Frac Sand Industry Leaders To Gather This Week

Professionals from companies involved with the frac sand industry will be gathering in Houston this week to discuss the state of the industry, to network, and to hear from experts regarding industry forecasts and trends. The 2016 Frac Sand Industry Update will be held Thursday, March 10 at The Houstonian Hotel in Houston, TX (

“We are very excited to have so many leaders in the industry coming together for this event,” stated event organizer Peter Cook, President of The Petroleum Connection, “Anyone involved in the frac sand industry will want to be a part of it.”

Attendees include representatives from leading frac sand providers (Unimin, Fairmount Santrol, Badger Mining, Select Sands, Southwest Sand Distributors, CARBO, Capital Sand Proppants, Chippewa Sand, SFM Frac Sand, etc.), frac sand end users (Halliburton, Oasis Petroleum, EP Energy, NOV, Shell Oil, etc.) and companies serving the industry (Solaris Oilfeld Services, CST Storage, Trinity Industries, Weld Riley, Louisville Dryer, Florida Marine, Brady Trucking, 1845 Oilfield Services, Axley Law, Robert Ober & Associates, The Mouat Company, etc.).

In an article today in the Wall Street Journal, experts predict oil prices rising by the end of 2016 and several companies have stated they will ramp production back up when oil prices hit the middle $40/barrel range. That being the case, now is the time to be in touch with potential clients. Those who wait until production has already ramped back up will miss their opportunity!
