The Entire Comms Solutions for Two Major O&G Projects Awarded to SpeedCast

Speedcast International Limited (ASX: SDA) has won two new systems integration projects with a leading fabricator for the oil and gas industry.  

In both contracts, Speedcast has been named telecoms systems integrator and will be responsible for all telecommunications components. Under the terms of the agreements, Speedcast will design, integrate, test and deliver the entire communications systems solution.

The first of these projects is in support of a new wellhead platform to be located offshore Brazil and the telecom package includes 14 systems. The second of these projects is for a new pipeline support platform to be located in the Gulf of Mexico and the telecom package includes 19 systems. These systems include elements such as wide-area and local-area networks, closed-circuit television (CCTV), company phone, public address and general alarm (PAGA), television receive-only (TVRO) and meteorological monitoring.

Speedcast’s systems integration experience spans 30 years and includes engineering and design, procurement, testing, installation and maintenance for complete communications needs — from entertainment systems and security and monitoring services to navigation equipment, video streaming, IoT and more.

Keith Johnson, the EVP of Energy at Speedcast, stated that these wins not only position the company well for ongoing and continued support of these projects, but also for future projects. The firm's global systems integration team offers customers tremendous value by ensuring their communication system needs are designed, integrated and installed using an experienced, certified and trained global team.
