Communication in the field requires robust and efficient technology


The logistical problems faced by oil and gas firms working over long distances and harsh environments means that a reliable system of communication technology is needed to ensure un uninterrupted process of exploration and production.

The report states that this sector will experience a 6.1 per cent compound growth rate over the next five years to reach a value of USD 3.18bn by 2019.

The report says that: “As per the estimates of Digital Oilfields World Summit, by 2015, the digital oilfield market would grow by 40per cent. The adoption of digital oilfield technology must be supported by robust and effective communication network infrastructure. Intelligent use and integration of telecommunication networks are critical factors for establishing and developing efficient and dynamic communication network infrastructure.Reliable and robust communication infrastructure in remote and harsh oilfields enables better-informed decision making between offshore and onshore operations.”
