OTG Starts Up New Production Line at Tx. Facility
The Oilfield Technology Group (OTG) of Momentive Specialty Chemicals Inc., announced the startup of a new manufacturing production line at its Brady, Texas, facility to provide additional resin coated proppants to fracturing service companies and operators in the oil & gas industry.
"Industry demand continues to grow as more operators come to realize the correlation between curable resin coated proppants and enhanced post-frac well production. This expansion of our Brady resin coating plant allows us to provide our customers with the additional resin coated proppant supply they are requesting for their hydraulic fracturing treatments," said Jerry Borges, Vice President, Oilfield Technology Group.
The Brady plant expansion is the third addition to the OTG manufacturing grid in 2011. The new production line manufactures Momentive's field-proven curable resin coated proppants such as Prime PlusTM, SiberPropTM, and SB ExcelTM which are available in large grain sizes. These products and the plant's geographic location are especially suited to serve the nearby Eagle Ford and Permian Basin oil markets.
"The value of our high strength proppants is seen from the increased well production they consistently provide. By leveraging Momentive's technology from other industries, combined with our own internal resin manufacturing facilities, we will continue to bring innovative proppant technology to our customers," Borges said.
