Increasing engineering complexity, consortia complexity and regulatory requirements are becoming a volatile mix for the oil and gas industry presenting unique challenges. Nothing is getting simpler; in fact exactly the opposite is true. Many new oil-rich territories are being found in deeper, more remote locations that are not usually well-connected. But still the requirement for Health and Safety Reporting and the voluminous regulations that come with this industry have to be sent and received at wherever location the exploration teams are in. How does HQ communicate with the remote operators? Up to date information, data and documentation have to be sent and received. This is generally achieved with Satellite. So what happens when Satellite networks degrade and are interrupted? How does that essential information get to the remote users? This paper discusses that challenge.
