Eagle Ford’s Southton Rail Yard luring Binder Science LLC and expanding

San Antonio’s Southton Rail Yard, which opened six months ago to serve the Eagle Ford Shale, is already undergoing its first expansion and preparing to sign a new tenant.The 300-acre rail transloading operation, located at Loop 410 South and Interstate 37, is adding 6,000 feet of rail to its existing 25,000. It’s also installing six new storage silos to supply sand energy-industry customers use during the hydraulic fracturing process that unleashes oil and gas from the shale.Additionally, the site is nearing a deal for Woodlands-based Binder Science LLC to build a 10,000-square-foot chemical-production lab at the site. Binder, which supplies drilling fluids and other chemicals for the oil industry, would employ 20 or more people formulating products and shipping them to basins across the country.
