SAN ANTONIO - Oil field services giant Halliburton Co. officially opened the doors of its $70 million local operations center that will serve clients in the Eagle Ford Shale and South Texas.

The 150-acre center at 4375 S. Loop 1604 East houses structures that total 400,000 sf, including an administration building, a 10,000-sf laboratory and a 112,000-sf truck maintenance shop.

β€œIt's probably the largest center that we have started from scratch in the U.S. β€” the largest built from the ground up,” said Paul Sheppard, vice president for Halliburton's Southeast service area.

Halliburton employs 750 at the new center and expects its local workforce will total 1,000 by year's end. The facility is designed to support 1,500 employees.

Halliburton also has major facilities in Alice and Victoria.

Halliburton joins other major oil field services companies that have opened centers in the area to service clients in the Eagle Ford Shale.

Houston-based Baker Hughes Inc. has built a facility in Southeast Bexar County at Interstate 37 and US 181, while Switzerland-based Weatherford International Inc. has an operations center at Loop 1604 South and I-37.

In addition, Schlumberger Inc., the world's largest oil field services company, last year opened its operations plant in South Bexar County on several sites on Fischer Road near the intersection of Interstate 35 South and Loop 410.
