HOUSTON – Clariant’s Oil and Mining Services business has officially opened its new, state-of-the-art Eagle Ford Technology, Sales & Operations Center near San Antonio, TX. The facility is uniquely positioned to improve response time and cater to local customer needs, ensuring a long-term commitment to a strategic and growth orientated oilfield services market in North America.
Consolidating three locations into one major hub, the new technology, operations and commercial Black Hills site has more than 5,000 sq feet of office and networking space, a 3,500 sq foot laboratory and an 80,000 sq foot production area.
With state-of-the-art lab capabilities, through advanced technology, and an in-house team dedicated to local and regional customer challenges, the combined facility will enable Clariant to respond with maximum agility to analyze production issues, chemical solution development and implementation in the field, with simplified logistics, reduced lead times and fewer bottlenecks.
