PICAYUNE — A sand drying plant in Picayune has been sold and is currently shut down while repairs are made to a conveyor belt and the sale is finalized.

Plant general manager Paul Deville tells the Picayune Item a conveyor belt has been shut down so that workers can rebalance it and make repairs.

Deville says the plant has been bought by a privately owned company and hopes once the transition is complete, construction will resume soon. He did not identify the company.

The Alliance Consulting Group’s plant covers 30 acres and runs along the Norfolk-Southern railway from Picayune to near the Nicholson community.

The plant will produce a fine sand for the oil drilling industry.

Alliance Consulting Group is headquartered in New Orleans.
