Monitor and Manage Energy Sector Assets with Reliable Connectivity

Keep your finger on the pulse of your midstream and upstream energy sector operations with enterprise-grade networks. Reliably connect pipeline, drilling and transport sites.


Across the energy sector, innovations from automation to artificial intelligence are driving systemic change. Yet, one thing remains constant is the need to tap into the constant stream of vital data necessary to keep your energy sector operations online. 

Looking for managed network services or digital signage solutions for your retail petroleum or C-store business? Go here for details.

In the oil and gas business, if your network goes down, so does the downstream productivity and profits. These networks are distributed across some of the harshest geographies and climates where land-based communications are often not an option. Yet, these same hard-to-reach upstream and midstream sites are the ones that require constant monitoring because they are essential to operations. Geostationary (GEO) and Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites offer an ideal solution, especially when implemented as part of a multi-transport managed broadband or Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) solution. 

Hughes can bring you high-speed connectivity no matter the application - rig, exploration, drilling, completion, production, pipeline or pump. Our technologies and services give you the tools you need to connect, proactively monitor and manage every oil & gas or energy site in your network with primary and secondary (or even tertiary) backup connections to ensure always-on monitoring. Our suite of HughesON™ Managed Services outfit oil & gas, as well as other energy sector businesses with:

Comprehensive security. The complex and ever-evolving threat landscape and steep rise in connected devices pose significant challenges for the oil and gas sector, especially when it comes to safeguarding citizens and resources. Leverage our private network capabilities and the Fortigate 30E firewall solution for the highest level of security, protection and assurance.

Reliable connections. Our multi-transport solutions provide additional layers of resiliency by layering your network with a variety of coverage options to ensure constant connectivity. We deliver advanced capabilities to handle 24x7 remote monitoring and alert system applications, backed with industry leading Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).

Availability in hard-to-reach locations with harsh or variable terrain. Our Managed Services provide proactive monitoring for your remote, unmanned pipeline and transport sites so you don’t have to worry about spending time or manpower to take readings or resolve issues. High-speed services offer single-provider connectivity across all sites, even your most remote rig, pipeline or mine.

Streamlined operations. When your operations span far-reaching sites, your network will utilize different communications providers, depending on available transport at each location. No matter how many carriers in your system, Hughes coordinates with the various vendors as your single point of contact for installation, operations, help desk support and billing.

Networks on the move for oil & gas rig communications that are easy to set up and break down in order to move operations quickly and efficiently.

Backup solutions to ensure network resilience and continuity, that are more available and affordable than cellular wireless, WiMAX or microwave.

Ruggedized terminals with built-in protection against the elements to withstand the harshest of conditions.
