GMRC Gas Machinery Conference

October 1 - 4 | David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Pittsburgh, PA Booth #400
Welcome to the 2017 GMRC Gas Machinery Conference

The power of partnership

Engineering ingenuity   


Making your project a success takes more than just technology. It takes ingenuity — the ingenuity to understand your needs and tailor integrated solutions accordingly. From pipeline compressor and pump stations, to LNG plants, FPSOs, refineries and petrochemical plants, we’ve got you covered. We draw on an extensive equipment portfolio (including turbomachinery, motors, drives and gearboxes), a comprehensive software suite, as well as engineering expertise. And we’ll partner with you every step of the way to ensure your project is a success, from pre-FEED through operations and maintenance. That’s the power of engineering ingenuity.

Key Topics

Turbomachinery, Digitalization, Pipelines + LNG

Turbomachinery: Experience the Power of Choice

When it comes to your rotating equipment needs for oil and gas applications, Siemens has you covered - from FPSOs, to pipeline compressor stations, LNG plants, refineries and total lifecycle service.  Today Siemens has the industry’s largest installed base of rotating equipment. An approximately four-fold increase in installed base was the result of two recent acquisitions: Dresser-Rand, a leading supplier of mission-critical, high-speed rotating equipment solutions (turbo and reciprocating compressors; steam turbines; gas turbines; high-speed engines); and Rolls Royce Energy’s aero-derivative gas turbine business. The combined  business' supports the extensive installed base through post-installation service, and offers customers more choices from a single supplier. In addition, Siemens is a major provider of complementary equipment, including motors, drives and gearboxes and automation systems.

Digitalization: Discover Your Untapped Assets

‘Big Data’ and the ‘Internet of Things’ are driving the rapid pace of digital adoption across multiple industries. Facing a potentially ‘lower for longer’ commodity price scenario, the oil and gas industry is beginning a transformation of its own, increasingly looking toward data-driven solutions to improve their bottom line. Siemens is at the forefront of this trend. With a focus on asset management—from pre-FEED through operations and maintenance—the company is applying software-based solutions to enhance design and manufacturing through advanced virtualization, as well as to optimize the performance of mission-critical equipment through remote monitoring and data analytics.

Siemens built its extensive capabilities through research and development, as well as strategic acquisitions and partnerships with premier technology providers, such as Bentley Systems and Atos. With some of the most recognized names in software for industrial applications (COMOS, Teamcenter and XHQ, to name a few), the company recently released its cloud-based industrial operating platform, MindSphere. Siemens continues to expand its digital offering to meet the evolving needs of its customers, and to help them make effective use of  data - their so called ‘untapped asset'. 


Integrated Pipeline Solutions: Experience 'Peace of Mind'

Pipelines play an indispensable role in the transportation of crude oil, natural gas, liquid petroleum gas and CO2 to key destination markets. We provide engineering services and equipment for pump stations (liquids pipelines) and compressor stations (gas pipelines); our equipment offerings include e-shelters, motors, drives, and compressors. In addition, we offer SCADA, automation, telecommunications and power solutions. And we are developing a unique, data-based solution, ‘Smart Pump’, to optimize pump station performance. With an extensive, global track record as a provider of integrated pipeline solutions, we work closely with our customers to deliver what matters most: safety, efficiency, predictability, reliability, and ultimately, peace of mind. 

Integrated LNG Solutions: Discover the Difference

LNG plants are an economically viable, technically proven method of moving natural gas from remote production locations to distant consumers. Siemens draws on an extensive experience and a breadth of technologies to optimize plant design, construction and performance in any given operating environment. And throughout the process, we partner closely with our customers to understand their needs and tailor our solutions accordingly. Our portfolio includes a wide range of rotating and electrical equipment; power generation, transmission and distribution systems; automation, telecommunications, industrial IT and security support systems; and life-cycle services. Moreover, through a global manufacturing and service network, we ensure maximum customer proximity and local content.

Siemens Digital Solutions for Oil & Gas Applications - discover your untapped assets

Discover how data—an all-too-often untapped resource in the oil and gas industry—helps operators enhance efficiencies and decrease costs. Specifically, Siemens combines a comprehensive software suite, in-depth product and automation knowledge, and extensive data analytics expertise to optimize the management of critical, physical assets, from pre-feed through life cycle operations and maintenance. Presenters will discuss several case studies, which highlights another common denominator of our digital offering: strong customer partnerships that enable us to build effective solutions around their specific needs.

Optimize rotating equipment with MyAdvisor

MyAdvisor is a service that lets you evaluate your Siemens turbines and compressors. This session will demonstrate how MyAdvisor can make recommendations for the complete fleet, not only individual units, improving utilization and efficiencies.

Smarter Pumping for Crude Oil Pipelines - Optimizing the performance of pump stations for crude oil pipelines through data analytics

Pumping systems account for almost 20 percent of the world’s energy consumed by electric motors and approximately 25 to 50 percent of the total electric energy usage in certain industrial facilities (source: Among other applications, pumps move crude oil through vast pipeline networks, which in turn play an indispensable role in the transportation of hydrocarbons to key markets. Siemens is developing an approach that leverages data analytics to optimize the performance of pump stations for crude oil pipelines; more specifically, the application enables automatic detection of product batch changes, yielding reduced pressure transients and more consistent flow rates, while maximizing overall efficiency to reduce energy consumption. Through an annual, collaborative program with Penn State University (PSU), known as the Capstone Design Project, Siemens enlisted the assistance of PSU engineering students. The Siemens-PSU team’s ‘Smart Pump’ project won the ‘Best Project’ award in the fall of 2016, beating 70 other sponsored teams. The Siemens technology showcase will feature an interactive demonstrative of ‘Smart Pump’.
