Drilling is Good for Factory-built

January 29th, 2013 Comments off

The timesunion reports 40 housing modules are on their way from the Port of Albany, in New York, to St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada for housing offshore drilling workers. Manufactured by a Champion Homes plant in Sangerfield, NY, the modular homes are destined for Exxon/Mobil’s Hebron Project that seeks to recover 660 million barrels of oil. As a side note, the Port of Albany receives crude oil from the Bakken Field in western north Dakota, another bright spot for the factory-built housing industry, as MHProNews has reported numerous times.
