Qual­i­tynet, Kuwait’s No. 1 In­ter­net, In­for­ma­tion and Data Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Tech­nol­ogy Ser­vices provider yes­ter­day an­nounced its suc­cess­ful ac­com­plish­ment of a Tele­com Project ini­ti­ated by one of the world’s largest Oil & Gas Op­er­a­tors, to con­nect its sites in Ru­maila Southern Iraq with mul­ti­ple cities world­wide.

Mo­hammed Al-Nusif, CEO stated that the com­pany is quite ex­cited about win­ning the project, es­pe­cially the large scale im­pli­ca­tions it would have for the com­pany and its staff. “The project is quite chal­leng­ing and is among the largest we’ve un­der­taken so far. The bid­ding process took months of strin­gent in­ter­views, doc­u­men­ta­tion and pre­sen­ta­tions, with par­tic­i­pa­tion from the big­gest In­ter­na­tional brands in the Tele­com Seg­ment. Our team’s pro­posal emerged vic­to­ri­ous at the end, and we are now gear­ing to­wards ex­e­cut­ing the so­lu­tion within Southern Iraq and on­wards to lo­ca­tions across the globe, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with our In­ter­na­tional part­ners”.

Ru­maila is a su­per­giant oil­field lo­cated in Southern Iraq, and is op­er­ated by the Ru­maila Op­er­at­ing Or­ga­ni­za­tion (ROO) - a joint ven­ture be­tween the big­gest names in the O&G sec­tor. ROO in­vited the Tele­com in­dus­try’s finest to pro­pose a so­lu­tion that would con­nect its sites in Ru­maila with its of­fices lo­cated across the globe in Europe, Asia and the Mid­dle East.

“Im­ple­ment­ing this project brought up many chal­lenges, es­pe­cially given an un­der­de­vel­oped sec­tor like Iraq” said Mo­hammed. “Find­ing the right tech­nol­ogy part­ners with the know-how to im­ple­ment so­lu­tions for the avail­able in­fra­struc­ture and ter­rain in Iraq, roll-out sched­ules that clashed with un­ex­pected weather con­di­tions in Iraq and Europe, and the strict HSE stan­dards were among the many chal­lenges faced and con­quered”. He added that Qual­i­tynet’s teams are work­ing on­site in Iraq and Europe at present, test­ing and im­ple­ment­ing the so­lu­tion as per the agreed roll-out sched­ules.

Mo­hammed un­der­lined how this project show­cases Qual­i­tynet’s ca­pa­bil­i­ties on a global scale. “A com­plex com­mu­ni­ca­tions project of this size brings to the fore­front our tech­ni­cal prow­ess and ca­pa­bil­ity to ex­e­cute even the most chal­leng­ing of re­quire­ments in any given sit­u­a­tion. We work with the best, em­ploy pro­fi­cient re­sources and de­liver projects on-time in ac­cor­dance with the high­est of qual­ity stan­dards”, said Mo­hammed. He con­cluded by say­ing that this project has strength­ened Qual­i­tynet’s project port­fo­lio both in Iraq and within the O&G Sec­tor glob­ally, and that the com­pany is cur­rently work­ing on sim­i­lar projects within the sec­tor.
