Lay-Down Yard

S-CON has purchased four acres adjacent to the back of the Bryan facilities. This additional property, already rocked similar to all other open areas of the facility, allows storage room for large pieces of equipment, especially the used processing plants and treating units routinely purchased by S-CON for refurbishment, modification and installation into new applications for S-CON’s customers.
