Baker Hughes has won an order to supply compressors for the third phase of Saudi Arabia’s Master Gas System project

Under the provisions of the order, placed by Worley on behalf of Aramco, Baker Hughes will supply 17 pipeline centrifugal compressors driven by state-of-the-art aeroderivative gas turbines for the project. The order follows the delivery of 18 of Baker Hughes centrifugal compressors driven by aeroderivative gas turbines for Phase 1 and 2 of the Master Gas System projects executed by Baker Hughes.

The Master Gas System project, which involves a new 4,000-km pipeline, is vital to the Kingdom’s energy transition and gas expansion strategy. Aramco plans to raise gas production by more than 60% by 2030, compared to 2021 levels, thereby increasing domestic gas distribution and contributing to a reduction of carbon emissions and oil consumption.

“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,” said Lorenzo Simonelli, chairman and CEO of Baker Hughes. “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.”
