Oil & Gas Monitoring: Track, monitor and control fleets, equipment and SCADA systems anywhere in Africa

Cost-effective, real-time coverage for vehicles and African oil & gas infrastructure

For the African Oil & Gas industry, whether you’re responsible for tracking workers and service vehicles or monitoring the performance of remote equipment, you require the kind of reliable, always-on connectivity not available with cellular coverage alone.

ORBCOMM satellite and satellite-cellular communication devices and connectivity solutions are equipped to handle even the toughest demands of non-stop real-time security, safety, and remote tracking and control in Africa’s most extreme locations.

  • Track vehicles to ensure timely delivery of goods and services
  • Help protect workers in dangerous and remote environments
  • Reduce site visits with remote equipment monitoring and control
  • Ensure continuous operation of equipment, no matter how remote
  • Receive alerts, alarms and quickly identify problems as they occur
  • Improve operations, reduce costs and increase production/profits
