Baker Hughes, an energy technology company, has announced an award from the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR) to employ its electric submersible pump (ESP) technology and automated field production software solution, Leucipa, in the nation’s oilfields. The signing ceremony for the joint cooperation agreement took place in Baku in the presence of Baker Hughes CEO and Chairman Lorenzo Simonelli and SOCAR President Rovshan Najaf.

The first 50 of more than 150 ESPs are expected to arrive this year. The combined offering will provide increased optimization across SOCAR’s oilfield operations with expected efficiencies significantly reducing the number of workovers.

'Baker Hughes and SOCAR have long worked together to employ innovative approaches to the oil and gas industry in the Caspian,' Simonelli said. 'Technology remains essential to achieve sustainable energy development, and our proven production solutions generate shorter-cycle, lower-cost and lower-carbon barrels for our customer.'

The project will also have a significant local impact. The two companies will establish a joint center of excellence that will have the capability to manufacture, assemble, repair and maintain the ESPs. Baker Hughes will also invest in local workforce training initiatives.
