The advantages of IDS for midstream oil and gas

Transporting oil and gas thousands of kilometers across the country requires a reliable and efficient system — and Siemens Integrated Drive Systems (IDS) deliver. IDS can be used to increase throughput, reliability and performance in any midstream compression, pumping or gas injection applications. Each component is engineered to complement the others — and the application itself — which promotes energy efficiency and optimizes dynamic performance. Best yet: it’s a one-stop solution, which means no more multivendor coordination or wasteful overengineering.
