RigNet bags multi-vessel contract for comms network

RigNet, a provider of communications solutions for the international offshore oil and gas industry, has been awarded a multi-vessel contract for the provision of a managed communications network.

RigNet said on Tuesday that the contract is with an ‘international offshore energy service company’ that performs well intervention, subsea contracting and other services without disclosing financial details of the contract.

The company is also delivering communication services to a ‘national oil company’ and the vessel owner through its customer for their operations in Brazil.

Steven Pickett, RigNet CEO and president, said: “We are delighted to be given the opportunity to provide RigNet’s managed services and Network Operation Center’s support to our customer and the two other customers onboard the vessels. Our valued customer performs critical services to a wide variety of energy customers.”

RigNet said it will use VSAT technology to deliver a fully managed, end-to-end, network for the vessels.

The contract includes managed communications by RigNet’s Global Network Operation Centers (GNOC) for technical support, which will include installation, commission, monitoring, and maintenance.
