Advanced Telecommunications Advisory and Support

Advanced Telecommunications Advisory and Support

The Cooper Basin operations of one of Australia’s leading independent oil and gas producers is about to undergo a major technological transformation with the implementation of a private 4G broadband wireless network and a new generation digital mobile radio network.  These networks will be a major enabler for a future intelligent oil and gas field that will deliver significant improvements in production and productivity, as well as Health Safety & Environment (HSE).

Nova Systems was engaged from the outset to develop the technology strategy and provide key input into the development of the supporting business case.   The technology strategy included the identification of an appropriate technology roadmap for replacing the existing narrowband radio telemetry system and analogue mobile radio systems.

Nova Systems was subsequently engaged to provide specialist technical engineering support in initiating several projects to implement both the 4G broadband wireless and digital mobile radio networks.   Specific support was provided in the development of functional specifications, preliminary design analysis and scoping, desktop RF coverage studies, obtaining necessary frequency licenses from the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA); and the subsequent procurement activities associated with selecting technology vendors to supply and implement the various technical solutions chosen.   Currently Nova Systems is providing support of test & validation activities including Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) and User Acceptance Testing (UAT).

The expertise and knowledge provided by Nova Systems has helped reduced the risks associated with such a significant technology investment and helped keep the projects on track to deliver significant future benefits.
