Radios For Oil & Gas

Extreme temperatures and ambient conditions such as moisture, blowing sand and dust can wreak havoc on communication networks, creating unique challenges for ensuring reliable communication. Oil and gas are still key to our power consumption needs and with renewable energy on the rise it still accounts for a small percentage when compared.

 So, we will take a look into how communications within the sector can be improved to enable better decision-making for greater safety and productivity.

When reviewing some of the main security concerns on an oilrig, we find that some may require immediate attention and may endanger human life, the environment, or have an adverse effect on company assets and/or reputation.

• Serious Accidents/ Fatalities
• Medical Evacuation
• Man Missing
• Hydrogen Sulphide
• Severe Environment/ Weather Conditions
• Fire or Explosion
• Loss of Well Control/ Blow Out
• Failure of the Rig Structure

IP Multi-Site Connect

Connect multiple sites over an IP connection allowing for voice and data transmissions between the sites.

Thirty years ago, communications between offshore facilities and onshore locations was limited to a basic two-way radio system and daily reports. Back then, oilfield workers stationed offshore were virtually cut off from the rest of the world. With the rise of DMR and IP Linked Radio systems, Endurance Technology® can now provide a communications system that not only allows for instant reliable and resilient communications onboard an oil rig but much more…

Whilst oilrigs have worked hard to increase safety for staff there were 263 dangerous occurrences reported in 2016 alone. This represents a serious threat to staff safety as well as downtime for the rig as a whole.

Extreme temperatures and ambient conditions such as moisture, blowing sand and dust can wreak havoc on communication networks, creating unique challenges for ensuring reliable communication. Furthermore, these sites are very small, so systems must be quite compact yet still reliably handle all the traffic.

Of course, all equipment placed onto an oilrig must be ATEX Rated to ensure protection against fire and explosion.

All of these emergency situations require instantaneous communications to effectively co-ordinate staff and emergency personnel. With the advancement in IP connected systems a radio system can be fully monitored remotely, including GPS information and Man Down data, enabling operators to reduce the overhead of sending staff out to a Rig whilst also reducing risk for that member of personnel.
