If you’re gear­ing up for the an­nual pil­grim­age to Hous­ton, Texas, for OilComm you might find our Pre­view ar­ti­cle on page 37 use­ful. Of note, the fu­ture dig­i­tal oil­field is still con­cerned with la­tency is­sues, as well as the im­pact of HTS. As we pon­der the po­ten­tial of con­nec­tiv­ity op­tions and the as­so­ci­ated tech­no­log­i­cal pos­si­bil­i­ties, both the CEOs from RigNet and In­marsat ex­plain what we can ex­pect from the com­mer­cial launch of Global Xpress at the end of this year ( see page 23). This edi­tion’s Re­mote Insight Re­port of­fers op­er­a­tors and ser­vice providers up­dated ways to cut costs and keep the en­ergy flow­ing; and on page 8 you’ll find the lat­est prod­ucts de­signed to help en­able more op­er­a­tional busi­ness on a global scale. In­ter­est­ingly, as the ship­ping sec­tor starts to ex­per­i­ment with fully au­to­mated ves­sels, Vaughan O’Grady’s ar­ti­cle on page 16 con­sid­ers the pos­si­bil­i­ties of fully au­to­mated rigs. We’d love to know what you think. You can write to us via the de­tails be­low.

Un­til next time,
