Our task: cater to the special needs of pipeline operators

Pipelines are indispensable for the safe, reliable, and efficient transportation of oil and gas and represent a fundamental lifeline for every national economy. Siemens provides the customer with integrated solutions for pipeline machinery, automation, electrical, security, and communication systems.

This enables Siemens to supply true one-stop solutions, which make a decisive contribution to the optimization of the total cost of ownership. The Siemens portfolio can provide up to 38% of CAPEX for gas pipelines and 20% for liquid pipelines.

Our goal: maximum performance and minimum total costs

From engineering and design to all core technologies and all the way to monitoring and control, we are there to make pipelines sustainably safe and economical. Our primary aim is to ensure maximum performance and minimum total cost of ownership throughout the entire lifecycle of a pipeline. Siemens supplies an extensive portfolio for the entire process chain of pipelines: compression and pumping, power generation and distribution, automation, telecommunications, industrial IT, safety, and lifecycle services.

leak detection

Looking ahead: proven leak detection

The Siemens pipeline leak detection system (LDS) offers a complete software and hardware solution for liquid pipelines. LDS uses ultrasonic clamp-on flow meters mounted directly on the pipeline segments and monitored by the software. This enables the operator to quickly and reliably detect and localize pipeline leaks. For optimal efficiency, LDS employs adjustable thresholds to alert the operator when attention is required.

SCADA

Running high: the pipeline at peak efficiency levels

SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) solutions from Siemens enable optimum pipeline control, the integration of all subsystems, and the seamless integration into superordinate (MES, MIS). This secures reliable, system-wide integration of all data, its intelligent preparation, and the optimal control of your pipeline.

Comprehensive management: our business concept “Main Motors and Drives Contractor” (MMDC)

From the first feasibility study at the outset through to commissioning, most oil and gas projects require large capital expenditures and years of project implementation. Throughout this process, the project’s progress may be impaired by multiple challenges. To manage these, Siemens has developed the MMDC concept. It is a comprehensive concept that enables us to assume responsibility for the project’s overall success – from the feasibility study through planning to the technical realization of all rotating equipment and the power supply, automation, and electric equipment.
