Another oilfield equipment assembly plant planned

   GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) -- A north-central Montana economic development
company says a second oilfield equipment assembly facility is planned for the
Bynum area.
   Sarah Converse of Sweetgrass Development says Mississippi-based Yates
Constructors plans to assemble components that hold together giant pipes at an
oil sands project in Alberta, Canada.
   She tells the Great Falls Tribune that the company plans to start hiring 75 to
100 workers beginning in April.    Texas-based Lauren Engineers & Constructors
last year announced plans to build an assembly plant in Bynum to put together
equipment modules destined for the oils sands project.
   Bynum is one of the first places where large oilfield equipment can be put
together in large sections and hauled to Canada without crossing a mountain
pass or other difficult road obstacles.

Where's Bynum? Even a county would be helpful.
