Al-Khafji Joint Operations Selects OTN Systems to Run its Operations
OTN Systems designs, develops and markets dedicated communication networks for oil and gas installations worldwide. Its fibre optic open transport network (OTN) offers oil and gas companies a modular network that is easy to install and maintain, and hence decreases operational costs.
Al-Khafji Joint Operations (KJO) from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia relies on the OTN system to support its oil and gas activities in the offshore area of the partitioned neutral zone (PNZ) between Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. KJO is committed to producing high-quality oil and gas products using the most modern techniques available and has set itself the aim of becoming a model oil and gas operation in the Gulf region.
The existing OTN-X3M-622 (622 Mbps) network offers KJO unrivalled safety and reliability. This network will be extended with an OTN-X3M-10G (10 Gbps) and OTN-X3M-2500 (2.5 Gbps) ring and an OTN-155 (155 Mbsp) network as a microwave backup link.
Today, KJO stands at the threshold of a new era of modernisation and development that will contribute greatly to meeting the energy needs of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the State of Kuwait and the world at large.
