Siemens recently opened a high-speed reciprocating compressor (HSRC) and mobile power support centre in Odessa, Texas. The facility will serve the expanding HSRC and rotating equipment customer base in the Permian Basin as part of Siemens’ near-term growth objectives in the prolific oil and gas producing region. While initially focusing on HSRC spare parts, as early as next year the facility will support a wide range of unconventional resource activities, such as electric frac and mobile gas turbine staging to satisfy fast power needs.
“Our HSRC support center in Odessa will better position us to serve a key customer base in a significant region through a strategic parts stocking program,” said Patrice Laporte, Vice President for Siemens Oil & Gas Americas.
“We look forward to working with operators and service companies in the Permian Basin to ensure fast response on their solution needs such as emissions-reducing electric frac systems, all the way to apps that optimise artificial lift performance,” added Matthew Wilhoit, Vice President for Siemens Unconventional Oil & Gas.
Siemens serves the upstream, midstream and downstream oil and gas market through a range of technologies and solutions. Its unconventional resource portfolio includes power generation (fixed and mobile trailer-based technology), electrical distribution (via electric motors, drives, switchgear), reciprocating compressors, and digital solutions, as well as solutions for gas processing, pipeline (liquids and gas), and liquefied natural gas (LNG) operators across the world.
