Baker Hughes, EGPC tie-up on flare recovery initiative

Baker Hughes and Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) will establish and drive a flare recovery initiative to support emissions recovery and reduction across Egypt’s upstream and downstream oil and gas operations. For this, Baker Hughes has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at the 2022 Egypt Petroleum Show (EGYPS) with EGPC. 
As Egypt prepares to host COP27 in November 2022, the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources aims to showcase data and findings from this project during the summit to demonstrate the role of the oil and gas sector in driving the country’s decarbonisation initiatives.
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 utilisation 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 reutilising the gas that would otherwise go to waste.
In addition, and in support of the Ministry’s Modernisation Programme, Baker Hughes solutions, including flare.IQ, will contribute to digitalising 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.
Baker Hughes’ emissions management solutions will support EGPC’s decarbonisation strategy, contributing to helping achieve ambitious carbon reduction targets, including positively impacting the quality of life for residents living in areas neighboring refineries.
