solution designed specifically to meet the needs of land drilling operations, meets customers’ requirements for quick VSAT orders, installations and rig moves by leveraging in-region field technicians. Te service also enables predictable budgeting


through flat-rate service plans and unlimited, contiguous US long distance.


Land drilling market Since the launch of the solution in 2010, the company has identified significant needs of the land drilling market, including local manpower, readily available inventory and quick access to critical spares. It is to address these needs and better serve its clients that Harris CapRock has established two service centres in the most prominent land drilling areas in Texas - Odessa and San Antonio. Te service centres will provide value and benefit for customers through quick installations and response times to service calls, rapid deployment of turnkey solutions upon order, expedited service restoration and reduced downtime. “Te west Texas Permian Basin and south Texas


Eagle Ford regions represent strong areas of growth and opportunity for our land drilling clients,” said Rohit Chhabra, Harris CapRock business development, land drilling. Just in the last few years


alone, the land rig count in west and south Texas has significantly increased. “Having a stronger local presence in these key


regions gives our clients peace of mind knowing that we are ready to support them with whatever they need - whether it be critical equipment spares, quick service deployment or local manpower.”


Critical spares Capabilities of the service centres include local inventory of critical spares and the ability to restore service in a more timely manner, with the assistance of local field technicians. In many cases, service restoration can be accomplished remotely by Harris CapRock’s network operations centre (NOC), further minimising downtime.


“Te establishment of the new service centres


serves as a natural extension of the FieldAccess solution and the land drilling operations it supports,” said Tom Eaton, Harris CapRock president. “It is also a testament to Harris CapRock’s commitment to increasing service capabilities to the industry as it continues to experience substantial growth.”


While Odessa and San Antonio are the first two


service centres to launch, the company expects to open others as needed to meet the demands and growth of the industry. ●
