Within the LNG industry, engineering giant Siemens has historically been known as an equipment provider. But according to Matthew Russell, executive vice president of LNG at Siemens, while the company’s heart and experience still lies in turbines and compression, the industry’s extraordinary growth in the past decade, which created an adapt-or-perish environment where “everyone is being asked to do more,” made it clear that Siemens had to broaden its perspective and remit.  

In this exclusive interview, Russell explains to LNG Business Review how Siemens – which, having embraced the role of project developer, is now completing the biggest gas-to-power scheme in the world in Brazil – has responded to the increasingly challenging demands of its clients, why it declares itself “agnostic” when it comes to the elements that constitute an individual LNG project, and the reasoning behind the spin-off of its gas, power and renewables businesses.
