Proven experience in CO2 handling
High compression of CO2 is critical for the transportation and eventual storage of CO2. Compressors need to be able to handle CO2 with materials that can withstand corrosive conditions.
We offer a variety of commercially ready solutions for high-pressure and corrosive conditions.
Ongoing innovation in composite pipe to transport CO2 safely
The technical demands posed by CO2 transport will require advancements in areas such as durable composite piping.
Our flexible products have a proven capability in CO2 rich environments, supported by our dedicated research program on the topic of stress corrosion cracking and permeation of CO2 into the pipe annulus.
Leveraging 50 years of Baker Hughes experience in CO2 compression & transport
As we work to tackle the energy transition's toughest challenges, our portfolio of advanced compression technology is continuously evolving—ensuring we also meet the energy industry's most demanding requirements.

Start-up, routine inspection, shutdown, and venting of CO2 pipelines can differ considerably from natural gas pipelines. Baker Hughes offers a range of inspection and sensing technology to help protect our customers' ability to operate effectively.
- Nondestructive pipeline inspection
- Installed corrosion monitoring
- Flexible nonmetallic pipe
- Flow, gas, moisture, and pressure sensing
Baker Hughes and Borg CO2 to Collaborate to Develop Carbon Capture & Storage Hub for Industrial Cluster in Norway
Baker Hughes and Borg CO2 AS have announced a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to collaborate on a carbon capture and storage project to serve as a hub for the decarbonization of industrial sites in the Viken region of Norway.
The Borg CO2 project includes several industry partners, as well as the Port of Borg, and aims to capture and store emissions from industrial facilities located in the cities of Fredrikstad, Sarpborg, and Halden.
Borg CO2’s “industrial cluster” approach provides a prime opportunity for Baker Hughes to test and scale its wide-ranging carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) technologies portfolio on several types of processes including its Chilled Ammonia Process (CAP) and Compact Carbon Capture (CCC) solutions.
News and resources
While significant progress is being made, the industry needs to see a strong business case for CCUS. In addition to developing policies that promote investment in CCUS, DOE is investigating new ways to extract an economic benefit or additional value from capture CO2.
