The Donald L. Katz Award is named in honor of the highly esteemed Professor Emeritus of the University of Michigan.
It was initiated in 1985 to recognize outstanding accomplishments in midstream research and technology, and/or for excellence in engineering education. Dr. Katz has been closely associated with GPA Midstream and the natural gas and gas industry during all of his long and distinguished career. He and his students developed much of the classic data and many of the correlations that are essential to understanding the science and engineering of light hydrocarbon production and processing. He was the 1950 recipient of the GPA Midstream Hanlon Award, the first of some 21 major scientific honors and awards received during his career.
The award, symbolized by a wall plaque bearing an engraved likeness of Dr. Katz, is not an annual event, but is conferred as deemed appropriate by GPA Midstream research leaders and the Awards Committee. It is given out at the opening General Session of the GPA Midstream Convention.
GPA Midstream awarded its first Katz recipients in 1985. For recipients between 1985 - 1990, contact GPA Midstream
