Our task: provide reliable technology for safe operations

Underground gas storage facilities are an essential part of all natural gas planning and logistics. For a safe and economical operation, Siemens offers packages with integrated automation and control solutions for loading and unloading storage plants and storage tanks.

Like underground gas storage, tank farms and terminals can help reduce the impact of demand spikes – one reason why they are becoming an increasingly important energy trading tool. Siemens storage solutions can simplify tank farm and terminal operations and reduce operating costs.
