Drilling rig maintenance company Baker Hughes has opened a new base in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. The 100,000-square-meter facility, which houses laboratories, offices, repair and maintenance operations and a remote collaboration center, is part of the firm’s expansion plans for the Kingdom.

The new base also allows the use of a new telemetry system, known as ‘Beacon’. This means that users can monitor the whereabouts and the performance of equipment by computer from just about anywhere in the world.

Khaled Nouh, Middle East president for Baker Hughes, said the Dhahran operations base is a testament to Baker Hughes’ long-term commitment to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

“For the first time all Baker Hughes product lines are housed in the same facility in Saudi Arabia under one management team, which will drive consistent standards to improve service quality and reliability," noted Nouh.
