KATY, Texas Newpark Drilling Fluids has opened its new world headquarters and laboratory facility in Katy, Texas.

The facility is located on 11 acres along Houston’s I-10 energy corridor just off Mason Road. The 37,000-sq ft (3,437-sq m) research and development laboratory features the company’s state-of-the-art downhole drilling simulator and a full range of analytical capabilities.

President Bruce Smith said: “We broke ground on this project in March 2012. It is exciting to see all the planning that went into the design and construction of the complex come to fruition. The new facility places our industry-leading fluids laboratory and technical staff in the same location as our management, administrative, engineering, operations, sales and marketing groups.”
