Baker Hughes said on Friday an order has been confirmed with Petrobras to provide a suite of digital solutions across the state oil company’s sites in Brazil. The order, booked in the fourth quarter 2020, will further expand Petrobras’ digital capabilities following a third quarter 2020 order for a three-year frame agreement across multiple Baker Hughes Digital Solutions product lines.

Baker Hughes said it will support Petrobras’ thermal plants; refineries; gas treatment units; production plants; offshore platforms; and floating production, storage and offloading units (FPSO) with its technologies, ensuring the latest regulatory requirements are achieved. The order includes flare monitoring and calibration technologies, cybersecurity and remote monitoring services, and interconnected machinery protection systems and sensors.

“Through our integrated suite of technologies, we can leverage data and the power of our software and hardware systems to significantly advance Petrobras’ digital transformation journey,” said Rami Qasem, executive vice president of Digital Solutions at Baker Hughes. “In addition, our deep domain expertise in industrial asset management will support Petrobras with reducing risks and emissions while maintaining safer operations.”

Baker Hughes technologies use real-time analytics to help customers improve machinery health, eliminate unplanned outages, reduce downtime, and avoid catastrophic failures. Petrobras will benefit from several capabilities across Digital Solutions product lines, the company said.

In Guyana, Baker Hughes is moving to set up an Oilfield Service Facility where it expects to provide employment for over 70 Guyanese during the construction phase. The company said it will be looking to ensure local personnel and resources are utilised in the construction of the facility, which is expected to cost over US$8 million.

Baker Hughes is a prime contractor of ExxonMobil, operator at the Stabroek block offshore Guyana where approximately 9 billion barrels of oil have been found since 2015.
