Store frac sand properly this winter.

Proper storage of frac sand

Frac sand is a crush-resistant, round grain of quartz that is used during the hydraulic fracturing process. Demand for this product has increased a great deal as hydraulic fracturing becomes more common.

Staying strong 

Those working in the industry understand the importance of properly storing frac sand. While prices for frac sand have declined, the oil industry remains strong, reported Bloomberg Business.

“I can’t control the price of the commodity,” Brett Pennington, exploration chief, said in a recent interview. “The only thing we can do is get better and faster and cheaper. There’s a general correlation that more sand equates to a better well.”

While frac sand prices are lower, it is even more important to ensure proper storage of these materials – especially as the winter months approach. Losing materials could cost industry professionals notably, and ensuring optimal revenue while prices are low is of paramount importance.

“It is even more critical to ensure proper storage of these materials.”
