EMC VSAT for oilfield services vessels

EMC has announced that it has agreed a multi-year contract with an unnamed oilfield services company to provide satellite broadband communications for its vessels on a global basis.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Under the contract, EMC will provide equipment, bandwidth, services and support for the company’s seismic vessels and service vessels, which will be retrofitted with C- and Ku-band antennas.

The ships will have the option to supplement their regular bandwidth usage with immediate on-demand increases, to accommodate unforeseen customer projects, budget changes and other events.

“EMC has more than 35 years’ experience total, and 15 years servicing the international oil and gas sector,” said Hadassa Lutz, president of energy services at EMC.

“Today we deliver solutions to the majority of the energy industry's Top 10 global companies. This is because we offer an unprecedented value proposition of seamless global coverage, differentiating technical solutions and unmatched customer service.”

“We have 52 field service centres around the world, covering all the major energy regions, staffed by EMC-employed certified field technicians. This ensures rapid, efficient service wherever the vessels operate. In addition, our extensive internal experience in licensing will enable us to assist this customer with regulatory compliance as the vessels move from place to place around the world.”{/mprestriction}
