The Future Role of Oil & Gas

With automated digital solutions, Siemens is working with the oil and gas industry across Australia and New Zealand to plan today for a stronger, more efficient tomorrow.

Smart solutions to big challenges

Today, as ever, the oil and gas market is volatile. While the industry grapples with major changes and tough decisions, Siemens experts urge businesses to look beyond this and prepare for a different future.

Oil is still Australia’s largest primary energy source (at 37% in 2015-16), and natural gas, the cleanest fossil energy source, will continue to grow in significance. In fact, Australia is expected to become the world’s largest exporter of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) within the next few years.

Globally, too, oil and gas will remain the backbone of our energy supply for decades to come. However, as existing operating models are increasingly challenged, new approaches are being sought to respond to market dynamics, environmental concerns, and the high costs of developing unconventional resources.

These issues are driving technological innovation that can help the industry to keep costs low, while improving safety, reliability and efficiency.

Helping you to solve today’s challenges

How will your business survive today's challenging oil price environment? At the forefront of technological innovation for the oil and gas industry, Siemens is transforming operational performance across the entire value chain with automated and digitalized solutions.

Start-to-finish solutions

Delivering one solution for the entire value chain – from production to transportation to processing – increases productivity and makes businesses more competitive in an over-supplied market.

Siemens has invested more than 40 years in adding value, efficiency and innovation to the oil and gas industry. Following the acquisition of Dresser-Rand and the Rolls-Royce Energy gas turbine and compressor business, Siemens has completed the loop on its portfolio to act as a single-source supplier to the industry for all mission-critical technology.

Our aim is to better support customers in the Pacific region who want to improve their businesses with digitalisation and automation but need to reduce their project risk and total-cost-of-ownership.
