[Via Satellite 12-08-2015] RigNet has been awarded a new master services agreement to deliver communications systems and infrastructure for multiple land drilling and well completion sites in the continental United States and Western Canada. The scope of work includes the installation and management of mission-critical communications and data infrastructure for multiple land drilling and well completion sites across a 36-month operations schedule. The undisclosed customer is involved in exploration and production in unconventional shale basins.
RigNet-provided managed services include a fully-redundant telecommunications solution with LTE and VSAT, including dedicated voice and data connectivity, personnel radio communications and 24/7 IT support for the land operator and health, safety and environmental personnel on each site.
“Our customer’s operations extend from Western Canada all the way to states along the U.S. Gulf Coast. The scalability of our agreement enables RigNet to provide the volume of service required in today’s drilling environment, while enabling us to grow with this important customer should market conditions improve, as expected, over the term of the agreement,” said Mark Slaughter, CEO and president of RigNet.
