Baker Hughes to supply Saudi gas pipeline expansion with compression

Published by , Senior Editor

Baker Hughes has received an order from Worley, for and on behalf of Aramco, to supply gas technology equipment for the third phase of Saudi Arabia’s Master Gas System project. The award was booked in 1Q24.

Baker Hughes will supply 17 pipeline centrifugal compressors driven by state-of-the-art aeroderivative gas turbines for Aramco’s project. The new 4000 km pipeline is vital to the Kingdom’s energy transition, with expectations to increase domestic gas distribution and contribute to a reduction of carbon emissions and oil consumption. The order follows the delivery of 18 of Baker Hughes centrifugal compressors driven by aeroderivative gas turbines for Phase 1 and 2 of the Master Gas System projects executed by Baker Hughes.

Baker Hughes is also investing in expanding its manufacturing site in Modon, Saudi Arabia. In addition to doubling the capacity of its workforce, the upgraded site will further support the delivery of projects in the country, including MGS3, with localised testing and packaging solutions.

In February, Baker Hughes announced the delivery of the first two trains of advanced hydrogen compression solutions for the NEOM green hydrogen project in the Kingdom, the largest such project in the world.
