Nissan Chemical America Corp. expands production of well additive in Texas
PASADENA -- Nissan Chemical America Corporation (NCA) is undergoing a $1.4-million expansion of its Pasadena, Texas, production facility. The goal of this plant improvement project is to increase production capacity to meet the rising sales demand of nanoActiv products from the oil and gas industry.
nanoActiv HRT is a well additive treatment mechanically powered by highly surface-modified nanoparticles. These particles are designed to penetrate deep into the natural fracture network and persist with long efficacy to deliver increased and sustained oil and gas production.
"The capital expansion will add storage capacity for a rapidly growing business, while upgraded instrumentation and automation will serve to ensure the highest levels of quality in our products," says Robert Griffith, V.P. and general manager of the facility.
William Smith, president and CEO of NCA adds, "The expansion enhances our commitment to reliably serving customers in the Permian basin, while expanding our abilities to produce new products in the nanoActiv series."
The project, which started in November 2017, is expected to come on line during third-quarter 2018.
