OffComm News - - NEWS -

RigNet, Inc. has been tasked, by a premium off­shore driller, to en­able its fleet of ex­ist­ing and new build rigs. The deal in­cludes com­pre­hen­sive man­aged re­mote communications, as well as the pro­vi­sion and main­te­nance of both sta­bi­lized and fixed an­ten­nas across the cus­tomer’s fleet of jack­ups, drill ships, and semisub­mersibles op­er­at­ing in the US Gulf of Mex­ico, Asia Pa­cific, Europe, and Africa re­gions. “The in­creas­ing com­plex­ity of off­shore drilling op­er­a­tions is driv­ing de­mand for ro­bust, re­li­able dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy so­lu­tions,” said Hec­tor May­torena, RigNet’s Group VP of Man­aged Ser­vices. Im­ple­ment­ing re­struc­tur­ing tac­tics ear­lier this year, the com­pany has stream­lined costs in line with ac­tiv­ity lev­els in the up­stream en­ergy mar­ket. “As RigNet gets bet­ter vis­i­bil­ity into oil and gas industry ac­tiv­ity lev­els, we see ad­di­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties to im­ple­ment in­ter­nal op­er­a­tional ef­fi­cien­cies and process im­prove­ments to en­able cost- ef­fec­tive so­lu­tions for our cus­tomers in a chal­leng­ing macro en­vi­ron­ment,” said Mark Slaugh­ter, RigNet’s CEO and Pres­i­dent.
