THE WOODLANDS, Texas -- TETRA Technologies has completed an extensive renovation of its Galveston, Texas clear brine fluids (CBF) facility. The facility is now the second largest CBF blending operation servicing the Gulf of Mexico --only the TETRA deepwater facility in Fourchon, Louisiana is larger, according to the company.

The redesign of the Galveston facility resulted in a 35% increase in CBF blending capacity and an increase in overall storage capacity of more than 80%. The renovations were specifically designed to support deep and ultra deepwater projects, giving the fluids division the ability to pre-blend up to 9,000 bbl of CBFs. The company believes that the improvements will “benefit the division’s customers by providing them with the fastest turnaround in the CBF blending industry, thereby reducing reliance on contracted transportation vessels and eliminating lost rig time.”
