Siemens not only can supply compression modules, but also fully assembled, turnkey compression stations for both offshore and onshore requirements of the oil and gas industry. They include Siemens compressors and drives — typically gas turbines or electric motors — plus controls and other auxiliaries. Siemens can also provide integration services to local utilities and other offsite systems as well as associated civil works.
All compression station components are perfectly matched to work seamlessly in meeting the most rigorous customer demands, often in some of the world’s harshest environments. This means they are designed, engineered, manufactured, and tested to optimize overall system performance and reliability for continuous trouble-free operation. Siemens knowledge of large-scale compressor component interactions, especially those of rotating parts, is especially valuable and comes from decades of experience in this field.
Benefits of a Siemens sole-source compressor station are project simplification, convenience, less risk, and significant savings in schedule and costs. After all, sole-sourcing makes procurement much easier and reduces the number of vendors involved, eliminating integration headaches and finger-pointing. It also better enables comprehensive, end-to-end lifecycle management of the compression station asset. In turn, this approach saves project and manpower requirements, while reducing schedule risk and costs associated with integration, testing, and sparing. It can also help lower total cost of ownership, boosting return on invested capital over time.
