Baker Hughes has secured a contract to provide key equipment for the third phase of Aramco’s MGS project in Saudi Arabia, GlobalData have reported.

The contract, booked for 1Q24, will see Baker Hughes supplying 17 pipeline centrifugal compressors powered by aeroderivative gas turbines.

Aramco’s MGS phase three includes a 4000 km pipeline aimed at boosting domestic gas distribution and reducing carbon emissions and oil consumption.

The contract follows Baker Hughes' successful delivery of 18 centrifugal compressors for the first and second phases of the MGS project.

In response to growing demand, Baker Hughes is also expanding its manufacturing capabilities in Modon, Saudi Arabia.

The site's development is expected to double the workforce capacity and enhance the company's ability to deliver localised testing and packaging solutions for projects like MGS phase three.

Baker Hughes Chairman and CEO Lorenzo Simonelli said: “For over 30 years, Baker Hughes has been a trusted partner in natural gas operations, and our long-standing partnership with Aramco is helping to reduce emissions by transitioning to gas.

“Baker Hughes solutions are advancing the efficient use of natural gas, and we are proud to be delivering a reliable system to transport and distribute gas across Saudi Arabia.”

Earlier this month, Baker Hughes announced a contract to supply electric-driven liquefaction technologies to the Cedar LNG project.

The order, set for 1Q24, encompasses main refrigeration compressors, boil-off gas compressors and centrifugal pumps, all to be powered by renewable electricity.

Baker Hughes' technology will be employed at the Cedar LNG facility in Kitimat, British Columbia, Canada, a partnership between Haisla Nation and Pembina Pipeline.
