The newly formed company, Norsea Com is aimed at the growing market of very high volume data transmission, especially that generated by seismic surveying. Fiber offers significantly higher bandwidth than the existing satellite and radio links. BP Phillips and Amoco have already expressed their intent to join the project linking North Sea platforms to the new fiber-optic link between Stavanger and London. This is planned to be extended to Aberdeen in the future. Initial project cost is estimated at $38 million.
