Baker Hughes has secured an order with Petrobras to provide a suite of digital solutions across Petrobras sites in Brazil. The order, booked in the fourth quarter of 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 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.
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, including Bently Nevada’s latest generation Orbit 60 system, System 1 software licenses, and remote monitoring services for advanced industrial asset management; Panametrics’ Flare.IQ advanced flare gas monitoring and optimization system, and FlareCare services and parts for reduced carbon and methane emissions; and Nexus Controls’ distributed control systems, cybersecurity services, and human-machine interface (HMI) upgrades for safer and more reliable operations.
