RigNet And CPN Introduce New Packaged SCADA Solution For Oilfield Service Companies

Stocks in this article: RNET

HOUSTON, April 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RigNet, Inc. (Nasdaq:RNET), a leading global provider of managed communications solutions to the oil and gas industry and CPN Satellite Services announced today the introduction of a new packaged SCADA solution for use by oilfield service (OFS) companies. The package combines a Hughes 9502 BGAN M2M terminal with a custom enclosure system from CPN to offer OFS companies an efficient and reliable SCADA solution for monitoring electrical submersible pumps (ESP). 

"Packaging equipment from Hughes and CPN along with high availability L-band services into one fully managed solution, RigNet brings a solution to the artificial lift market that significantly improves operational performance for our customers," said Morten Hagland Hansen, SVP of Business Services & CTO of RigNet. "We are excited to be expanding the presence of our managed solutions along with CPN and Hughes in this critical global market."

The CPN enclosure is a custom environmental enclosure system used to house the Hughes 9502 terminal and additional ancillary SCADA equipment.  The combination allows RigNet to bring the packaged SCADA solution directly to the oilfield safely and reliably. The Hughes 9502 is C1D2 certified for use in oilfield environments and is coupled with the CPN enclosure, which has been tested by the German safety organization TÜV Rheinland.

Variable speed drives (VSD) are designed to provide reliable power, protection and control of ESP installations with the added benefit of reducing overall operating costs, increasing total efficiency and maintaining system integrity. Combining the right VSD with expert electrical and pump system design, field operation and monitoring throughout the life cycle of the well, OFS companies enhance oilfield profitability by ensuring that wells produce longer and with higher ESP system uptime and reliability. The RigNet SCADA solution monitors, controls and diagnoses ESP systems to minimize costly downtime, reduce potential energy fines and levies, reduce workovers and replacements, prolong pump run life and increase production.
