Speedcast International was awarded a new multi-year contract with an oil and gas engineering services customer for fully managed internet services and IT support across the company’s base in Iraq.

This company is an existing customer of Speedcast in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) that, with this new contract, is extending the scope of services that Speedcast will deliver. This new solution will supply the main base camp in Basra, Iraq with fiber internet and backup.

“This customer is a global leader in the delivery of engineering and technical services, and this contract is a great opportunity to support growth initiatives beyond the rigs,” says Speedcast’s EVP of Energy, Keith Johnson. “It’s another example of the fact that Speedcast provides solutions that go beyond standard satellite bandwidth and network management. We listen to our customers’ needs and deliver what they require, in this case, fibre and IT services for infrastructure support.”
