The Saudi Telecommunication Company (STC) has extended its relationship with Intelsat to use its satellite solutions to support operations for the largest oil & gas producer in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Under a multi-year agreement, STC will use connectivity provided by Intelsat 10-02, located at 1° west, to provide satellite services to the oil and gas sector in Saudi Arabia.

The telecom operator uses multiple satellites in Intelsat's Globalised Network to provide high-quality broadband networking for corporate customers in the banking, government and oil & gas sectors operating throughout the Middle East and Asia.  

Walid Al Wabel, general manager, operations management at STC, said: "The operations of oil and gas companies are important to Saudi Arabia and the global economy, and reliable broadband communications are a vital part of the sector's daily operations,"

"Intelsat has been a valuable partner in our support of major oil and gas clients, delivering the satellite connectivity that ensures broadband services are always available. With Intelsat's continued support, STC has the best available satellite infrastructure integrated into our network, allowing us to deliver the highest quality services to our enterprise customers regardless of location." 

Shahrokh Khanzadeh-Amiri, Intelsat's Director of Sales, Middle East and North Africa, added: "Demand for VSAT connectivity in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East remains strong, demonstrating that satellite is the best option for delivering reliable communications services to large enterprises with hundreds of locations spread across vast and sometimes remote areas.

"By selecting Intelsat again, STC validates our commitment to finding the best possible solution to support current and future requirements. This network exemplifies the enduring role that Intelsat and its customers play in connecting people and businesses in the Middle East and around the globe."
