Advanced connectivity for Oil & Gas exploration and production
Ground Control delivers remote connectivity solutions to power Oil & Gas IoT applications and support global, off-grid operations.
Delivering all the tools you need, to monitor your assets and optimize operations and your investment. From exploration to flowback testing, and drilling to recovery – we’ve got you covered at every stage of the oil well lifecycle.
Serving the entire Oil & Gas supply chain
The Oil & Gas industry is in the midst of rapid change. Recent years have seen substantial operational improvements to the field through the collection of data from sensors, data recorders, digital equipment and SCADA control systems. All facilitated by advanced connectivity.
With reliable and timely receipt of critical data from all sites, and the ability to execute commands remotely, companies can increase production and safety, while reducing costs. Maximize equipment uptime with online remote monitoring and diagnostics tools, to diagnose problems before production time is lost, or worse, a breakdown occurs.
Quickly activate emergency shut-down systems and secure back haul of IoT networks, with two-way satellite connectivity.
To reliably monitor and automate control throughout your entire pipeline, you will need to consider the frequency, volume of data, how devices will be powered, and the level of security you’re looking for. Not sure which is the best fit for your organization? Our experienced team can help.
