Where an unmanned drilling operation has been established, frequent visits to the site are either impossible or extremely costly. An oil and gas company needs to be able to rely on uninterrupted operations while having full visibility of operations on-site to ensure maximum productivity and diagnose potential issues early. Datasat is a leading communications ervice porvider that provides the satellite and wireless communications networks to enable the effective management and protection of unmanned drilling operations – regardless the remoteness of the location.

The Benefits of Video Surveillance

Previously, the assets on remote sites were monitored primarily via low-bandwidth SCADA data applications. Datasat enables these remote monitoring systems to be augmented with video images. The company's outdoor wireless technology has been optimised to work with the latest generation of video and rich media network traffic. By placing intelligence at the network edge, Datasat networks can prioritise video network traffic so that, when events of interest occur, the images can be fed any where in the world in real time. Allied to either local or centralised Datasat video management systems, this allows for rapid decision making and personnel response where required.
