The oil and gas industry is under immense strain. Reduced demand, increased focus on renewables, security threats, and extreme weather conditions all present challenges; but the industry is responding with greater operational efficiency, increasing production while lowering costs.
Connectivity is a key part of this programme. With the reliable and timely receipt of critical data from remote sites, and the ability to execute commands remotely, producers are able to reduce the necessity to dispatch field workers, which lowers costs and enables faster response times.
As pipelines necessarily travel through remote areas, satellite connectivity is the best choice for reliability and security; with Ground Control’s solutions, you’re also better able to manage costs, with remote enablement / disabling of tracking devices as needed, and the ability to leverage cellular networks if available.
