Gilat to deploy SATCOM connectivity for Petrobras O&G

Gilat solutions deployed to modernise and expand the connectivity of platforms, ships, and land stations of Brazil's oil and gas company.

Gilat Satellite Networks has been selected by Sencinet for Petrobras’ oil and gas industry satellite connectivity project.

Petrobras, Brazil’s largest oil and gas company, is modernising and expanding its onshore/offshore telecommunications capabilities with satellite connectivity solutions powered by Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c SATCOM network.

Sencinet is deploying Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c within offshore platforms, ships, and land stations as part of the innovative managed services satellite connectivity project they are providing to Petrobras.

Commenting on the deal, Jayme Ribeiro, Sales and Marketing Executive Director at Sencinet, said: “Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c multi-service platform offers many advantages, such as software VNO across multiple beams that permits us to meet the stringent service-level agreement (SLA) requirements of Petrobras with high quality and optimised deployment, as well as a smooth migration from Petrobras’ legacy network. There is a broad market for solutions like these all across Brazil and together with Gilat we plan to accelerate our growth with companies that provide services to Petrobras, as well as with private oil and supply boat companies involved in exploration and logistics throughout the country.”

Michal Aharonov, Chief Commercial Officer at Gilat, added: “I am pleased with the opportunity to expand and modernize Petrobras’ legacy network, helping Petrobras address today’s most demanding and complex business communication challenges. Working together with Sencinet, our valued partner in the region, we’re able to deploy Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c multi-service platform to deliver a wide range of benefits to the oil and gas industry, as well as to other important markets in Latin America.”
