Select Sands Corp. (“Select Sands” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company will start transload operations in George West, TX in Live Oak County in January of 2020.

CEO, Zig Vitols remarked, “Establishing a transload facility in the Eagle Ford is an important step to be an effective and competitive supplier to this critical basin.”
The George West transload operations has a capacity for 180 rail cars and is equipped with two offload/loading stations with dedicated silos for a high throughput capacity.
With this transload, Select Sands is fully equipped to provide operators and pressure pumpers with transload capabilities to ensure an effective flow of product in their supply chain close to their well, ultimately providing last mile cost savings.
