Satellite Internet for Energy Exploration
At Skycasters, we understand that in the oil, gas and mining industries, productivity is everything. With locations constantly changing and conditions often challenging, land-based communications are not always reliable or practical. And when rig communications go down, so do profits.
That’s why Skycasters is committed to providing the oil, gas and mining industries seamless, reliable satellite communication solutions that move with you to keep profits high and problems down.
Oil and gas communication solutions
Wherever energy exploration takes you, Skycasters helps get business done while you’re there. Connect geologists and subject-matter experts from HQ or regional offices to rig sites with VSAT solutions from Skycasters.
Monitor and analyze multiple drill sites simultaneously without travelling to each location. Get real-time streaming well data, make a VoIP call, fax, and SCADA monitoring using our secure VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) and Private Networks at encryption levels that satisfy even the most security-conscious federal agencies.
For business-class, high speed Internet access, our most common system combines a VSAT X3 modem and a 1.2 meter dish, which can be installed with a non-penetrating roof mount or pole mount.
Skycasters offers proven mobile and portable solutions for communications that can be mounted on a truck, RV or trailer. We also offer turn-key portable solutions that can be easily towed to an oil, gas and mining location or shipped via common carrier. Our solutions are designed to be so easy to use that even untrained personnel can set it up in less than 10 minutes for a wireless hot spot anywhere.
Skycasters offers narrowband solutions for oil and gas communications that are specifically designed to provide consistent download and upload speeds for SCADA and command and control operations. But should the need arise, our high tech data system seamlessly transitions from narrowband to broadband automatically—no switch to flip or additional call to make. And unlike our competition, it’s included in all of the solutions we offer—no extra charge and no hardware upgrade required.
