|Water Solutions for the Oil & Gas Industry|
Siemens Water Solutions addresses water and wastewater needs of the oil & gas industry with a portfolio that includes physical and chemical separation, biological treatment, and complex hydrothermal technologies. We bring years of expertise and experience coupled with a technology portfolio and the ability to fully integrate the supply, from simple products to complete solutions, managing customer risk in execution and process performance.
Water is a resource and a byproduct of all that we do – a critical element in offshore, onshore, upstream and downstream activities. The treatment and management of this water is becoming increasingly complex as you work to keep pace with global standards, energy demand and environmental regulations. Rely on us to be your water solutions partner. Together, we’ll make real what matters most.
Our core business is processing and treating water and wastewater for companies like yours. Our oil and gas business includes water treatment technologies, total water treatment solutions and water treatment services. We address your specific needs, from simple products to complex, fully integrated solutions, from beginning to end.

Ever since Coriolis flow measurement technology achieved mainstream appeal, industry has been fervently striving to take advantage of its benefits. And while Coriolis is clearly a highly advantageous solution for many crucial flow measurement applications, it is not without flaw.
Since the first Coriolis flow sensors were introduced to the marketplace in the 1970s, the technology has evolved considerably. As the installed base for Coriolis grew, the sensors were being called upon to deliver data in environments with increasing levels of complexity. This meant that Coriolis sensors had to adapt and conform to a dizzying array of ever-changing installation requirements, process conditions, communication formats, and configuration parameters. The following article highlights four key advances in Coriolis flow measurement’s journey from the 1970s to today.
Coriolis measurement has been adopted as a default technology in many application scenarios due to its high accuracy and immunity to process variables (temperature, pressure and flow profile). However, Coriolis wasn't always widely accepted. Two applications, in particular, helped what was once a nascent flow measurement technology gain a foothold in the marketplace.
There is no doubt that the practice of hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, has completely changed the oil and gas landscape in recent history. There is also no doubt that this is a highly technical process.
It may not be immediately apparent just how crucial bubbles are to oil and gas operations. They play a critical role in a process known as dissolved gas flotation (DGF), which is imperative for removing contaminants. And not all bubbles are created the same.
Horizontal drilling started back in 1929 and hydraulic fracking began in 1949. However, it was not until 2003 that the horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracking processes were combined to extract gas from the Barnett Shale in north Texas. Since then, gas drilling has increased by 14 times in the United States. Given the vast shale formations throughout the United States, drilling will continue to increase for several more years.
Jack Roushey, Product Manager for Siemens electromagnetic flowmeters, presents on how to use magmeters in zero upstream and zero downstream applications. Based on their demonstrated ability to perform in non-ideal conditions, the SITRANS F M MAG 5100W and MAG 8000 electromagnetic sensors from Siemens have received approval for 2% accuracy custody transfer (MI-001) and non-custody transfer applications for installation with zero diameter upstream pipe and zero diameter downstream straight run pipe from the sensor.
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.
Manual tank gauging is a common oilfield activity that’s resulted in multiple worker deaths in recent years. By using work practice control, operators can reduce the risks it poses significantly.
PerforMedia™ oil removal media replaces walnut shells in media filtration systems. Manufactured from materials not subject to agricultural limitations, the media is able to handle five times the amount of oil before requiring backwash; is able to maintain feed concentrations of greater than 500 mg/L while producing effluent well under 10 ppm; and can be used on a wide range of oil API and elevated temperatures.

Siemens Water Solutions offers a full range of laboratory scale, bench scale and pilot scale testing capabilities – either at our site or at yours. Let us pilot test a system for you today and demonstrate the benefits of a PACT® MBR system for you in real time.
Streamlined oil and gas wastewater treatment via the unique, all-in-one PACT® MBR system by Siemens — proven, available and supported worldwide — uses half the space of conventional methods and offers substantial cost savings. The PACT® MBR system combines the process performance of activated sludge biological treatment, activated carbon adsorption and membrane filtration into a simplified and compact waste treatment model.
Siemens has developed an easy-to-operate, packaged, electro-oxidation system that can treat even the toughest wastewaters.
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.
