Thuraya provides critical communications to keep oilfield data flowing. The international oil and gas industry defines the concept of a ‘24×7 business’. Perhaps more than in any other sector, energy exploration and production companies expect predictable operations around the clock.
Thuraya EnergyComms provides Alkan and MCS with vital communication links to keep oilfield data flowing
In a business where the impact of stopped production resulting from a breakdown can be measured in millions of dollars, oil companies look to providers of oilfield services for solutions that keep products flowing safely. When specialist oilfield services contractor MCS wanted to transmit video streams from its subsea pipeline inspection module to its clients, it turned to Thuraya service partner, Alkan Telecom for a solution that would keep reliable and continuous data flow. The risk of a serious anomaly or equipment failure in a subsea structure has the potential to cause environmental and economic catastrophe. To improve risk management procedures, oil and gas operators have invested in systems that provide real-time monitoring, enabling them to make better decisions on maintenance and intervention on subsea pipelines and platforms.
