In February 2019, Halliburton announced that it would set up the first oilfield chemical manufacturing reaction plant in Saudi Arabia.  Once the plant is completed in 2020, the company will start the local manufacturing of specialty chemicals to enable customers to achieve production and reliability goals in the application sector from the reservoir to the refinery. Saudi Arabia has been selected as the country provides an advantageous location for the company to deliver the value proposition of superior service and expertise on chemical applications to the Eastern Hemisphere customers.
