ABS delivering high-quality satellite connectivity to oil and gas operations in Myanmar

ABS, a global satellite operator, has announced it has secured a multi-year, multi-link contract with Seanet Technologies Myanmar Co. Ltd, a VSAT service provider to expand its oil and gas communications services. The deal will deliver satellite connectivity to the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea around Myanmar via ABS-2.

ABS offers a high-performance VSAT solution catered specifically to the demanding broadband needs of the oil & gas industry. ABS-2 is capable of supporting critical services and streamline operations, providing multiple offshore platforms with access to real-time monitoring. It can also improve crew welfare, safety and healthcare conditions. In a single satellite link, separate virtual channels can be configured for corporate and crew connectivity.

SEANET is one of the leading VSAT service providers in Myanmar providing services to many sectors including telcos, oil & gas, enterprises and corporate entities. SEANET operates two premium teleports hosting an array of teleport and managed services.


“Providing connectivity with high availability is essential to the daily operations of oil and gas companies. Satellite remains the only viable offshore connectivity option. We are pleased to play an important role in linking up the oil rigs and maritime industries and support SEANET’s expansion efforts for the region,” said Jennifer Blasko, ABS EVP of Sales & Marketing. “Using our C or Ku-band capacity, ABS links up oil rigs and service vessels across key markets in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.”


“We have two established teleports, one in the heart of Yangon and the other is deployed outside the city to better serve our customers providing geographical redundancy. The oil & gas sector is one of the key drivers that we are focusing on to grow our service portfolio. We are expanding our satellite services with ABS-2 to provide better availability to our customers,” said Mr. Pyone Maung Maung, SEANET Managing Director.
