Baker Hughes opens new chemical facility in Singapore
The 40,000 m2 facility will manufacture, store and distribute chemical solutions for upstream, midstream, downstream and adjacent industries to support regional customers.
The new facility builds on Baker Hughes’ recent strategy to source and produce chemicals in proximity to key demand hubs, including the announced chemicals joint venture (JV) 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 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. We are proud to make this investment, and I am excited for the opportunities that lie ahead.”
“Baker Hughes has a longstanding commitment to localisation in the region. By investing in this facility, we are enabling job creation, enhancing supply chain practices, and streamlining our operations,” said Lorenzo Simonelli, chairman and CEO of Baker Hughes. “It was an honour to celebrate this milestone with many esteemed guests today.”
