SMi's 7th annual Oil and Gas Telecommunications conference, taking place on 19-20 March in London, will tackle the challenges the oil and gas sector faces in some of the most dangerous, harsh, and remote environments on earth requiring a range of means to communicate with and draw information from platforms and land-based sites of all kinds from across the globe. The two-day programme will feature an array of case studies delivered by senior communication professionals from ConocoPhillips, Shell, Tullow Oil, DESFA and EnQuest among others.

The challenges the oil and gas sector faces in some of the most dangerous, harsh, and remote environments on earth requires a range of means to communicate with and draw information from platforms and land-based sites of all kinds from across the world. Far removed from infrastructure, support teams and in extreme temperatures and unpredictable weather conditions, secure, scalable and, most importantly, reliable communications, are vital for the success of all involved.
