Pipeline Simulation Interest Group (PSIG) Offers Annual Educational Scholarships to Students
The Pipeline Simulation Interest Group, (PSIG), is proud to announce the offering of two annual educational scholarships honoring two dedicated members of the PSIG board; Orin Flanigan and Don Schroeder.
PSIG was founded in 1969, and is known as the premier organization facilitating the interchange of information and ideas related to the advancement of the state-of-the-art in the areas of modeling, simulation, optimization, transient flow and multi-phase flow, as applied to gas, liquid, and multi-phase pipeline systems. PSIG’s membership spans the globe.
Orin and Don have each contributed more than forty years of service to the oil and gas industry, to the general advancement of pipeline simulation, and to PSIG.
Orin Flanigan is a recognized pioneer in the study of multiphase flow being credited with the development of unique correlations that help analyze the flow in pipelines. He is the author of Underground Gas Storage Facilities: Design and Implementation  and has served on the PSIG board from 1973-2002 as Chairman and more recently as Chairman Emeritus. He has M.Sc. degrees in both Chemical Engineering and Gas Technology.
Don Schroeder, formerly with Stoner Associates/Advantica/GL Noble Denton (now DNV GL) and an outstanding contributor in the areas of steady state network modeling, has served on the PSIG Board from 1971-2012 as Secretary, Chairman, and Treasurer. His career includes a B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering from Carnegie Institute of Technology followed by 12 years with the Columbia Gas System in various capacities leading toward corporate modeling, before 34 years with Stoner Associates/Advantica/GL Noble Denton as principle technical author of all gas modeling software among other duties. Outside of Engineering, Don has maintained a dual career performing on the French Horn with his local professional Symphony Orchestra and Opera company.
The Orin Flanigan Scholarship and the Don Schroeder Scholarship, each in the amount of US $5,000, will be awarded annually to research students who distinguish themselves in the advancement of pipeline simulation.
