Sydney, Dec 2, 2016 AEST (ABN Newswire) - SpeedCast International Limited (ASX:SDA), a leading global satellite communications and network service provider, today announced that it has been awarded a three-year contract to provide a fully managed VSAT network service for INEOS platforms in the Clipper South and Breagh gas fields in the North Sea, United Kingdom.

We regard uninterrupted offshore communication as vital to the safe and efficient operation of our assets in the Southern North Sea. The high reliability of the SpeedCast system was the key factor in our decision making".

SpeedCast has demonstrated its ability to deliver customer satisfaction in a particularly challenging environment and this reaffirms INEOS's confidence in our ability to provide a reliable service with demonstrated SLA's."

"SpeedCast's partnership approach creates significant value for INEOS, as we deliver an 'end-to-end' service, managing and controlling all aspects of the network, which enables us to react quickly to new requirements and provide service to new sites seamlessly.
