April 3, 2017 | Trade Arabia

Leading telecom provider Ooredoo has signed an agreement with energy industry service provider Halliburton to reinforce the company’s communications and connectivity as it extends its operations in Oman’s oil fields.

To meet the challenge of keeping Halliburton’s operatives connected and in touch 24/7, both on-site and as they move between remote locations, Ooredoo will employ its cutting-edge auto-tracking VSAT technology.

Monther Al Mamari, Business Product Management director, said: “Ooredoo takes great pride in being a total telecommunications services provider, meeting the fast-evolving needs of industry and enterprises of all sizes with innovative and bespoke solutions such as our auto-tracking VSAT technology.

“Indeed, we look forward to continuing to providing the best network experience and support their many activities and smooth running of their organisations, as we carry on diversifying and expanding our portfolio of market leading business products and services”.

Joy Antony, Halliburton regional IT manager for Eastern Gulf and Northern Gulf added: “The new technology of Ooredoo improves our business operations by providing their reliable and fully managed services on both terrestrial and VSAT connectivity.”

Ooredoo has been providing Halliburton with state-of-the-art connectivity solutions since 2010, including point-to-point and leased line links, voice PRI and customised mobile technology. And meeting the company’s growing telecommunications needs and demand for higher capacity, Ooredoo has connected Halliburton’s Adam base with a ten-kilometre fibre link from its core network.
