Oil & Gas Field Communications

Oil and gas fields often span hundreds and even thousands of square miles across remote areas that often lack cellular coverage.

Extreme outdoor conditions are typical in many of these fields such as intense cold, ice and snow, searing heat, heavy dust, high humidity, strong wind, torrential rain and salt fog.

Oil and gas field communications require reliable and resilient, high capacity wireless networks that operate over large areas under extreme environmental conditions. Ideally, wireless oil and gas communication networks deliver broadband speeds and form a scalable foundation to securely support multiple applications that increase operational efficiency and safety on one cost-effective physical infrastructure. A single network should simultaneously support a range of fixed and mobile oil and gas exploration and production applications such as:

SCADA – production and injection well monitoring, measurement, logging and control; source and disposal water well monitoring; storage tank monitoring and control; emergency equipment shutdown and recovery

Real-time video feeds and surveillance – provides operations with remote situational awareness and information that can facilitate decisions, improve safety, and deliver early visibility into critical situations unfolding

Security and surveillance systems – enhance facility security with electronic access control at entry points or secure locations in the facility; video security at gates or around the site perimeter

Drill rig communications and diagnostics – monitor drill bit depth and tilt, mud weight, temperatures and pressures; remotely run diagnostics and analyze results

Asset tracking – track and update the location of fixed and mobile assets in the field improves operations and contributes to safety and security

Field workforce connectivity – keep work crews in the field connected with access to SCADA data, instant messaging and email at remote sites even if they lack cell service

Voice – IP phones for mobile workers even in remote areas improves operational efficiency and worker safety

ABB broadband wireless network solutions provide oil and gas exploration and production communications for various companies and applications, including those listed in the customers.
