“We are pleased with our fourth quarter and full year results while navigating the impacts of the global pandemic and industry downturn. Despite an incredibly challenging year for the industry in 2020, we generated over $500 million in free cash flow, booked $6.4 billion in TPS orders, and executed on our substantial cost-out and restructuring program. We also took several important steps to accelerate our strategy and invest in energy transition technologies, helping to position the company for the future. I cannot thank our employees enough for their hard work and dedication to achieve our goals and move the company forward,” said Lorenzo Simonelli, Baker Hughes chairman and chief executive officer.

“As we look ahead to 2021, we are cautiously optimistic that the global economy and oil demand will begin to recover from the impact of the global pandemic. We believe this macro environment likely translates into a tepid investment environment for oil and gas during the first half of 2021. However, we expect spending and activity levels to gain momentum through the year as the macro environment improves, likely setting up the industry for stronger growth in 2022.

“Baker Hughes is well placed to navigate the current market environment and positioned to lead the energy transition. We remain focused on executing for customers, being disciplined on cost, and delivering for our shareholders,” concluded Simonelli.

Quarter Highlights

Supporting our Customers

The OFS segment was awarded several large contracts for drilling and completions in the fourth quarter. Equinor awarded Baker Hughes a significant portion of the drilling and well completions contracts for Phase 1 of the Bacalhau field in offshore Brazil. OFS will provide an integrated well services package for Equinor across multiple product lines, including drilling services, drill bits, drilling and completion fluids, cementing, stimulation, fishing services, and completion equipment.

OFS also secured artificial lift contracts in multiple regions, continuing to demonstrate OFS’ differentiated portfolio in electrical submersible pumping systems (ESPs) and digital monitoring solutions. Commercial agreements for artificial lift equipment and services included a seven-year contract with a customer in the Middle East, a six-year contract with a customer in Italy, and a four-year contract with a customer in the Russia Caspian region.

The OFE segment secured a major equipment order with Eni for the Agogo offshore oilfield in Angola. Consistent with Baker Hughes' Subsea Connect strategy, the order includes multiple subsea trees, wellheads, manifolds, flexible jumpers, distribution units, and controls systems for subsea and the topside.

The TPS segment was awarded a major contract by South Gas Company (SGC) in Iraq for the design, manufacturing, delivery, construction and commissioning of an integrated facility for the processing and production of natural gas. The facility is expected to have a capacity of 200 million standard cubic feet of natural gas per day and utilize previously flared natural gas from the Nassiriya and Gharraf oil fields, reducing emissions by an estimated 6+ million tons of CO2 annually. Baker Hughes will act as an overall solution provider for SGC, overseeing construction and startup of the facility as well as supplying compression equipment, digital monitoring systems and multiple services.

TPS was also awarded several LNG contracts in the fourth quarter, booking an order with longtime partner Qatar Petroleum for power generation equipment for the North Field East LNG project following the third quarter order for the main refrigerant compressors.

The Digital Solutions segment secured a major contract with Petrobras as a follow up to a third quarter award for a three-year frame agreement. The fourth quarter contract will provide a suite of digital solutions and services to optimize productivity, reduce operational and safety risks, and lower carbon emissions across Petrobras sites in Brazil. Petrobras will accelerate its digital transformation, adopting the latest Bently Nevada condition monitoring and protection platform as well as remote monitoring and diagnostics capability. The contract also includes Nexus Controls systems and cybersecurity solutions, flare monitoring and calibration technologies, and Flare.IQ advanced flare gas monitoring and optimization system.

Executing on Priorities

The OFS Chemicals product line secured multiple upstream and downstream chemicals contracts, including a multi-year contract to provide hydrocarbon and water treatment services at one of the largest U.S. refineries. In Asia, Chemicals secured multiple contracts in Thailand, China, Australia, and Malaysia, providing additional regional volume as OFS plans to open its first chemicals manufacturing facility in the region in 2022.

TPS secured several upgrade orders for the supply of high efficiency compression equipment to help extend the field life of projects in the North Sea, Sub-Saharan Africa and in North West Kazakhstan for the Karachaganak Expansion Project-1A operated by Karachaganak Petroleum Operating B.V. Baker Hughes high pressure-reinjection compressors will be used within the 5th Injection Compressor facility, thus helping to extend the duration of the liquid production plateau.

TPS continued executing on LNG projects in the quarter, with multiple equipment modules shipped from Italy to the U.S. for the Calcasieu Pass LNG project with Venture Global LNG. TPS also completed all three LM9000 string tests for power generation and mechanical drive for the Arctic LNG 2 project led by NOVATEK PAO and shipped compression equipment as well as electrical generator and gas turbine packages for the first of three gravity-based structures.

DS secured several North American contracts to enhance operations, improve productivity and drive digital transformation across the energy sector. The Bently Nevada product line secured a contract with a major hydroelectric operator in the U.S. to provide its Orbit 60 system, System 1 software and a five-year services agreement for industrial asset management across multiple dams. Bently Nevada will also provide its System 1 software to American Electric Power (AEP) for several plants in its generation fleet, allowing AEP to monitor live data from and diagnose issues as needed.

DS also continued to expand in industrial end markets. The Waygate Technologies (WT) business secured a significant order with a global leading Asian automaker for its latest Phoenix Speedscan HD system, providing automated inline computed tomography to inspect aluminum cylinder heads for automotive engines. In the aerospace market, WT developed an ‘intelligent borescope’ solution with Rolls-Royce, significantly reducing the time to inspect a jet engine and offering integration between the borescope, app, and turning tool that has not been available to the segment before. The Druck product line also secured multiple military aerospace contracts in Europe, Asia, and North America for aircraft sensors and instrumentation.

Leading with Innovation

Baker Hughes continued to develop technologies to advance the energy transition, improve efficiencies, and reduce emissions for customers. The Company acquired Compact Carbon Capture (3C), a pioneering technology development company specializing in carbon capture solutions. The acquisition underpins Baker Hughes’ strategic commitment to lead in the energy transition and provide differentiated decarbonization solutions for carbon-intensive industries.

Baker Hughes also announced a joint service offering with Wurth Industry North America (WINA) to expand additive manufacturing solutions for Wurth’s 80,000+ global customers. Together, WINA and Baker Hughes will provide advanced design, digital inventory, and customized 3D printing services in a range of industrial applications. Through 3D printing at scale, customers are capable of supply chain logistics-related emissions by moving production closer to the point of consumption.

OFE launched engageSubsea remote, an extension of its engageSubsea platform. EngageSubsea provides a single platform for equipment inspection, operational management and technical support, driving operational excellence and increasing capital productivity for offshore oil and gas operations. The latest remote capabilities further allow operators to cut costs, reduce downtime, improve efficiency, and minimize safety and travel risks. EngageSubsea remote is already a proven technology with live deployments with customers in the Norwegian Continental Shelf and at Baker Hughes services facilities.

DS launched the world’s fastest pressure controller from Druck, known as PACE CM3, as well as Druck’s next generation of pressure sensors, the ADROIT6000. Druck’s technological leadership in pressure sensor solutions continues to deliver exceptional performance and class-leading reliability and stability for customers across multiple industrial markets.

The BakerHughesC3.ai joint venture alliance (BHC3) continued to see interest in AI-based software. In the fourth quarter, a Malaysian-based company adopted BCH3’s technology to detect failure and improve maintenance decisions on gas compressors and control valves. In addition, a Latin American customer adopted BHC3 Reliability to further improve the early warning systems and scheduled maintenance of ESPs.

Table 1c reconciles net cash flows from operating activities, which is the directly comparable financial result determined in accordance with GAAP, to free cash flow (a non-GAAP financial measure). Free cash flow is defined as net cash flows from operating activities less expenditures for capital assets plus proceeds from disposal of assets.

Management provides non-GAAP financial measures in Tables 1a, 1b, and 1c because it believes such measures are widely accepted financial indicators used by investors and analysts to analyze and compare companies on the basis of operating performance and liquidity, and that these measures may be used by investors to make informed investment decisions.

Forward-Looking Statements

This news release (and oral statements made regarding the subjects of this release) may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, (each a “forward-looking statement”). The words “anticipate,” “believe,” “ensure,” “expect,” “if,” “intend,” “estimate,” “project,” “foresee,” “forecasts,” “predict,” “outlook,” “aim,” “will,” “could,” “should,” “potential,” “would,” “may,” “probable,” “likely,” and similar expressions, and the negative thereof, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. There are many risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from our forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are also affected by the risk factors described in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the annual period ended December 31, 2019; the Company's subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q for the quarterly periods ended March 31, 2020, June 30, 2020 and September 30, 2020; and those set forth from time to time in other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The documents are available through the Company’s website at: www.investors.bakerhughes.com or through the SEC’s Electronic Data Gathering and Analysis Retrieval (“EDGAR”) system at: www.sec.gov. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement.

Our expectations regarding our business outlook and business plans; the business plans of our customers; oil and natural gas market conditions; cost and availability of resources; economic, legal and regulatory conditions, and other matters are only our forecasts regarding these matters.

These forward-looking statements, including forecasts, may be substantially different from actual results, which are affected by many risks, along with the following risk factors and the timing of any of these risk factors:

Restructuring - Our restructuring plans may not be successful and achieve the expected result; continued deterioration of market conditions, whether due to the continued spread of COVID-19 or other events could result in further restructuring costs and impairments.

COVID-19 - The continued spread of the COVID-19 virus and the continuation of the measures to try to contain the virus, such as travel bans and restrictions, quarantines, shelter in place orders, and shutdowns, and the related uncertainties.

GE Separation - The failure to successfully eliminate dependencies on GE or a failure by GE to supply products and services to us in accordance with applicable contractual terms could have a material effect on our business.

Economic and political conditions - the impact of worldwide economic conditions; the effect that declines in credit availability may have on worldwide economic growth and demand for hydrocarbons; foreign currency exchange fluctuations and changes in the capital markets in locations where we operate; and the impact of government disruptions and sanctions.

Orders and RPO - our ability to execute on orders and RPO in accordance with agreed specifications, terms and conditions and convert those orders and RPO to revenue and cash.

Oil and gas market conditions - the level of petroleum industry exploration, development and production expenditures; the price of, volatility in pricing of, and the demand for crude oil and natural gas; drilling activity; drilling permits for and regulation of the shelf and the deepwater drilling; excess productive capacity; crude and product inventories; liquefied natural gas supply and demand; seasonal and other adverse weather conditions that affect the demand for energy; severe weather conditions, such as tornadoes and hurricanes, that affect exploration and production activities; Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (“OPEC”) policy and the adherence by OPEC nations to their OPEC production quotas.

Terrorism and geopolitical risks - war, military action, terrorist activities or extended periods of international conflict, particularly involving any petroleum-producing or -consuming regions; labor disruptions, civil unrest or security conditions where we operate; potentially burdensome taxation, expropriation of assets by governmental action; cybersecurity risks and cyber incidents or attacks; epidemic outbreaks.
