Nawras has signed an agreement with Oman-based international drilling contractor Dalma Energy to link all the company’s land and mobile rigs in remote sites across Oman to the corporate office in Muscat, using VSAT solutions.

Issa Al Kharusi, Nawras’ Section Head – Key Accounts, says: “Nawras is committed to supporting business in Oman and contributing to the prosperity and development of companies through pleasingly different communications solutions. VSAT uses satellites to provide connectivity in remote sites where terrestrial networks are not available, such as for oil or gas rigs in the middle of the desert.”

Dalma Energy owns and operates land rigs throughout the MENA region. The company uses the VSAT solution for communications links to all sites with the majority using VSAT technology since the end of 2012. This service from Nawras will further enhance operations and allow for monitoring and coordination of activities at each site while improving efficiency.
