Mark: Hey, folks. Let’s learn something new about the oil and gas industry.

All right. We’re at OilComm 2017 and we’re sitting here with Sanjay with ITC Global.

How are you doing today, Sanjay?

Sanjay: I’m doing very good, Mark. How about you?

Mark: Very good. Now, what they don’t know is this is the third time we’ve tried to do this.

Sanjay: It is. It most certainly is, but I’m getting better every – at every take.

Mark: Yeah. And so, y’all have a new offering out there that is really cool and it’s called?

Crew LiveSanjay: Crew Live. Crew Live is a pay as you go internet service that we provide to the employees on board a drilling rig or a jackup or something that allows them to connect back home. And it’s a zero cost to the oil and gas, our direct customers.

Mark: Yeah. This Crew Live product is awesome. So, basically what happens is ITC Global come out to your platform your production facility whatever set up all the infrastructure make the connections and give your crew give your employees internet connectivity that they pay for not you which then allows them to do all the stuff that a modern young people like to do Facebook, stream movies, all that sort of stuff.

Sanjay: That’s right. We’ve had customers used Netflix, Amazon, they are doing FaceTime with their families back home. We even had one person look at his deer list out in West Texas so that he could hunting when he got back to shore.

Mark: How cool is that, by using gamecams and a internet connection you can be offshore and check out your deer lease. Only in oil and gas and only in Texas.

Now, you also do much more than that. So, besides doing that sort of that which is really cool and I think an awesome offering, literally any type of communications requirements at the oil and gas industry needs y’all probably can help?

Sanjay: We do. We are part of Panasonic Avionics corporation, so Panasonic is one of the world’s largest purchaser of commercial satellite bandwidth. So, we have a lot of bandwidth and availability, so we’re able to sell capacity to customers at a very competitive rate and we have coverage globally and sometimes multiple layers of coverage for our customers. So, we are able to provide diversity on satellites as well as teleports.

Mark: Yeah. That’s awesome. So, if people wanted to learn more about ITC Global, where they should go?
