RigNet to offer expanded services to Qatar-based drilling services provider

Services include VoIP, enterprise data and internet access services, supported by network monitoring tools, 24x7 telephone support services and onsite field services.

RigNet Qatar W.L.L., has been chosen by an unnamed drilling services provider active in Qatar to deliver managed network solutions for one additional offshore accommodation jack-up drilling rig and two additional land drilling rigs in the company’s fleet. These services have been added to an existing five-year fleet contract between RigNet Qatar W.L.L. and the unnamed customer.

Services include VoIP, enterprise data and internet access services, supported by network monitoring tools, 24×7 telephone support services and onsite field services, as required, with backhaul to the company’s office via MPLS connection

The solution includes network design, equipment and installation, as well as service and 24/7 network monitoring and support from RigNet’s new Global Network Operations Center.

”We are very proud and wish to thank this world-class drilling services provider for selecting RigNet’s managed remote communication services for these additional remote assets,” said Chris C. Lambert, general manager of RigNet’s Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia Region with headquarters in Doha, Qatar.  “I believe this is another testament to RigNet’s commitment to service quality, reliability, and local Qatar market strength,” he added.
