The village is located in the area of oil deposits of Heglig. During the Second Sudanese Civil War, Biem was affected, not least because of its proximity to the border with the northern Sudan but because of its oil fields. This resulted in hunger among the local population and disease. Biem was under the control of the Sudan People's Liberation Army and became a haven for them.
