Energy technology firm Baker Hughes announced Tuesday that it has strengthened its presence in the Asian market with the opening of a new oilfield services chemical manufacturing plant in Singapore.

The 40,000-sq-m facility will house chemical manufacturing, storage, and distribution capabilities to serve upstream, midstream, downstream, and adjacent industries in the region. Baker Hughes said its decision to open the location is part of its recent strategy to source and produce chemicals close to key hubs where demand is high.

“The opening of the Singapore chemicals manufacturing facility significantly expands our ability to serve the Asia-Pacific region’s oilfield services industry,” Maria Claudia Borras, executive vice president for oilfield services at Baker Hughes, said in a release. “The opening of this facility is aligned to our vision of supporting customers’ needs and investing for growth in the increasingly important chemicals sector. We are proud to make this investment, and I am excited for the opportunities that lie ahead.”

About 800 workers are currently employed by Baker Hughes in Singapore at the firm’s oilfield services and equipment manufacturing site, a joint turbomachinery and process solutions and digital site, and a completions and well intervention (CWI) manufacturing facility. The newly announced project will be the company’s first chemical plant in Asia.

“Baker Hughes has a longstanding commitment to localization in the region. By investing in this facility, we are enabling job creation, enhancing supply chain practices, and streamlining our operations,” said Lorenzo Simonelli, chairman and CEO of Baker Hughes, in a statement.
