Fibre optics

The Tampnet infrastructure – the shortest route between Norway and the UK.


Fibre optic communications revolutionize operations offshore. High capacity broadband access enables faster and improved decisionmaking, increased efficiency and major cost savings.

Compared to traditional satellite communication, subsea fibre cables have virtually no delay. This allows for instant distribution of critical data from offshore operations, and takes video conferencing to the next level. With real-time communication, you can benefit from your core expertise while keeping them onshore, available for multiple operations. Needless to say, this is also a huge benefit in a HSE perspective.

The distance between onshore and offshore has never been shorter with Tampnet providing offshore subsea fibre in areas as the North Sea and Gulf of Mexico.

Tampnet operates the largest offshore high capacity communication network in the world and serves more than 350 Oil & Gas platforms, FPSO’s, exploration rigs and vessels, in the Gulf of Mexico, as well as on the Danish, Norwegian, Dutch and the UK sectors of the North Sea. In total, Tampnet owns and operates a redundant offshore infrastructure network based on 3,000km of subsea fibre optic cable in the North Sea, complemented with a large number of high-capacity, carrier grade radio links and an extensive 4G LTE network.
