Connecting onshore and offshore assets. Fiber optic cable networks are the most effective, 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 increase field monitoring capabilities, 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 methods of telecommunication between offshore platforms and onshore locations, 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.
