ERF Wireless broadband for oil and gas operations

Extensive broadband network covers oil and gas operations in Texas, New Mexico and Louisiana.

A new division of League City, TX-based ERF Wireless has been created to address ‘growing demand’ in the oil and gas industry for the wireless products and services. The new unit is to leverage its expanding wireless broadband networks in Texas, New Mexico and Louisiana to provide specialized products and services to oil and gas customers.

ERF CEO Dean Cubley said, ‘Oil and gas is looking for a way to move from its traditional low bandwidth, high cost satellite-based connectivity to true high-speed broadband for field operations at a reasonable cost. ERF’s acquisition of wireless internet service provider networks created an extensive wireless footprint covering a large percentage of the most active oil and gas exploration, drilling and production regions in Texas, New Mexico and Louisiana.’

New unit head John Nagel added, ‘Our specialized products and services provide a communication pipeline large enough to accommodate massive exploration and production data feeds at great savings compared to satellite. Oil and gas wireless connectivity supports drilling, remote field offices, video surveillance for production facilities and pipelines and HSE monitoring. We also provide radio tower construction and tower climbing, wireless network design, remote network monitoring, and surveillance equipment installation.’
