[Via Satellite 01-14-2015] SES and ITC Global have signed a strategic partnership to provide satellite connectivity to oil and gas operations worldwide. Working together, the two companies are providing a range of solutions including broadband, private corporate networks and voice, video and data services.
Jumpstarting the new relationship, SES and ITC Global are deploying an enterprise network for a global oil producer. Using three SES satellites and ITC Global’s integration expertise, the customer is using satellite connectivity for services such as broadband and live HD video coverage of ocean floor drilling activities throughout its operations in Alaska’s Prudhoe Bay, the Gulf of Mexico, and Trinidad and Tobago.
“This major oil producer can now remotely and securely manage its operation — tracking everything from the direction of the drill bit piercing the ocean floor to the volume of oil flowing from offshore wells through a vast system of pipelines,” said Joe Spytek, CEO of ITC Global. “Oil and gas operations are interconnected around the world, and we will leverage the global SES constellation to meet the escalating connectivity demand around the world.”
