Nexen Petroleum has rolled out a WiMax network from Proxim Wireless for its oilfield operations in Yemen.

The Proxim network at Nexen's Canadian East Al-Hajr oilfield will transmit supervisory control and data acquisition (Scada) information, backhaul security and surveillance cameras, provide intranet access to field service personnel, and enable remote monitoring and maintenance, the firm said in a statement.

"We set out to accomplish some important business objectives in a remote and challenging environment," Phil Gorsuch, Scada communications project lead at Nexen Petroleum, said in a statement. "After an extensive review of several market competitors, we chose Proxim's WiMax product line because it helps us meet those objectives by offering us the best solution for Scada data backhaul, support for our field applications, and exceptional pre- and post-sales support."

Gorsuch added the firm intended to grow the Yemen network as new oil fields were discovered.
