Stallion Oilfield Services has been delivering its wellsite support services to some of the biggest names in the oil and gas industry across America for the past two decades. It provides everything from wellsite construction, production services, water transfer, camp complexes, equipment and solids control, and Stallion comes to SES for its Wellsite Communications.
Using SES satellite network Stallion provides mission-critical connections, including secure voice services, to hundreds of oil and gas drilling and production sites. This enables its customers to review real-time drilling data from virtually anywhere.
The bandwidth efficiencies in the network have also led to significant distribution cost savings, and these savings have been reinvested into expanding VSAT network.
“Voice and data connections are the lifeline of any oil and drilling operation when there’s nothing around for miles and miles. They are as critical as it gets,” said Pedro Buhigas, Director of Technology at Houston-based Stallion. Buhigas led the expansion of the StaRComm VSAT network to meet the growing demand for data services in some of the most remote spots on earth.
For Stallion flexibility and reliability are key. “More than capacity we value SES’ reliability, flexibility and expertise to meet our customers’ ever-changing demands,” said Buhigas. “We never know from one day to the next where we may be asked to go, and what type of communications link we may need to provide, so it’s essential for us to have a partner that we can count on to deliver what’s needed.”
