Tampnet strengthens its presence in the Gulf of Mexico with communication services contract

(Houston May 12th, 2020) After three years of cooperation, one of Tampnet’s deepwater clients in the GoM has chosen the company to deliver carrier grade connectivity services to four additional fixed production assets and one FPSO. The contract also covers a renewal on three existing fixed producing assets.

The client, who wishes to remain unnamed, highlights  Tampnet’s investments, game changing technology and build-out to their growing GoM portfolio as the reasons for the contract extension, as well as the high quality of service received to date.

We are extremely proud that one of the largest oil and gas producers in the Gulf of Mexico has chosen us to be their sole supplier of telecommunications. This contract extension is further evidence of our market leading position across multiple geographies in servicing offshore assets.  

Trygve Hagevik, Tampnet CCO.

With this agreement, Tampnet will provide high-speed, low-latency connectivity services to a total of seven production assets and one FPSO in GoM. At present there are a total of three FPSOs in operation in GoM and Tampnet is providing LTE connectivity to all of them. In addition, Tampnet will connect services to the client’s  drilling and marine operations for contracted drilling rigs and vessels. Tampnet will also offer additional mobility services made available by its LTE network, such as mobile worker solutions and Narroband IoT for sensors and other digitalization initiatives.
