UK-based mobile satellite communication provider Inmarsat announced a partnership with RLTT Digital Oilfields to provide digital solutions to oil operators in Libya. The announcement was made on February 2.

The partnership will leverage Inmarsat's IsatData Pro (IDP) and BGAN technologies to provide secure satellite-based data services to oil and gas producers. This will enable comprehensive monitoring of vital infrastructure, including wellheads at oil and gas drilling sites and production sites in oil basins. Producers will therefore be able to anticipate problems related to the deterioration of key assets on platforms, replace faulty equipment timely, and better plan maintenance work. The solution will help optimize production at the sites.

The partners plan to expand the offering to include monitoring, telemetry, tracking, and fleet management. The services will be provided by Inmarsat's ELERA L-band connectivity network, which boasts ultra-reliable 99.9% availability and small, robust terminals.

“Inmarsat’s experience in providing IoT-over-satellite connectivity for the industry means that it understands the types of products and services we want to offer to the oil and gas sector in Libya […] Operators across the country are digitalizing their operations to increase efficiency and output and improve on-site safety and security for staff. Our new partnership with Inmarsat puts RLTT in an excellent position to take full advantage of this growth opportunity,” said Taha Ellafi, Chairman at RLTT.

Commenting on the partnership, Mike Carter, President of Inmarsat Enterprise, said: “As the industry automates its infrastructure and its processes to enable remote monitoring and asset management, it reduces the need to travel to remote, potentially hazardous places. This results in benefits in terms of efficiencies, sustainability, and safety.”
