The upstream vertical in oil and gas industry, also called exploration & production, is mostly straight forward regarding communication solutions. This due to the prospective area search for potential reserves of oil and gas is in the most harsh environment. Exposure to sea environment in combination with sunlight, rain, fog and strong winds; the hardware must be more than suitable for this extreme exposure. Also the remote location of a platform or vessel must make the communication solution easy to maintain and control by the telecom engineers this to do possible problem solving completely without interfering the vendor onsite.

When Initial wells are drilled and "explored" with good results, a production company will enter the production phase to extract the hydrocarbons via a production platform or FPSO. Similar solutions has been addressed in the exploration phase are applicable in these sector. Next to the offshore solutions BCom-Solutions can advise you Upstream communication systems for the onshore land drill applications and unmanned production platforms
