Hughes Europe + GVF... Speaking On SatCom (Event)

[SatNews] One of the highlights of the forthcoming 4th Annual GVF (Global VSAT Forum) Oil & Gas Communications Europe Conference, will be Simon Watts, chief engineer at Hughes Europe.

He will examine how providers of satellite and satellite-hybrid services are responding positively to the increasing demand for new commercial oil and gas applications. The Conference, being held in Aberdeen, will run from May 17 to 18 and is an important event in the industry calendar, bringing together operators and vendors in an open-forum debate to discuss the key issues affecting the oil and gas supply sector. “In expanding our presence in the upstream market, Hughes customers can benefit from our wealth of retail oil and gas experience,” said Watts. “Globally, the oil and gas sector remains an important growth market for Hughes.
