Baker Hughes to Provide CO2 Compression Equipment for Santos Moomba Carbon Capture & Storage Project in Australia
Baker Hugheswill provide proven gas turbine and compressor technology
- Moomba carbon capture and storage (CCS) project aims to be one of the largest in the world
- CO2 to be stored permanently and safely in depleted natural gas reservoirs
- Demonstrates key enabling technology required for future blue hydrogen production
The contract follows a 35+ year history of Baker Hughes providing technology and services to Santos for its operations, including turbomachinery and offshore equipment and services. Moomba CCS further progresses the companies’ relationship as Santos evolves its own operations across the energy transition and leverages Baker Hughes’ comprehensive portfolio of carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) solutions. Specifically, Baker Hughes will provide PGT25+G4 aeroderivative gas turbine, MCL compressor, and BCL compressor technology, which will enable Santos to compress CO2 captured at Moomba CCS for transportation and subsequent injection for storage.
Baker Hughes’ broader CCUS portfolio features advanced turbomachinery, solvent-based state-of-the-art capture processes, well construction and management for CO2 storage, and advanced digital monitoring and industrial asset management solutions.
“This project exemplifies the range of solutions that energy and industrial companies are seeking across the energy transition and how collaboration is needed to lower emissions and enhance efficiencies from their operations,” said
The contract for Baker Hughes’ technology lays a foundation for Santos’ future objectives of decarbonizing natural gas, lowering emissions and ultimately producing hydrogen fuel using stored CO2. A final investment decision on the Moomba CCS project was reached in
