[Via Satellite 08-27-2015] SpeedCast has been awarded a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract for the delivery of satellite communications and network services by InterOil Corporation, a leading independent oil and gas business with operations dedicated to Papua New Guinea.
InterOil will use a field connectivity solution, including containerized satellite data and voice communications units, network services, and mobile satellite solutions to connect 12 locations in the Gulf Province of Papua New Guinea. The locations include base camps, construction sites, and remote rig sites that require rapid mobilization and demobilization.
For the new contract, SpeedCast proposed services that use C-, Ku- and L-band frequencies to meet the specific requirements of InterOil. The company will use the network to connect field locations for data- and voice-related Instant Messaging (IM) services. The addition of primary and secondary satellite connections is expected to provide greater availability while the containerized rig site solution and construction site solution should deliver greater portability.
