Global satellite telecommunications service provider SpeedCast has won a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract to deliver services in over 20 countries to a global oil and gas service company.

The contract, with the unnamed oil and gas company, provides for the delivery of services leveraging SpeedCast’s global scale, network coverage and field support.

Keith Johnson, SVP of Energy at SpeedCast said the oil and gas company has a broad range of challenging requirements and geographic locations where SpeedCast’s managed services will provide “a critical link to deliver access to their enterprise applications and field data, thereby allowing for real-time operations.”

According to Johnson, the contract win further raises SpeedCast’s profile in the upstream energy sector and significantly advances its goal to become a leading supplier of satellite communication services to the energy industry worldwide.

“Over time, this customer has the potential to provide significant global growth to SpeedCast’s existing energy market share.

“SpeedCast has designed the solution by leveraging its global network and significant remote operations personnel in its field offices to deliver an exceptional service and uptime commitment for the customer. The initial network design encompasses over 20 countries and hundreds of remotes provided through a fully managed service. A dedicated team of SpeedCast personnel have been assigned to oversee the project, with the principle objective to deliver a superior customer experience throughout the lifecycle of the project.”

The contract announcement comes just one month after SpeedCast acquired the assets and customer contracts from Australia- based satellite communications company NewSat, with significant energy business in Australia, and which SpeedCast says further enhanced its service portfolio for the global energy and offshore sectors.

SpeedCast also acquired Hermes in March 2015, an established UK-based service provider to the energy sector globally, and Geolink in May 2015, a France-based company active in the energy sector in Africa.
