Siemens is opening its new oil and gas headquarters in Houston.
Siemens managing board member Lisa Davis, who leads Siemens’ oil and gas and power generation businesses, will be based in the West Memorial Drive office in Houston’s energy corridor as will Siemens’ oil and gas and marine business unit.
“Our Houston location is critical for Siemens’ long-term growth as it brings us closer to upstream, midstream and downstream customers,” says Davis. “Siemens’ expertise in automation, electrical systems, data analytics, and service combined with our existing portfolio, including Rolls-Royce industrial aero-derivative gas turbines, and our agreement to acquire Houston-based Dresser-Rand, fortifies our position as the most complete, end-to-end rotating equipment and process automation provider in the market today.”
Siemens’ technologies can be found in projects across the city of Houston.
Siemens provided Houston’s first light rail system, supplied building control systems at NRG Park and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, replaced over 10,000 traffic and pedestrian signals with LED technology, and led Houston’s Energy Efficiency Building Retrofit program involving 5.5 MMsf of facilities as well as upgrades to the city’s parks and sports fields.
