The combination of GE’s Oil & Gas business with Baker Hughes to form BHGE was completed in July 2017, creating a fullstream provider of integrated oilfield products, services and digital solutions across the entire spectrum of oil & gas development.
Through its 3 facilities here, Singapore is a strategic hub for BHGE in Asia Pacific, that supports the operations of BHGE’s Oilfield Services, Oilfield Equipment, Turbomachinery & Process Solutions and Digital Solutions product companies across the region, including the production of complex completion tools, surface and subsea equipment.
Singapore also houses the company’s regional headquarters for aftermarket services covering measurement and control products, as well as blowout preventers.
Baker Hughes first ventured into Singapore in 1978, manufacturing tool joints. GE Oil & Gas entered the Singapore market through its Subsea equipment plant in 1972.
Since then, the Singapore team has grown to employ over 600 well-trained professionals, who handle a broad range of activities from manufacturing to aftermarket services, repair and regional functions.
The company has also enhanced its business through acquisitions, taking over 3 major companies with significant presence in Singapore. These companies are reservoir consulting firm Gaffney, Cline & Associates, which Baker Hughes acquired in 2008, as well as BJ Services, which provides wireline-conveyed well logging and data analysis among other services. In 2007, GE Oil & Gas purchased Vetco Gray, which manufactures subsea trees and pressure control equipment.
