Baker Hughes has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) to establish and drive a flare recovery initiative to support emissions recovery and reductions across Egypt’s upstream and downstream oil and gas operations.
To enable flare recovery from oil and gas sites across Egypt, Baker Hughes will leverage its portfolio of emissions management solutions including flare management technology, compression, gas turbines, and integrated processing systems that can help in the measurement, management, recovery, and utilization of flare gas.
Through the deployment of Baker Hughes’ emissions management solutions, EGPC will aim to reduce emissions and improve the efficiency of its oil and gas operations across the country. This will include reducing the amount of gas flared and vented into the environment, enabling EGPC to drive more efficiency by reutilizing the gas that would otherwise go to waste.
In addition, and in support of the Ministry’s Modernization Program, Baker Hughes solutions will contribute to digitalizing emissions management infrastructure by enabling EGPC to pull critical information about its flare systems to calculate optimum levels of flare efficiency and help reduce methane emissions.
