Statoil Taps CapRock to Equip New Drillship with VSAT System

November 19, 2009 at 6:22 am Leave a comment

CapRock Communications announced a long-term agreement with Statoil to provide satellite communications for a new drillship in the Gulf of Mexico. While operating in some of the deepest waters hundreds of miles offshore, a reliable communications solution is critical to maintaining peak performance conditions as well as connectivity with those onshore. CapRock’s fully managed VSAT solution – complete with network design, equipment and installation and 24×7 network monitoring and management – will enable Statoil’s onboard personnel to experience voice and data communications similar to the corporate office. Crew members will be able to share data with onshore experts, enabling them to collaborate and make real-time decisions necessary for operations to continue running smoothly.

            With CapRock backhauling the communications traffic to some of Statoil’s shore-based locations, Statoil experts will be able to manage some of the offshore operations remotely from their desks, which will considerably lower travel costs.

            “Statoil demonstrates a level of excellence in its drilling operations, and we are honored to have been selected to meet that same level of excellence with our communication services,” said Eduardo Correa, CapRock VP and Managing Director – EMEA. “This award is testament to CapRock’s proven track record of reliability and quality of service, and we look forward to further broadening our relationship with Statoil.”
