Saudi Aramco to enhance oilfield production via Siemens’s compressors

Siemens Energy was selected to supply new electric motor driven compressors for Saudi Aramco’s Tanajib Plant facilities. The company received the order from the Spanish engineering and construction company, Técnicas Reunidas, who was awarded the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract for the Marjan Onshore Packages 9 and 11 projects last year. 

Saudi Aramco has awarded the major contracts for the Marjan Onshore project in Saudi Arabia. The five onshore packages make up the oil and gas surface facilities required for the Marjan development. Italy’s Saipem is believed to have won package 10, while Spain’s Tecnicas Reunidas is thought to be well-placed for packages 9 and 11. Meanwhile, South Korea’s Hyundai Engineering & Construction is the front runner for packages 6 and 12.

Siemens Energy will supply a total of 21 compressor trains for the project. They will be used in several gas treatment plant compression services, including high pressure (HP) and high-high pressure (HHP) injection, sales gas, refrigerant, and sour off-gas. 

The packaging of the compressor trains will be completed at Siemens Energy’s Dammam facilities in the KSA. Siemens Energy will engage local Saudi suppliers to support localization and technology transfer, helping to grow sustainable jobs for Saudi professionals.

“As with other Saudi Aramco projects, we remained focused on delivering solutions that were technically and economically aligned with their project drivers,” said Rob Barnes, Head of Sales, Europe, for Siemens Energy’s Industrial Applications Products.

This order continues Siemens Energy’s recent track record of successfully supplying compressor trains to Saudi Aramco projects, including the Hawiyah Unayzah Gas Reservoir Storage (HUGRS) project. These projects align with Siemens Energy’s core focus to use technological innovations to drive sustainable solutions for its customers and society. 

“We are honored to receive this order that reflects our ongoing commitment to Saudi Aramco’s IKTVA program despite today’s challenging business environment,” said Siva Krishnan, Head of Industrial Applications Products at Siemens Energy for the Middle East & North Africa.
