The Digital Oilfield

Real time measurement and control is essential for efficient oil field operations. The Digital Oil Field delivers proven benefits across all aspects of oil field exploration and production, from drilling to storage and pipeline monitoring, but real time monitoring and control requires real time data communications across the entire field. Historically, this has been achieved by creating individual data links from each remote location to a central monitoring base (or bases). In difficult environments like the Iraq Oil Fields, where basic communications infrastructure is completely absent, this has often required the use of expensive communications technology such as VSAT for many critical end-points.


Cloud Technology has pioneered the development of very large scale ICT infrastructure for utility Smart Grid and ISP data access solutions in Iraq and the MENA region. From our direct experience of deploying the largest wireless networks in the world, supporting hundreds of thousands of end-points for mission critical applications like SCADA, we know we can deliver similar multi-use infrastructure across the harsh environment of the Iraq oil fields – economically and to vastly improved performance levels. Our multi-layer, multi-use infrastructures deliver military-grade security, QoS and reliability to rigorous, application-level SLAs (Mbps mobile performance, 100% coverage, 99.999% availability, for example). We use only industry-standard, proven components with unified and centralized network management applied across all infrastructure layers.

The creation of multi-application broadband infrastructure across the entire oil field enables unlimited expansion, optimizes CAPEX and minimizes OPEX. A complete range of backup services, from on-site technical support to managed service contracts is delivered by our dedicated in-country Iraqi engineering team to minimize operational risk and costs
