Baker Hughes expands in Australia

Posted on 07 December 2010

Growing demand and increased oilfield activity in Australia has prompted Baker Hughes to open a new facility in Welshpool, Australia. Three of the company’s service lines—pumping, tubular, and process/pipeline, are now housed in a 340,000-sq-ft facility. The number of personnel has also increased fourfold during the past three years. The new center serves as operations base for Australia and New Zealand. In addition to pumping, tubular, and process/pipeline services, the facility also houses the largest fleet of nitrogen services equipment in Australia.
