Connecting onshore and offshore assets. Fiber optic cable networks are the most efficient, most secure and most reliable way to transmit information between offshore fields, and from offshore fields to onshore facilities. Oil companies use high-speed fiber networks to support risk management and improve field safety records, to vastly improve field monitoring, to greatly enhance remote field operations and to take advantage of real-time information that expands field economies. While radio, satellite and VSAT have historically been the most used methods of telecommunications between offshore platforms and onshore operations, operators are now realizing that subsea cables provide a future-proof field solution that is both highly reliable and extremely secure.
OSI led the development of the first purpose built independently operated oil and gas network, and has continued this industry leadership role, actively developing more oil and gas telecommunications networks than any other project development or engineering organization.
In answer to expanding customer requirements for our services and their need for carrier grade network operations, OSI has formed Radius Oceanic Communications, building on our oil and gas network development expertise to implement a commercially viable model for the long-term operations and maintenance (O&M) of end-to-end networks.
