“I’m excited to join the W Energy Software management team and eager to get to work spearheading a new generation of software to track, validate, balance, and report hydrocarbons across the value chain, built by a measurement user for measurement users,” said Stephen Anson, W Energy Software’s new Director of Measurement. “Historically there has only been one option for measurement data management; this created an opportunity to serve the industry by providing a choice that is innovative and impactful, which is why we are setting out to redefine measurement data management with a new generation platform built on the cloud that is fast, accurate, and reliable,” he said, adding, “I look forward to forging a strong relationship with our Measurement Product Consortium members to ensure that industry needs are represented and continuously aligned with product features.”
