Digital Oilfield Untapped Resources

Offshore telecom operators and O&G companies untap hidden business potential with PointLink Access

Are you servicing or operating in the offshore oil and gas (O&G) industry? Are your personnel working in remote and harsh environments with seabed depths of 1,000m or more, the blackest of nights, limited visibility, or severe storms with high winds and wave heights reaching up to 30m? Indeed, the conditions in which offshore networks need to be deployed and run present many challenges to network planners in the O&G industry.

  • Reduce costs for drilling and other on-site operations
  • Improve fleet and vessel operations
  • Reduce unplanned shutdowns
  • Perform on-time maintenance for key equipment
  • Improve crew morale and retention
  • Increase safety at high-risk sites (geography/security/weather)
  • Minimize environmental concerns
  • Reliably monitor drilling activity, track production and extend the office to offshore oil platforms to deliver improved operational effectiveness
  • Provide reliable connectivity and performance by minimizing interference to zero; the stabilized nature of LTE/4G /Wi-Fi/MW antennas, with the base station as the focal point, ensures that interference coming from various directions (including other network users, signals and even onshore) has little-to-no impact on the intended service experience of offshore sites
  • Maintain communications regardless of movements/motions (location, heave, yaw, pitch and roll) and ensure that service is not affected by environmental factors
  • Avoid costly, often submarine fiber deployments and changes in the terrestrial network
  • Lower total cost of ownership (TCO) by replacing expensive satellite connectivity
