The operational efficiency of oil exploration companies largely depends upon the ability of the oilfield operator, engaged in exploration and production process, to communicate field operational data to the control center and other facilities. As per the estimates of Digital Oilfields World Summit, by 2015, the digital oilfield market would grow by 40%. The adoption of digital oilfield technology must be supported by robust and effective communication network infrastructure. Intelligent use and integration of telecommunication networks are critical factors for establishing and developing efficient and dynamic communication network infrastructure.Reliable and robust communication infrastructure in remote and harsh oilfields enables better-informed decision making between offshore and onshore operations. It creates a virtual environment where effective communication and collaboration among experts can occur, regardless of where the experts are physically located.
