10th Annual Frac Sand Supply & Logistics Conference

September 15-17, 2021 | Gaylord Texan, Grapevine, TX

The evolution of the frac sand industry continues to uncover challenges and opportunities throughout the supply chain. How has the Permian’s in-basin sand play impacted the industry and the supply chain? Will there be consolidation in the industry? Are international opportunities opening up? What are the latest trends in logistics, storage, and mining?

Building on the success of previous events, conference is organized to help bring together the sand suppliers, E&P companies, well servicers, rail companies, truckers, barges, terminal developers, storage providers, equipment suppliers, capital markets, and those who provide technology solutions to help develop a more efficient supply chain.

At this event we will again include Pre-Conference Seminars and roundtable discussions on topics of interest to add to our superb lineup of speakers. In addition to the educational opportunity, you will be able to take advantage of numerous networking opportunities, and the golf outing as we visit a new host venue.
