Siemens executives will discuss how digitalization and technology innovation are making oil and gas operations safer, more efficient and more reliable during the upcoming CERAWeek global energy conference in Houston – focusing on how the company’s digital solutions can help the industry reduce costs and enhance operational efficiency.

With oil and gas companies producing large amounts of data from hardware and process-related activities, Siemens’ digital solution portfolio ranges from early feed to abandonment, helping customers collect and convert data into real-time knowledge for faster, smarter decision making. Siemens’ powerful software solutions optimize performance across the oil and gas value chain – from automated process analysis to seamless data integration, remote monitoring, preemptive maintenance, and simulated training.

Joe Kaeser, President and CEO of Siemens AG, and Lisa Davis, CEO Global Energy and Member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG, will be among the company’s featured speakers during the weeklong gathering. Judy Marks, CEO Siemens USA, will participate in a panel focused on fuel choices and technologies for tomorrow’s power business. Additionally, several Siemens executives representing a range of the company’s energy and technology business units will participate in CERAWeek’s Technology Agora sessions to explore the role of digitalization and technology innovation in the energy landscape.

Siemens will also participate in CERAWeek’s Technology Agora showcase, which puts a spotlight on the role of technology and innovation in the global energy future.
