Baker Hughes Partners with NOVATEK

16 February 2021

Baker Hughes and PAO NOVATEK signed an agreement aimed at reducing carbon emissions from natural gas and liquefied natural gas (LNG) production. The companies will cooperate on the development and implementation of innovative compression and power generation technology solutions from Baker Hughes for NOVATEK’s LNG projects, supporting NOVATEK's emissions reduction, raising efficiency and supporting long-term sustainability.

It all begins with a pilot program to introduce hydrogen blends into the main process for natural gas liquefaction to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from LNG facilities, including NOVATEK’s Yamal LNG complex. Baker Hughes will provide engineering and turbomachinery equipment to convert existing natural gas liquefaction trains at Yamal LNG to run on hydrogen blends rather than solely run with methane from feed gas.
