Strategic Deal Cements Long Term Relationship, Allows Oil Field Network to Double in Size
TORONTO, Sept. 25, 2013 /CNW/ - Redline Communications (www.rdlcom.com Group Inc. TSX: RDL), a leading provider of broadband wireless solutions for machine-to-machine (M2M) communications is pleased to announce that one of Redline's first multi-million dollar oil and gas customers has awarded Redline a Managed Services contract for their network expansion needs for the next five years.
Since 2011, when this operator first selected Redline as their provider of choice for a secure wireless broadband network for their oil field, their network has grown substantially, creating a requirement to more effectively manage the network and its future growth.
Under the terms of this contract, Redline's professional services team will be managing the network and its growth, including network design, network roll-out, and the day-to-day support services to ensure it operates at peak efficiency. Redline will also commission new links to additional wells and integrate other applications and services into the Redline network.
"One of our key goals is to develop customer relationships where we can add long term value - not just with infrastructure but with services and applications to ensure that our networks adapt to changing customer needs," said Rob Williams, Redline's interim CEO. "Our ongoing relationship with this particular customer is a perfect example of how we partner, adding more value over time with our Managed Services offerings."
Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) is a critical component of this customer's oil field operation. It relies heavily on real time remote monitoring and management of thousands of sensors located at wells and pumping stations spread across thousands of square kilometers of desert. Redline's ruggedized, secure wireless network is the backbone of this system, allowing data to flow between the oil field and the operations center and corporate offices. Redline Managed Services will ensure that the network operates non-stop and in the most efficient way possible to deliver the communications that operators need as their oil field operation changes and grows. Redline's Managed Services free oil and gas operators from the day-to-day tasks associated with running a network, allowing them to concentrate on their business - efficient oil extraction.
