Deon Daugherty, Senior Reporter – Houston Business Journal

Clariant Oil and Mining Services has outgrown its 28,000 square feet of space and is constructing a new building in The Woodlands that more than doubles its size to accommodate future growth.The move adds more fuel to the wave of energy-sector growth and commercial real estate activity north of Houston in the wake of Exxon Mobil Corp.’s decision to build a 385-acre complex near The Woodlands.
