Baker Hughes Provides Parts, Service Resources for Woodside Energy

Published on: 

This agreement builds on a 2021 collaboration in Australia in which Baker Hughes supplied gas turbines and compressors for Woodside’s Pluto LNG train 2 project.

Woodside Energy awarded Baker Hughes a 10-year services frame agreement (SFA) to support its Australian LNG operations. According to the SFA, Baker Hughes will supply spare parts and field service resources for onsite turbomachinery maintenance and upgrades, refurbishment, and digital asset performance services.

“Given the role of LNG in supporting global energy security with affordable and reliable natural gas supplies, we recognize the criticality of providing ongoing innovations and enhancements to LNG technology solutions for Woodside Energy,” said Tiffany Pitts, VP of Gas Technology Services, IET at Baker Hughes. “The stability of LNG must be met with a commitment to proactively advance safety and efficiency, while investing in asset health management to drive more intelligent operations. We are proud to support Woodside Energy and look forward to progressing our collaboration into the future.”


The recent agreement adds to an ongoing LNG-based strategic partnership between Baker Hughes and Woodside Energy. In 2021, Baker Hughes delivered gas turbines and centrifugal compressors to support Woodside’s Pluto LNG train 2 project in Western Australia. Also, in 2022, the companies signed a memorandum of understanding to produce decarbonization solutions using Baker Hughes’ carbon management and climate technology.

In May 2024, SONATRACH granted a major supply contract to Baker Hughes for a project to increase gas production, supporting a stable gas supply chain between Europe and Algeria. The contract is part of a previous award given to a consortium of Baker Hughes and Tecnimont—a subsidiary of the engineering group MAIRE. The contract’s scope includes 20 compression trains based on the Frame 5 gas turbine and BCL compressor technology. These trains will be installed across three gas-boosting stations in the Hassi R’Mel gas field.

Baker Hughes’ equipment will boost and stabilize the pressure of natural gas and increase the site’s production, enhancing Algeria’s domestic energy system, economy, and Europe’s energy security. The manufacture of the compressors, as well as the packaging and testing of the compressor trains, will be conducted at Baker Hughes’s Italian facilities.

Black & Veatch also submitted an equipment order to Baker Hughes to supply electric-driven liquefaction technologies for its Cedar LNG project in Kitimat, British Columbia, Canada. Booked in Q1 2024, Baker Hughes supplied 12 pieces of turbomachinery equipment: four electric-driven main refrigeration compressors, two electric-driven boil-off gas compressors, and six centrifugal pumps.

Prior to these deals, in 2023, Baker Hughes was granted a letter of award from ADNOC Gas for the delivery of two electric liquefaction train systems (e-LNG) to the Ruwais LNG project in the United Arab Emirates. The LNG trains at Ruwais will be driven by Baker Hughes’ 75-MW BRUSH electric motor and equipped with its compression technology, making it one of the first all-electric LNG projects in the Middle East.

ADNOC’s Ruwais LNG growth project, with the assistance of Baker Hughes e-LNG technology, will attempt to more than double its LNG production capacity to satisfy gas demand. In addition to an all-electric LNG train, the Ruwais plant contains electric-powered processing facilities, completely integrating electric power for the project.
