Siemens Hydrocarbon Articles

  1. Major Global Project

    Braskem Idesa is a 75-25 joint venture between Brazil’s Braskem, the largest producer of thermoplastic resins in the Americas, and Grupo Idesa, a traditional petrochemical company in Mexico. As one of the project’s top suppliers of skills, technology and equipment, Siemens itself marshaled resources and employees from 11 different countries to collaborate on a truly multinational and multicultural level with Braskem Idesa and its global partners.

  2. The Solution For Difficult-To-Treat Wastewaters

    Siemens has developed an easy-to-operate, packaged, electro-oxidation system that can treat even the toughest wastewaters.

  3. A Lower-Cost Approach To Treating Low-Volume Refinery Spent Caustic Streams

    Electro-oxidation, also called electrochemical advanced oxidation, uses electricity to generate hydroxyl radicals to perform oxidation in wastewater treatment. A new commercially available electro-oxidation process—Zimpro® Electro-oxidation (ZEO)—is especially effective for treating the highly problematic spent caustic streams produced by sweetening operations in petroleum refineries and ethylene plants, particularly at volumes below the economically feasible threshold for existing established treatment technologies.

  4. Emergency Relief For Oil Rig

    Late on a Friday afternoon, there was an emergency phone call to the Siemens Process Instrumentation office in Hauppauge, NY.

  5. Siemens Launches Zimpro Electro-Oxidation Technology For Spent Caustic Treatment

    Based on experience and knowledge gained from application of the highly-effective Zimpro® wet air oxidation (WAO) technology, Siemens has developed an electro-oxidation process to address the needs of refinery and petrochemical spent caustic treatment.

  6. Life Cycle Management For Oil And Gas Water Treatment Solutions

    Smart technologies and connectivity just about everywhere have enabled Siemens Water Solutions to offer comprehensive Life Cycle Management to oil and gas customers worldwide, helping ensure that water treatment facilities are always optimized and available, for decades of safe, dependable use.

  7. The Use Of Walnut Shell Filtration With Enhanced Synthetic Media For The Reduction And/Or Elimination Of Upstream Produced Water Treatment Equipment

    Researchers set out to find a substitute for black walnut shells for oil/water separation due in part to the seasonal availability of black walnuts shells. Additionally, a media with improved performance was needed.

  8. EICT Package For Det norske’s Ivar Aasen Project

    In 2008, Det norske discovered hydrocarbons in the Ivar Aasen field some 180 kilometers off the Norwegian coast. When the plan for development and operation was approved by the Norwegian parliament in May 2013, the company immediately started preparing to build an offshore platform to exploit the field – an important milestone in the company’s history. Through Ivar Aasen and with a comprehensive and advanced technology package from Siemens, Det norske will become a leading oil producer on the Norwegian shelf.

  9. Water Treatment Challenge

    In the Castilla oil field in the Acacias township in Colombia, Siemens is partnering with Ecopetrol to set up a system that will purify about 40 million gallons of water daily, equal to the average water consumption of a city of 100,000 people.

  10. Efficient Water Technologies For Upstream And Downstream Requirements

    Water is a critical element in upstream and downstream activities within the oil and gas industry. Based on thousands of onshore and offshore applications, Siemens meets the industry’s requirements with a proven portfolio of products for physical and chemical separation, biological treatment, and complex hydrothermal technologies.
