ITC Global Finishes Shelf Drilling’s Fleet Transition
[Via Satellite 06-18-2015] ITC Global has completed installation and commissioning of communications systems for 35 rigs in the Shelf Drilling fleet. Following an August 2014 contract award, ITC Global outfitted Shelf Drilling’s globally dispersed rigs with a fully managed communications system custom designed to support corporate and crew communications via a Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) private network solution. The transition took place over a nine-month period.

The company is headquartered in Dubai and has rig operations in 12 countries across four core operating regions: Southeast Asia, India, West Africa and Middle East, and North Africa and the Mediterranean (MENAM).
