 Press Releases

  • HOUSTON – May 6, 2019 – Baker Hughes, a GE company (NYSE: BHGE), announced today the introduction of its DELTA-TEQ™ low-pressure-impact drilling fluid, a non-aqueous formulation that enables operators working in narrow pressure windows to meet their drilling objectives by significantly reducing the risks associated with this activity.

    In challenging wells, like those offshore, pore pressure, fracture gradient, and complex geometry combine to create a narrow operating window. Numerous operational problemssuch as excessive surge pressures, pressure spikes due to pump initiation pressures, complicated equivalent circulating density (ECD) management, and the inability to effectively control drilling parameterscan result in costly and time-consuming events.

    “The typical solution to drilling in narrow pressure windows has been the use of a low-ECD drilling fluid,” said Clive Rayton, vice president, BHGE Drilling and Completion Fluids. “These fluids can mitigate some of the drilling risks, but not enough of the risks to reliably or efficiently meet all drilling objectives. The DELTA-TEQ fluid is the best solution for extending the critical drilling window.”

    Featuring an advanced formulation of specialized clay and polymers, the DELTA-TEQ fluid creates a non-progressive gel structure that reduces hydraulic impact with a rapid-set/easy-break profile. This profile maintains fluid integrity if operations are paused, mitigates pressure spikes when circulation resumes, and protects the formation from surge pressures when running casing.

    In addition, the DELTA-TEQ fluid has the unique ability to manage hydraulic impact by maintaining the right viscosity in the right areas of the well for optimal hole cleaning and penetration rates without putting excess pressure on the formation. Like a “viscosity clutch,” it engages viscosity at low shear rates and disengages at high shear rates.

    Recently, an independent national oil company deployed the DELTA-TEQ fluid in a challenging deepwater project in Brazil. The fluid retained its stability throughout a 2,149 ft (655 m) interval and enabled the operator to reach the section’s final measured depth at 9,258 ft (2822 m)marking the entry into the reservoir with stable borehole conditions and no downhole losses. The DELTA-TEQ fluid allowed the operator to increase flowrate by 14 percent and rate of penetration by 48 percent compared to offset wells, without significantly impacting pump pressure, equivalent circulating density, and torque and drag. Furthermore, the system reduced annular pressure variations by 47 percent compared to offsets, confirming the low-impact characteristics of the fluid.

  • Baker Hughes, a GE company Wins Turbomachinery Contract for BP’s Greater Tortue Ahmeyim FLNG Development

    • BHGE to provide turbomachinery equipment for four FLNG compression trains for BP’s Greater Tortue Ahmeyim natural gas project
    • Award is second major contract for Greater Tortue development, expanding on BHGE’s contract for subsea production equipment
    • Floating LNG facility to provide circa 2.5 million tonnes of LNG per annum and represents the first stage of a multi-phase project

    HOUSTON — May 6, 2019 – Baker Hughes, a GE company (NYSE: BHGE) announced today that it has been awarded a contract to supply turbomachinery equipment for the first phase of BP’s Greater Tortue Ahmeyim floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) project located offshore Mauritania and Senegal. BHGE will provide the technology for four compressor trains for offshore gas liquefaction on board Golar LNG Limited’s industry leading FLNG solution, expected to deliver 2.5 million tonnes of LNG per annum.

    The contract was awarded to BHGE in the first quarter of 2019 by Golar’s topsides contractor, Black and Veatch (B&V). The award builds on a separate subsea production contract also received by BHGE in the first quarter for the Project, demonstrating the strength and breadth of the company’s fullstream portfolio for offshore gas fields.

    Each of the four trains will consist of a PGT25+G4 aeroderivative gas turbine driving a centrifugal compressor. This solution was designed, tested and proven based on a model that B&V and BHGE developed together previously for a similar application . The gas turbines and compressors will be manufactured, tested and transported from BHGE’s plants in Italy.

    “Being selected for this important project reinforces our gas leadership position in the global LNG market and an important region,” said Rod Christie, President and CEO of BHGE Turbomachinery & Process Solutions. “Our technology solution has been proven to support FLNG, is based on a strong partnership with B&V and offers best-in-class reliability rates that will help reduce operational risks for Golar and BP.”

    Technology Details

    The PGT25+ G4 gas turbine family has over 560 units in operation, with more than 3.7 million of fired hours of operating experience. First introduced in the mid 2000’s, the PGT25+ G4 builds on the LM2500 and PGT25 heritage, which has over 2500 engines in service and has accumulated more than 94 million hours of operation with best-in-class reliability and availability.

    Project Details

    The initial subsea infrastructure connects the first four of 12 wells consolidated through production pipelines leading to a floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel. From here liquids are removed and the export gas is transported via a pipeline to the FLNG hub terminal where the gas is liquefied.

    The Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project will produce gas from an ultra-deepwater subsea system and mid-water floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, which will process the gas and remove heavier hydrocarbon components. The gas will then be transferred to a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility at an innovative nearshore hub located on the Mauritania and Senegal maritime border. The FLNG facility is designed to provide circa 2.5 million tonnes of LNG per annum on average, with the total gas resources in the field estimated to be around 15 trillion cubic feet. The project, the first major gas development to reach FID in the basin, is planned to provide LNG for global export as well as  making gas available for domestic use in both Mauritania and Senegal.

  • HOUSTON & DUBAI – May 8, 2019 – Topaz Energy and Marine (“Topaz”), a leading offshore marine logistics company, has signed a long-term agreement and placed an order with Baker Hughes, a GE company (NYSE: BHGE) to collaborate on deploying BHGE’s lubricant condition monitoring system, VitalyX, enhancing the maintenance and upkeep of Topaz’s fleet of vessels and helping to significantly increase field time for each vessel. VitalyX is expected to be deployed on the entire module carrying vessel (MCV) fleet for Topaz in late 2019 and is the largest single collaboration with the technology since being first unveiled at BHGE’s Annual Meeting in January.

    Utilising the Internet of Things (IoT) by combining the latest sensor hardware with condition monitoring software, the real-time data produced from VitalyX will provide Topaz with vital technical information on the condition of its vessels and the maintenance required to achieve optimal performance. Specifically, sensors will be deployed in key equipment onboard, such as the engine, thrusters and genset which will monitor the lube oil for contaminants, such as metal particles and soot.

    The system also monitors for the presence of water, salt water, glycol, fuel dilution, TBN and TAN index, assisting in predicting equipment failures and improving the life cycle of the lube oil. VitalyX further improves on Topaz’s ability to predict and prevent breakdowns before they happen, helping to minimise costs and better plan condition-based maintenance for more efficient dry-docking. This is the first collaboration between the two companies and is a direct example of Topaz driving digitisation in the offshore vessel sector. Today’s agreement will aim to optimise Topaz’s collaboration with BHGE in other areas to drive value for its customers and stakeholders.

    Recognised as a leader in the transformation of the offshore sector, Topaz received the Intelligence Data Innovation Award in November 2018 at the Lloyd’s List South Asia, Middle East & Africa Awards for Maritime Intelligence, recognising the company’s implementation of data analytics and digital technologies across the sector.
