58th Annual Gas Compressor Institute Coming To Liberal

KSCB News - April 7, 2010 12:00 am

2010 Keynote Speaker-Marita Noon

As the Executive Director of CARE (Citizens’ Alliance for Responsible

Energy), Marita Noon has quickly become known in the energy industry as a

powerful voice advocating for the industry and citizens’ right to energy

that is abundant, available and affordable. CARE is associated with the New

Mexico Oil & Gas Industry and its platform is the general statement: Energy

Makes America Great! Marita’s pro-energy commentaries have been published

in newspapers and industry publications from coast-to-coast and online

commentary sites world-wide. Marita is a published author and has served as

the president of a communications company.

This year’s conference offers a unique opportunity for technicians to

participate in the following classes: CATERPILLAR Gas Engine Technology;

ARIEL Factory Training; Hands-On training in Basic Electronics and

Compressor Panel Repair; Drive Selection and Maintenance; Laser Alignment;

Air Fuel Ratio; and Reading and Understanding Engineering Drawings. The

Caterpillar and Ariel classes will begin Monday the 19th, at 1:00 pm, all

day Tuesday, and ending Wednesday the 21st at 4:00 pm. Pre-registration is

required for the Caterpillar class; seating is limited for both classes.

“We know everyone in our industry is busy and fewer people are expected to

do more work, many times with fewer resources,” said GCI Chairman Ken Croy.

“We think this slate of courses and Liberal’s location provides a win/win

for users in our 5-State Region. Some of these courses would normally

require a lengthy and expensive trip to a factory somewhere. Having these

sessions right here in Southwest Kansas makes optimum use of your training

dollar.”

An integral part of the Institute is the 7th Annual Breeze Masters Golf

Tournament. This is a four-person scramble format and an opportunity to

enjoy yourself on Monday the 19th. This will be held a Liberal’s premier

Willow Tree Golf Course, with lunch provided by Cameron Compression Services

and Reynolds-French & Company. For more information on Breeze Masters or

hole sponsorships, contact Cody Long at 806-595-0622.

Funds generated by sponsorships and attendance at the Institute provide

scholarships at Seward County Community College/Area Technical School for

students who are interested in the oil and gas industry.
