With a background in borehole logging measurement and liquid, gas, and multiphase flow measurement, Chip has deep knowledge of oilfield measurement technology in both the pipeline and upstream environments. His experience in research and product development of measurement instrumentation and data acquisition systems brings a much-valued perspective to the practical challenges of measurement. Chip has domain knowledge of measurement systems on land, offshore, downhole, and subsea, and he has put these to use in his experience writing engineering standards and recommended practices. Chip also has a unique experience and ability managing jointly sponsored projects for technology research and development.

After earning his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Tech, Chip began his career at the US Naval Electronics Laboratory Center where he led a project team developing the Navy's first ship-to-ship laser communication system. Chip’s focus turned to the oilfield where, at Schlumberger, he worked in corporate research and led a number of acoustic, nuclear and electromagnetic well logging product developments, and managed the development of the MAXIS 500, a major advance in well logging data acquisition capability. At Daniel Industries (a division of Emerson) Chip was VP of Technology during the period when products such as the Senior Sonic ultrasonic flow meter, Danalyzer Pro on-line gas chromatograph and the MEGRA multiphase flow meter were developed. Chip co-founded the Letton Hall Group in 2001.


Chip has been married for nearly forty-seven years. He has a daughter, a son, and two grandchildren. Chip is active in several Episcopalian Ministries. He enjoys hunting, fly fishing, golf, is a former tennis enthusiast, and likes staying up to date with current events.
