Siemens publishes white paper on digitalized pumping solutions for pipelines

June 8, 2016 - A new white paper has been published which describes energy-efficient pumping solutions from Siemens designed to achieve a sustainable reduction of operating costs while helping to improve the reliability and safety of pumping stations.

Every pumping station along the length of a pipeline requires around 25 megawatts of power to transport crude oil and natural gas alongside their byproducts. With digitalized smart pumping solutions, greater integration and digitalization of pumping stations, transparency can be improved across the entire process. This allows pipeline operators to more efficiently align the consumption of power to the process. Using load management, the pumps can be made to generate precisely the degree of pressure required to achieve consistent batch optimization. This makes for sustainable energy savings, allows excessive peak loads to be avoided and reduces pump wear. Right from the installation stage, the modular design of the solutions and an extensive engineering framework help reduce plant complexity and cut project engineering times, while simulations prior to commissioning make for improved reliability. With this range of benefits, smart pumping solutions from Siemens ensure a rapid return on investment.
