Baker Hughes plans major South Side facility

by admin on August 25, 2011

Oilfield supplier Baker Hughes Inc. on Tuesday disclosed plans to build a $30 million operations center in Southeast Bexar County to support the booming activity in the Eagle Ford shale, eventually providing more than 400 jobs, officials said. “Baker Hughes is really excited about moving to San Antonio,” said Mark Seale, the company’s directorof real estate.

Weatherford Artificial Lift Systems Inc. plans a support operations facility with 120 new jobs and costing $17.5 million at Loop 1604 and I-37.

Clearwater International LLC plans a $19 millionchemical manufacturing operation on in the 16400 block of Old Corpus Christi Road, retaining 50 jobs.

San Antonio’s relative proximity to the Eagle Ford is drawing other oil-field service giants, including Halliburton Corp., which has purchased 150 acres in southeast Bexar County near the intersection of Loop 1604 and I-37.
