Baker Hughes secures gas technology contract for Equinor’s BM-C-33 project

July 5, 2023
The contract awarded by MODEC will include combined cycle technology to be installed in the FPSO offshore Brazil to reduce the project’s carbon footprint.

HOUSTON and LONDON  Baker Hughes has been awarded a significant order, to be booked in second-quarter 2023, by MODEC to supply gas technology equipment for the BM-C-33 project in the Brazilian presalt Campos area.

The project is developed by Equinor with partners Repsol Sinopec Brasil and Petrobras.

The order comprises turbomachinery equipment, including LM2500 gas turbine generators and steam turbine generator technology, for a combined cycle power generation solution to be installed in the BM-C-33 FPSO to reduce the project’s carbon footprint, as well as process design engineering and balance of plant.

In this project, Baker Hughes expects a more than 20% carbon emissions reduction versus similar open cycle FPSOs with the same power demand. This is the second combined cycle power generation FPSO project developed by Baker Hughes for MODEC and Equinor in Brazilian deep waters, following the award for the Bacalhau FPSO in 2020.

For the BM-C-33 project, Equinor and its partners expect the FPSO to be able to achieve a carbon intensity target of less than 6 kg/boe over the field’s lifetime, while the global industry average is 16 kg CO2 per barrel.
