Baker Hughes to write down $15 billion, cut spending


Houston oilfield service company Baker Hughes plans to write down the value of its assets by $15 billion and cut capital spending by more than 20% from 2019 levels as market conditions worsen for the oil and gas industry.


Data-driven decision making from Baker Hughes


In their push to lower total cost of ownership and improve the safe operation of their offshore blowout preventers (BOPs), drilling contractors and operators need real-time access to BOP data that can reduce non-productive time (NPT) and total expense (TOTEX), without increasing maintenance and service costs.

Health & Safety

Can mindfulness keep offshore workers safe?


The risks of working in the offshore energy industry are well-documented – long hours, dangerous equipment, extreme weather and weeks away from family and friends. The results can be catastrophic, illustrated by the 2010 blowout on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig, which killed 11 people and spilled millions of barrels of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico.
