Halliburton officially opened its Elmendorf South Texas Sand Plant with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. It is the largest Halliburton sand facility in the world and represents a $35.7 million investment.
The facility, with eight silos and a laboratory, is located at the Alamo Junction Rail Park in Elmendorf, about seven miles from the company’s South Texas Operations Center in southern Bexar County. It has the capability to offload 150 railcars and load 450-500 trucks daily.
“This is good for our customers, and gives Halliburton a competitive, long-term advantage in this South Texas market,” said Paul Sheppard, vice president, Halliburton Southeast Area.
Participating in the event were representatives from Halliburton, the city of Elmendorf and Alamo Junction Rail Park companies.
