Halliburton, the company that got its start in Oklahoma and still has a strong presence in Duncan is expanding with the acquisition of a Houston based firm specializing in water and process treatment chemicals.
Halliburton purchased Athlon Solutions and it will become part of Halliburton Multi-Chem business line which is a provider of specialty oilfield chemicals for stimulation, midstream and production customers.
It will result in a stronger chemicals technology, manufacturing and supply chain for Halliburton. And it will also give Halliburton its first chemical manufacturing plant.
“The acquisition of Athlon adds complementary technology and brings manufacturing capacity to support Multi-Chem’s current and planned growth,” said Dale Winger, vice president of Multi-Chem. “Multi-Chem is known for delivering superior customer service and custom chemistry to maximize production and ensure integrity of well and pipeline assets. We are looking forward to joining forces with an outstanding customer-focused team at Athlon that is well respected for its collaborative culture, the quality of its technical solution development, and long-term client relationships based on value creation.”
