BAKER Hughes an- nounced it has moved its Surface Pressure Control
Projects busi- ness (SPC Projects) headquarters from Houston to Abu
Dhabi, bringing its operations closer to some of the company’s
strategic customers and oil producers globally. The move will
ensure better align- ment on strategy, decision-making and
implementation of projects.
The announcement builds on Baker Hughes’ 2019 opening of a well-
heads facility in Abu Dhabi. By bringing the headquarters closer to
one of its largest Pressure Control manufacturing sites in Saudi
Arabia, the SPC Projects business will be better suited for future
growth and expansion.
SPC Projects is a part of the Oilfield Equipment segment of Baker
Hughes. The business provides surface and subsea wellheads, surface
pressure control equipment, subsea well intervention solutions and
relat- ed services and connectors with facilities are in the Middle
East, Mexico, Singapore and China.
The new SPC Projects headquarters in Abu Dhabi will deepen collabo-
ration with regional leaders for technology and R&D in the
oilfield equip- ment space, enhance local skills and bring more
operational expertise to the UAE, contributing to the region’s
manufacturing, engineering and sourcing capabilities.
“The Middle East is a key market for Baker Hughes, and the
relocation of our SPC Projects headquarters to Abu Dhabi reflects
our continued commitment to the region and focus on supporting the
in-country value (ICV) requirements of the markets we operate in,”
said Ayman Khattab, VP of Gulf, North Africa and India and VP of
SPC Projects for Oilfield Equipment at Baker Hughes.
