SpeedCast Ltd. announces Saxon Energy Services as the first major customer for its Perth Hub supporting the Oil & Gas Exploration Market



Sydney, Australia, April 16th, 2012 – SpeedCast, Asia’s leading satellite telecommunications service provider, today announced Saxon Energy Services as the first major customer for its newly launched, next-generation DVB-S2 satellite service operating out of Perth, Australia. SpeedCast partnered with SatComms Australia, an Australia-based provider of mobile and fixed satellite solutions and teleport operator, to deliver the next generation service, specifically targeting the strong demand for Oil & Gas Exploration. SpeedCast and SatComms will support Saxon Energy Services’ communications needs for two major projects in Australia.



Saxon Energy Services is a rapidly growing international oilfield services company that operates a contract drilling and well servicing business for oil and gas exploration and production companies throughout the world. Saxon required satellite communications support for two gas exploration projects in the eastern and southern regions of Australia for both drilling rig and accommodation camp infrastructures.


Saxon selected SpeedCast and SatComms Australia based on the depth of their experience in the Asia Pacific region and based on the strength of their international support network. SpeedCast has provided mission critical communication solutions in Asia Pacific for over 10 years, and has recently established the new service offering in Australia, catering to the Oil & Gas and Mining Industries.


SpeedCast partnered with SatComms Australia to meet the needs of Saxon, based on SatComm’s significant presence throughout Australia and their ability to deliver high-quality local support. SatComms has extensive experience in Australasia, servicing a diverse group of customers ranging from Maritime, to Military, to Oil & Gas Exploration.



SpeedCast and SatComms Australia will deliver the satellite communications for the two Saxon gas exploration projects, which involves connecting multiple sites throughout eastern and southern Australia, in order to enable critical communications between the remotes sites and Saxon’s regional headquarters in Adelaide, Australia, and global headquarters in Calgary, Canada.



“We have been very pleased with the solution from SpeedCast and SatComms,” said Brad Krol, Manager of Global IT Infrastructure and Operations, Saxon Energy Services.



“We needed a solid partner in the region to meet our communication requirements and their team delivered.”



“SpeedCast is thrilled to be supporting Saxon Energy Services in Australia in partnership with SatComms Australia,” said Pierre-Jean Beylier, CEO  

SpeedCast. “This first investment in Australia is an important milestone for SpeedCast and serving a prestigious customer like Saxon confirms our strategy and will lead to our further investment in this market. SpeedCast is committed to supporting our customers wherever they operate, and grow our network as their demand grows.”



“SatComms and SpeedCast have a long history working together to deliver high-quality solutions to our customers. The combination of our team on the ground and physical Australian infrastructure, backed by the strength of SpeedCast’s network is a winning combination,” said Piers Cunningham, Commercial Director, SatComms Australia. “We are delighted to support Saxon Energy Services and to contribute to the success of their projects in Australia.”



Saxon will leverage SpeedCast’s next generation DVB-S2 satellite service, which provides greater flexibility, scalability, and redundancy for customers, as well as allowing them the option to deploy point-to-point networks locally in the region. The new service is part of SpeedCast’s overall strategy to invest in regions and infrastructure to support the natural resource industry.
