Gas Certification Institute (GCI), a leader in oil and gas measurement, standard operating procedures, and training, announces the addition of Weldon Wright as General Manager.
Wright brings 30+ years of experience in natural gas measurement, liquid measurement, SCADA, control systems, and operations. He is a proven measurement and business leader who has successfully developed and managed measurement and SCADA teams across the production, midstream, transmission, and public utility sectors.
As General Manager, Wright will lead the expansion of GCI offerings into field operations software to support the measurement operations needs of GCI’s oil and gas customers. Wright has a keen understanding of the interrelationship between measurement disciplines and the complexity of their successful, cost-effective implementation.
“I am thrilled to join GCI at a time when we can create value for oil and gas operators through the implementation of mobile-centric field operations,” says Wright. “I look forward to sharing my experience in implementing technology, balancing expenditures, lean staffing, and regulatory compliance — while assuring management confidence in measurement accuracy and operations effectiveness.”
Supporting GCI’s Mission to Streamline Operations
GCI strives to assist oil and gas companies achieve accuracy and consistency in measurement through standard operating procedures, training, and software tools. The GCI approach provides an ideal foundation for measurement, through consistency leading to accuracy.
Wright is charged with defining the approach to delivering our mission to optimize the human element of measurement within an operations framework, creating value for companies by supporting their revenue-generating activity. Our foundational framework includes:
- Measurement standard operating procedures (SOPs) that capture “how” measurement should be performed.
- Measurement training classes that build measurement understanding (why) and competencies (what).
- Measurement software tools that streamline measurement processes and create consistent and timely records.
In 2020, GCI entered into a joint venture with Muddy Boots Online to deliver cloud-based field operations software to oil and gas operators. The software directly supports the implementation of measurement SOPs, and the software natively creates records supporting conformance to regulations.
“The addition of Weldon Wright to the GCI team is a significant step forward enabling GCI to assist oil and gas operators to implement cloud-based field operations tools and streamline their field operations,” says Russel Treat, CEO of EnerACT Energy Services, Inc. “Wright’s expertise, combined with the state-of-the-art Muddy Boots Online toolset, will be of great value to GCI and their customers.”
