Baker Hughes, a GE company, said Wednesday it has secured a contract from Nigeria LNG, the operator of the giant Bonny export plant.

Under the deal, BHGE will provide asset performance management software services to reduce unplanned outages and trips for Nigeria LNG’s trains.

Using APM software, BHGE developed an outcome-based solution with a digital trip reduction program and has committed to a reduction of 20 percent of trips on the LNG trains and related balance of plant (BoP) within three years, the company said in the statement.

BHGE will supply the bundle of its software services, powered by GE’s Predix, the platform for the industrial internet, in a multi-year agreement that includes support from GE Power Services and GE Digital.

The company is also the main contractor of the project’s LNG trains, power generation and electrical motors units and has had a contractual service agreement in place with NLNG since 2003.

This new deal marks the first APM solution sold and executed both in the LNG market and in Sub-Saharan Africa by BHGE, the statement reads.

The Bonny Island facility consists of six trains in operation with a total capacity of some 22 mtpa of LNG.

Nigeria LNG is a joint venture compromised of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC (49%), Shell (25.6%), Total (15%), and Eni (10.4%).
