• October 2017. Baker Hughes, a GE company, joins ARPEL as a new cooperating member, thus following the commitment shared by all the member companies to cooperate in the development of best practices and solutions aimed at excellence in management, operations and products.

    BHGE was created from the merger of two leading companies (Baker Hughes Inc. & GE Oil & Gas) that bind the value chain across the industry, a new concept within the sector in which there was a clear separation between upstream, midstream and downstream.

    The company offers services and oilfield equipment, solutions and processes in turbomachinery, and digital solutions, with 24 product lines and segments.

    It has headquarters in Houston (United States) and London (United Kingdom).
