Houston, TX

Siemens announces that the company, along with newly acquired Dresser-Rand business, will showcase its combined capabilities for the oil and gas sector during the upcoming  Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston (May 2 – 5).  Siemens Process Industries & Drives Division CEO Dr. Juergen Brandes and Siemens Process Solutions CEO Mikael Leksell will participate in the conference, which will also include industry experts from Siemens and Dresser-Rand.

Siemens offers a complete spectrum of products, services and solutions for upstream, midstream and downstream. The Siemens portfolio includes motor and drive systems, automation technology, and advanced industrial software to improve the safety and security of today’s oil and gas operations while reducing engineering,  operating and capital costs.  Last year, Siemens announced the opening of its Oil & Gas Headquarters in Houston.

Siemens’ main booth will feature subject matter experts from a wide range of industry disciplines, available to explain the company’s extensive technology portfolio. The booth also will include an X-pert Center, where speakers are set to present more than 20 technical presentations from Monday to Thursday in several major categories including: offshore solutions, digitalization, HSSE solutions and midstream solutions. The X-pert Center will include presentations from the company’s subsea portfolio, including a virtual tour of the subsea power grid, which Siemens is actively developing.  This unique technology holds the potential to make previously unrecoverable resources recoverable. The company will also highlight smarter pump stations for pipelines, and the power of its remote diagnostics portfolio in improving turbine performance.

For the first time, the Dresser-Rand business, part of Siemens Power and Gas Division, is a leading supplier of mission-critical, high-speed rotating equipment solutions to the worldwide oil, gas, petrochemical, and process industries. Dresser-Rand will join Siemens in the main booth at OTC. Together with Siemens, the combined businesses offer innovative, responsive solutions for the growing offshore business. With the recent acquisitions of Dresser-Rand and the operating assets of Rolls Royce Energy, Siemens created the industry’s most comprehensive portfolio of high-speed rotating equipment and services for customers in the oil and gas, process and power industries. Customers now have more choices available to them from a single supplier, with access to a larger product and service portfolio that covers the entire value chain. Visitors to the booth (4424) can learn more about the company’s combined portfolio of products and services. Siemens will also have an outside display at booth 13321.

During the technical sessions at OTC, Siemens will present a paper related to its subsea offering entitled Technology for Extension of Lifetime on Wednesday, May 4, 4:12 - 4:20 p.m. in Room 602 during the Wireless Communication and Radio Frequency Identification Technologies section of the technical program.
