Calgary, Alta., Aug. 17, 2001 — MRO product suppliers in Alberta can expect to benefit from the plans of Enerchem International Inc. to build a fractionation plant in the Slave Lake area.

The 6,000-barrel-per-day plant will be fully automated to produce a full range of Trysol-branded specialty solvent products. Enerchem subsidiary Trysol Canada Ltd. is a major hydrocarbon fluids specialist in Western Canada. The company processes and markets a wide variety of oil-based specialty solvents including Fracsol, Drillsol, Waxsol, Xysol, Unisol, along with several other solvents used as carriers for oil and gas production chemicals.

The $9-million facility is to start operating Nov. 30, 2001. The plant will be located near a stable and long-term supply of feedstock. The nearby town of Slave Lake offers the availability of a full range of service and supply companies to handle any maintenance requirements. Information on the town can be found on the Internet at www.town.slavelake.ab.ca.

The Mitsue Industrial Park, located 8 km east of the town, has numerous major industrial facilities, including Weyerhaeuser Canada Ltd., Vanderwell Contractors, Slave Lake Pulp Corporation, Zeidler Forest Industries, Chevron Canada Resources and Canadian Crude Separators.
