Univar opens new oil & gas facility in North Dakota

Univar Inc.

Univar Inc., a global chemical distributor of industrial and specialty chemicals and related chemistry services, has opened a new, permanent facility in Dickinson, North Dakota, to support its oil and gas business in the Williston Basin.

Univar's new five-acre facility features two warehouses, one 15,000-square-foot facility for general storage, and a second 3,000-square-foot warehouse rated for indoor flammable storage. The facility also includes a truck base and a tank farm. This is Univar's second facility in the Williston Basin. The first, in Williston, was opened in 2011 to serve the north side of the basin.

The Bakken shale formation is characterized by remote wellsites and harsh environments, creating serious infrastructure and delivery challenges for the standard chemical distribution model. Univar has already addressed a number of these challenges with transload and mobile ISO tank offerings. The permanent facility increases Univar's footprint and capabilities in the region enabling the company to deliver essential chemistries to wellsites on time.
