Sustainable Project Baker Hughes Launches New Chemicals Manufacturing Facility in Singapore
Baker Hughes has launched a new oilfield services chemicals manufacturing facility in Singapore which will manufacture, store and distribute chemical solutions for upstream, midstream, downstream and adjacent industries. The automated unit is in line with the firm’s goals of reducing carbon and supports Singapore’s national sustainability movement ‘Green Plan 2030’.
Jalan Ahmad Ibrahim/Singapore – Baker Hughes is expanding its presence in Asia by opening a new oilfield services chemicals manufacturing facility in Singapore, enabling manufacturing optimization and faster delivery of fit-for-purpose chemical solutions. The facility, which spans approximately 40,000 square meters, will manufacture, store and distribute chemical solutions for upstream, midstream, downstream and adjacent industries to support regional customers and boost Baker Hughes’ localization efforts.
The new facility builds on Baker Hughes’s recent strategy to source and produce chemicals in proximity to key demand hubs, including the announced chemicals joint venture company with Dussur in Saudi Arabia.
As a technology-driven, automated facility, the Singapore facility is aligned with Baker Hughes’ goals for carbon reduction and in support of Singapore’s ‘Green Plan 2030’ – a national sustainability movement to tackle climate change for building a sustainable future with net zero emissions. The facility’s overall process design, in addition to the facility’s ethylene oxide pipeline, also reduces the need for road transport and handling of chemicals.
“The opening of the Singapore chemicals manufacturing facility significantly expands our ability to serve the Asia-Pacific region’s oilfield services industry,” said Maria Claudia Borras, executive vice president for oilfield services at Baker Hughes. “The opening of this facility is aligned to our vision of supporting customers’ needs and investing for growth in the increasingly important chemicals sector.”
