“Despite continued uncertainty in global oil and gas markets and the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we produced solid results in the third quarter of 2020. I am pleased with the continued execution on cost-out from our Oilfield Services (OFS) and Oilfield Equipment (OFE) teams, the commercial success and performance from Turbomachinery & Process Solutions (TPS) and Digital Solutions (DS), and our continued free cash flow generation during the quarter. I am proud of our employees and their continued commitment to delivering for our customers and shareholders,” said Lorenzo Simonelli, Baker Hughes Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

“After significant turmoil during the first half of the year, oil markets have somewhat stabilized. However, demand recovery is beginning to level off and significant excess capacity remains, which could create volatility in the future. The outlook for natural gas is slightly more optimistic as forward prices have improved with strong demand in Asia and lower expected future gas production in the U.S.

“Despite the uncertain macro environment, we are executing on the framework we laid out earlier this year. We are on track to hit our goals of right-sizing the business, generating free cash flow, and achieving $700 million in annualized cost savings by year end.

"As we move forward, we are intensely focused on improving the margin and return profile of Baker Hughes despite the near-term macro volatility, while at the same time executing on our long-term strategy to evolve our portfolio along with the energy landscape. Baker Hughes remains committed to leading the energy transition and becoming a key enabler to decarbonizing oil and gas and other industries,” concluded Simonelli.

Quarter Highlights

Supporting our Customers

The TPS segment secured a major LNG order with longtime partner Qatar Petroleum to supply multiple main refrigerant compressors for Qatar Petroleum’s North Field East (NFE) project, executed by Qatargas. The total award is part of four LNG “mega trains,” representing 33 million tons per annum (MTPA) of additional capacity. As part of Baker Hughes’ commitment to support customers in decarbonizing their operations, the latest compression technology for the NFE project is expected to reduce emissions by ~5% versus previous technologies.

TPS also continued to innovate its FPSO technologies to support sustainable operations. The business was awarded a FPSO contract in Latin America for power generation, compression, and related equipment, including six LM2500+G4 gas turbines and two high pressure compressors for gas reinjection. The contract includes major capital spare parts and services.

The OFS segment delivered 83% of its global drilling services jobs remotely, compared to 72% in the second quarter. OFS remote operations have led to consistently better outcomes for customers at a record pace, and remote drilling increased most prominently in Asia Pacific (APAC) and the Middle East, and 100% of drilling jobs were completed using remote operations in Latin America and the Russia Caspian Region.

In the OFE segment, the Flexible Pipe Systems product line continues to gain traction in China, and was awarded a contract for high temperature subsea flexible jumpers and associated equipment as part of an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) project.

OFE also secured a major services contract for the supply of conductor casings for all the deep well drilling programs and associated logistics for a customer in the Middle East. The contract affirms OFE's status as the preferred supplier for premium connectors and casings.

The DS segment secured a major three-year frame agreement with Petrobras for multiple solutions from our Bently Nevada, Nexus Controls, and Panametrics product lines to enhance the customer’s operations through risk mitigation and performance standardization and improvements. A broad range of condition monitoring sensors will be deployed including wireless, vibration and motor sensors, as well as plant control systems, and flare flow meters. The agreement is the largest Bently Nevada order ever for Latin America and includes the latest generation Orbit 60 system launched in 2019.

DS also secured several contracts to deliver advanced technologies for LNG, power generation, and pipeline infrastructure. Bently Nevada was awarded a five-year agreement with Sonatrach in Algeria, providing a range of vibration monitoring systems for multiple LNG and liquid petroleum gas plants. Panametrics secured a three-year contract with Snam for ultrasonic flow meters, helping to ensure 32,000+ km of pipelines in Italy remain stable and safe.

Executing on Priorities

Following several consecutive quarters securing large downstream chemicals contracts, the OFS Chemicals product line continued to win contracts in the third quarter including a five-year contract to provide process and fuel treatment products and services to HollyFrontier in North America. OFS will provide hydrocarbon treatment products and services at HollyFrontier’s four U.S. refineries.

OFS also continued to focus on its differentiated portfolio with another consecutive quarter securing multi-year contracts for drilling services, completions, and artificial lift. In Guyana, OFS secured a five-year contract for drilling services, drill bits, and drilling and completion fluids. The Artificial Lift product line was awarded a contract for equipment and services in offshore Qatar, displacing a major competitor.

TPS achieved important execution milestones for LNG projects in the third quarter. In September, TPS completed the successful mechanical and performance tests for one of its largest size expander-compressors for Novatek’s Arctic LNG 2 project. TPS also completed the first phase of the Calcasieu Pass LNG project with Venture Global, shipping the first two equipment modules from Baker Hughes’ facility in Italy to the U.S.

DS continued to drive growth across industrial end markets, including aerospace and automotive. Bently Nevada achieved its first order for the Orbit 60 system outside of the oil and gas sector, signing a contract with an iron ore mining customer in Australia. The Waygate Technologies product line launched a unique high energy CT scanner system and secured a large multi-year inspection service order with a space exploration customer. In China, DS won multiple orders for sensor and inspection technologies with electric vehicle and aerospace OEMs.

Leading with Innovation

Baker Hughes continued to drive advancements in leading technologies while supporting its strategy to lead in the energy transition. TPS successfully tested the world’s first “hybrid” hydrogen turbine designed for a gas network with Snam, paving the way to implement adoption of hydrogen blended with natural gas in Snam’s current transportation network infrastructure. The test used a NovaLT™12 gas turbine with a 10% blend of hydrogen with natural gas. Once installed, the turbine can compress and move hydrogen fuel blends through Snam’s network of pipelines while using the same fuel to power itself, significantly contributing to the reduction of CO2 emissions in Italy.

OFS introduced the Lucida advanced rotary steerable service, which integrates hardware, software, automation, and remote connectivity to help customers drill faster and deliver more precise, higher-quality wells. The service fully complements OFS’ automation and remote operations services. Lucida is designed to maximize directional drilling performance and well productivity by incorporating advanced electronics and near-bit sensors that enable drillers to more precisely guide bottomhole assemblies.

OFE launched the Terminator vessel-deployed subsea wellhead cutting system, using a first-of-its-kind mechanical wellhead removal method to reduce time, fuel consumption and safety risks . Terminator was successfully launched with Wintershall DEA in Norway, cutting a subsea wellhead from an abandoned exploration well in 360 meters of water in only 35 minutes, compared to five or six hours with alternative abrasive cutting methods. Terminator joins the Subsea Connect suite of technologies for OFE and OFS customers, and it is smaller and lighter than previous systems.

DS continued to gain traction with its innovative Flare.IQ technology, securing a five-year contract with a North American customer. A key technology in Baker Hughes’ energy transition portfolio, Flare.IQ helps operators manage their flare assets remotely and can also reduce methane emissions, ensure high-efficiency flare combustion, and reduce steam usage in flare systems using advanced sensors and analytics.

The BakerHughesC3.ai joint venture alliance secured a contract with a customer in the North Sea for BHC3™ Reliability. BHC3 Reliability is a comprehensive software solution that provides reliability engineers, process engineers, and maintenance managers with AI-enabled insights to address process and equipment performance risks. The application delivers value through increased revenue from recovered production, reduced costs of unplanned downtime, extended equipment life, and improved safety in operations.

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 report of Form 10-Q for quarterly periods ended June 30, 2020 and March 31, 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.
