Harris CapRock to Provide SATCOM Services to Nabor Rigs in Iraq - top government contractors - best government contracting eventHarris CapRock Communications announced that it has signed a two-year contract with Nabors Industries to provide satellite communications to land rigs and an office base in Iraq.

With the agreement, Harris CapRock will use its Very Small Aperture Terminal services to enable Nabor’s personnel completing land drilling in remote areas of Iraq to connect with the base office as well as corporate headquarters.

Specific services Harris CapRock will provide under the agreement include data transmission, Internet connectivity and ongoing service and support at various sites in Iraq.

Communication traffic from Iraq locations back to Nabors corporate office in Houston, Texas will be managed by Harris CapRock teleports in Houston, and Aberdeen, Scotland.

Harris CapRock and Nabor have worked together in the past. Harris CapRock currently provides Nabor similar services in one base office and two land rigs in Papua New Guinea, one offshore rig in Gabon and one offshore platform rig in Southeast Asia.

“We have worked with Nabors since 2004 on short-term drilling opportunities,” said Tom Eaton, president, Harris CapRock. “With our expanded portfolio and added focus on services to specifically meet the needs of land drilling clients, we are proud to support Nabors’ growing operations in Iraq and elsewhere around the world.”

The two previously signed an agreement in 2010 calling for Harris CapRock’s VSAT services to be provided in more than 378 land drilling rigs in North America. The company cites success on this project as reason for expansion of its relationship with Nabor.
