showed their research work that is considered not (yet) feasible for a lecture or is in the start-up phase. They informed international colleagues on this matter and discussed with the participants their ideas. The poster section on this website provides more information about the posters that has been presented.
