	SCHEDULE 13G - TO BE INCLUDED IN 
STATEMENTS
	FILED PURSUANT TO RULE 13d-1(b) or 13d-2(b)

	Pursuant to instructions in Item 7 of Schedule 13G, this 
Exhibit has been prepared  to identify Fidelity International 
Limited, Pembroke Hall, 42 Crow Lane, Hamilton, Bermuda, 
a Bermudan joint stock company incorporated for an 
unlimited duration by private act of the Bermuda Legislature 
(FIL) and an investment adviser to various investment 
companies (the "International Funds") and certain institutional 
investors, as a beneficial owner of the 213,900 shares or 
0.064% of the Common Stock outstanding of Baker Hughes 
Incorporated.

	Prior to June 30, 1980, FIL was a majority-owned 
subsidiary of Fidelity Management & Research Company 
(Fidelity), a wholly-owned subsidiary of FMR Corp.  On that 
date, the shares of FIL held by Fidelity were distributed, as a 
dividend,  to the shareholders of FMR Corp.  FIL currently 
operates as an entity independent of FMR Corp. and Fidelity.  
The International Funds and FIL's other clients, with the 
exception of Fidelity and an affiliated company of Fidelity, are 
non-U.S. entities.

	A partnership controlled by Edward C. Johnson 3d and 
members of his family owns shares of FIL voting stock with 
the right to cast approximately 39.89% of the total votes which 
may be cast by all holders of FIL voting stock.  Mr. Johnson 
3d is Chairman of FMR Corp. and FIL.  FMR Corp. and FIL 
are separate and independent corporate entities, and their 
Boards of Directors are generally composed of different 
individuals.  Other than when one serves as a sub adviser to 
the other, their investment decisions are made independently, 
and their clients are generally different organizations.

	FMR Corp. and FIL are of the view that they are not 
acting as a "group" for purposes of Section 13(d) under the 
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "1934" Act) and that 
they are not otherwise required to attribute to each other the 
"beneficial ownership" of securities "beneficially owned" by 
the other corporation within the meaning of Rule 13d-3 
promulgated under the 1934 Act.  Therefore, they are of the 
view that the shares held by the other corporation need not be 
aggregated for purposes of Section 13(d). However, FMR 
Corp. is making this filing on a voluntary basis as if all of the 
shares are beneficially owned by FMR Corp. and FIL on a 
joint basis.

	FIL may continue to have the International Funds or 
other accounts purchase shares subject to a number of factors, 
including, among others, the availability of shares for sale at 
what FIL considers to be reasonable prices and other 
investment opportunities that may be available to the 
International Funds.

	FIL intends to review continuously the equity position 
of the International Funds and other accounts in the Company.  
Depending upon its future evaluations of the business and 
prospects of the Company and upon other developments, 
including, but not limited to, general economic and business 
conditions and money market and stock market conditions, 
FIL may determine to cease making additional purchases of 
shares or to increase or decrease the equity interest in the 
Company by acquiring additional shares, or by disposing of all 
or a portion of the shares.

	FIL does not have a present plan or proposal which 
relates to or would result in (i) an extraordinary corporate 
transaction, such as a merger, reorganization, liquidation, or 
sale or transfer of a material amount of assets involving the 
Company or any of its subsidiaries, (ii) any change in the 
Company's present Board of Directors or management, (iii) 
any material changes in the Company's present capitalization 
or dividend policy or any other material change in the 
Company's business or corporate structure, (iv) any change in 
the Company's charter or by-laws, or (v) the Company's 
common stock becoming eligible for termination of its 
registration pursuant to Section 12(g)(4) of the 1934 Act.

	FIL  has sole power to vote and the sole power to 
dispose of  213,900  shares.
