From its headquarters in Houston, Texas, Halliburton has over 50,000 employees operating in 70 countries worldwide serving the upstream oil and gas industry throughout the lifecycle of the reservoir – from locating hydrocarbons and managing geological data, to drilling and formation evaluation, well construction, completion and production optimization. The company is constantly searching for new sources of oil and gas, and this means operating in remote regions that have under-developed communications infrastructure.
In countries such as Rwanda, Angola and other parts of East Africa, Halliburton needs to be on-site very quickly following the award of new contracts – it’s vital for each site to become operational and revenue-generating as soon as possible. Staff need full access to corporate tools even when they are working in remote and distant locations.
