Talakar is now based in Houston, Texas – the global headquarters for Siemens Oil & Gas and its parent operating company, Siemens Gas and Power.

Before his new role, Talakar was responsible for Siemens Saudi Arabia. Together with his team, he has developed close ties and strategic partnerships with leading global oil and gas, energy and petrochemicals companies, and has succeeded in securing and executing large infrastructure projects. His focus has also provided broad exposure to Siemens’ products, projects, solutions and services.

Talakar started his career with Siemens in 1996 as a rotating equipment and automation systems engineer. Since then, he has held a number of roles of increasing responsibility across the world. His 23 years of experience with the company provides valuable perspective to the power and oil and gas businesses as energy markets continue to evolve in this transitionary period.

According to the statement, Talakar will provide a luncheon keynote address at the 50th annual Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston on 7 May at 12:15 – 1:45 p.m. (CST). The title of his presentation is “Fostering a Smarter Energy Transition – from Cleaner Hydrocarbons to Cost-Competitive Renewables”.

He said: “The energy industry is transforming amidst a digital and technological revolution, which moves us toward evermore complex, multi-modal and decentralised systems.

“Managing this complexity is the true challenge of shaping the new energy future requiring us to think and plan how we will, together with our customers, transform from today to tomorrow’s energy ecosystem.”
