Combining Baker Hughes energy technology expertise with C3 AI technology
AI-based applications on a hardened AI platform
BHC3 applications leverage advanced machine learning and AI technology to uncover patterns from large data sets, enabling predictive action for oil and gas operations. BHC3 SaaS applications are cloud agnostic and address challenges across the upstream, midstream and downstream sectors.
A powerful alliance: BHC3 on Microsoft Azure
This strategic alliance brings together an ecosystem of technology specialists to help the energy industry more rapidly scale digital transformation programs. We have integrated and optimized BHC3 AI applications on Microsoft Azure, delivering our technology on Azure's established and secure cloud platform that meets the global compliance needs of highly regulated industries, including energy.
Digital transformation in oil and gas
AI offers significant potential for true business transformation. BHC3’s AI technologies can impact all aspects of energy-related operational efficiencies, including improving reliability and reducing downtime, optimizing production, and increasing yield. AI also extends beyond industrial operations to help organizations reimagine and redefine their businesses, supporting critical business priorities such as the energy transition.
Enterprise AI for petrochemical reliability
A global top 10 petrochemical manufacturer with operations in more than 40 countries configured BHC3™ Reliability for a key chemical production plant to avoid unplanned downtime. Potential system shutdowns and production downtime impact production availability and performance as well as product quality. At one chemical production plant, these issues contributed to more than $100 million per year in maintenance costs and lost revenue. The company engaged BakerHughesC3.ai to deploy BHC3 Reliability for identification of equipment failure risks, as well as risks from process upsets across the plant’s 16 production systems. The company was able to identify anomalous operations and receive early warning of critical issues with advance notice ranging from 10 days to 6 months.

Downtime can lead to lost production, unanticipated maintenance costs, unnecessary emissions, and unsafe conditions. BHC3 applications cover entire systems, using machine learning to identify anomalous conditions.
AI applied to operational data can help detect, reduce, and prevent emissions and reduce energy use. BHC3 applications address business energy management as well as specific oil and gas use cases such as refining, hydrocarbon loss, and production and emissions balancing.
Efficiencies in the supply chain represent significant value for energy businesses. BHC3’s AI solutions can ingest large amounts of historical data to learn patterns in materials management and anticipate future needs. The result is reduced inventory and improved on-time delivery.
AI helps deliver efficiency, safety, and remote operations programs for upstream businesses. BHC3 enables data integration and visibility across production fields. AI-based applications deploy machine learning models to forecast and streamline production.
