The Oilfield Technology Group of Hexion has completed the expansion of its resin coated proppant manufacturing plant in Canada. The proppants are produced to service companies and operators in the oil and gas industry.

Houston/USA — The proppant plant located in Sturgeon County, north of Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada has increased its capacity and logistics capability to service the Canadian market.

Working with their primary rail service provider, CN Rail, the manufacturer has expanded and redesigned the Sturgeon plant’s rail yard to accommodate over 100 rail cars. According to the company, the expansion, along with the production capacity enhancements, will significantly improve logistics and allow for quicker response to market demand. Customers in the West Canadian Sedimentary Basin are supplied by direct shipments from the plant or through a transloading network.
