with an increased resistance
Baker Hughes has pioneered new gas discharge head, can improve overall efficiency to housing perforations due to
handling technology with the GM and reliability. These unmatched designs are abrasive-laden fluids
Performance Series high volume rotary and the key to enhanced gas handlingproviding
vortex gas separator. Historically, multiphase higher, two-phase fluid flow. The HAVA
fluid wells have proven challenging for generates higher pressures, delivering more
electrical submersible pumping (ESP) energy to push larger volumes of gas out into
systems. We lead the industry with innovative the well annulus, eliminating gas locking and
technology designed to maximize production extending the application range of ESP systems
from wells with high free gas content. in multiphase fluid wells.

The GM Performance Series technology raises The rotary gas separator enhances efficiency

find out how the GM Performance Series gas
separator is designed to maximize production
from wells with high free gas content.

The Baker Hughes high-pressure gas test loop is a unique, highly instrumented,
state-of-the-art testing facility; the only one of its kind in the industry. This allows our
engineers to optimize the gas separator design to offer the best results from wells
with high gas content.
