Baker Hughes wins contract to support Woodside’s LNG operations in Australia

US energy services firm Baker Hughes has entered into a new 10-year services frame agreement with Australian LNG player Woodside to support its LNG operations in Australia.

Under the multi-year services frame agreement, Baker Hughes will provide spare parts and field service resources for onsite turbomachinery equipment maintenance and upgrades, equipment refurbishment, and advanced digital asset performance services, according to a statement.

Baker Hughes did not reveal the price tag of the deal.

The firm said this latest agreement builds on the strategic partnership between Baker Hughes and Woodside Energy in the LNG sector that first started in 1989 and has since included collaboration on multiple projects.

In 2021, Baker Hughes was awarded the supply of high-efficiency gas turbine and compressor technology for Woodside’s Pluto LNG train 2 project in Western Australia, which serves Woodside Energy’s Scarborough offshore gas project and provides LNG exports to countries across Asia.

In November 2021, Woodside took a final investment decision on the Scarborough and Pluto LNG Train 2 developments worth about $12 billion.

Pluto Train 2 will get gas from the Scarborough gas field, located about 375 km off the coast of Western Australia, through a new trunkline long about 430 km.

Overall, Woodside’s Scarborough and the second Pluto LNG train projects were 62 percent complete at the end of the first quarter, and Woodside plans to ship the first LNG cargo in 2026.

Besides this Pluto LNG contract, the two companies signed a memorandum of understanding in 2022 to collaborate on possible decarbonizing solutions.

Baker Hughes booked about $200 million of LNG equipment orders in the first quarter of this year, and the company expects global LNG FIDs to reach about 100 mtpa over the next three years.

The US firm booked record $5.6 billion of LNG equipment orders in 2023 and $3.5 billion in 2022.
