Baker Hughes opens Artificial Lift Research and Technology Center in Oklahoma

CLAREMORE, Oklahoma -- Baker Hughes has announced the opening of its Artificial Lift Research and Technology Center (ALRTC)—an employee-designed center for research, engineering, design, and testing of artificial lift technologies.

The $60 million facility was built to satisfy growing research, development, and more extensive testing requirements for the artificial lift industry.

“Baker Hughes has operated in Oklahoma since the earliest days of our industry,” said Martin Craighead, Baker Hughes Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “This facility complements the four existing facilities in Claremore." Across the state of Oklahoma, the company has more than 15 facilities, including Oklahoma City, Broken Arrow, Clinton, Sand Springs, and Yukon.

The ALRTC features comprehensive equipment needed for self-sustaining, R&D product development and operations. The Center will bring together the industry’s leading technologists, engineers, and scientists who design, manufacture, and test all the major artificial lift system components that enable operators to get more production out of their wells.
