Issue #315 | March 17, 2021

We are only two weeks away from the 6th Annual Frac Sand Industry Update!   Don’t miss this opportunity to get back together with other frac sand professionals and hear from industry leaders.  We have some great speakers lined up (check out the agenda here: 6th Annual Frac Sand Industry Update – Petroleum Connection), ready to discuss emerging issues.  And if you are attending, do not forget to book your room in our block of rooms at the Hyatt Regency Houston (which is just across the street from The Petroleum Club).  You can book your hotel room online here.

There are still some seats available, but we’re on pace to sell out again.  Register today to make sure you are able to attend!  We’re really looking forward to getting together with everyone again. 

And now, the news…
