For dependable voice and data connectivity for field workers and cost-effective remote or virtual offices. For complete operational visibility and remote control of extraction and distribution infrastructure. For maximum safety on remote exploratory and production sites. Only Inmarsat can deliver the services and solutions to maximise operational efficiency for the energy sector throughout a project’s lifecycle, from exploration and site communications, to remote monitoring, personnel safety and crew welfare.


Exploring increasingly remote and hostile locations is a huge challenge. As potential drilling sites are becoming harder to find, your teams on the ground need to deliver instant survey results to the lab and maintain fast, secure connections with corporate HQ. Challenges that are exacerbated without access to reliable connectivity. That’s where our portfolio of satellite connectivity services come in.

Whether it is using our compact and rugged BGAN terminals to connect remote workers and cost-effective mobile offices or our Land Xpress service to deliver high volumes of data from the field to HQ, we can help connect your exploration operations like never before.

Remote monitoring and control 

From rapid troubleshooting and the remote fixing of faults to assisting engineers in the field. From remotely monitoring site security or your road tanker fleet to aiding environmental monitoring following site closure. Managing and remotely checking the conditions and status of all your fixed and mobile assets is critical to ensure you maintain productivity and minimise downtime.

Within our global M2M connectivity services, we can ensure you have complete 24/7 operational visibility and control of your extraction and distribution infrastructure, no matter how remote. Whether it is using our IsatData Pro service to monitor road tanker fleets or using BGAN M2M to access real-time flow rate monitoring for oil pipelines, we ensure you stay productive, stay secure and stay connected.

Site communications

Maintaining communications from any new or established site is essential. A connected, smart drilling site means a more profitable operation. Yet this relies on reliable and fast connectivity. Without reliable connectivity, you can’t effectively manage your assets and suppliers. Without reliable connectivity, you can’t make vital decisions or respond to unforeseen contingencies rapidly. We’re here to make all this possible.

We can make access to robust, cost-effective and reliable connectivity simple, even in the most extreme environmental conditions. Our BGAN Link and fixed Land Xpress services enable you to set up a virtual office anywhere within minutes of arriving, ensuring you stay productive from day one.
