Picture this: The 7th Frac Sand Update



Imagine your Friday with us… (Register here)


Arriving at the Petroleum Club in Houston.

Grabbing a mug of coffee and settling in as Thomas Jacob of Rystad presents on the outlook for North American shale and the frac sand market.

After that, Mike Smith of the Permian Road Safety Coalition chats with Dacia Webb of Atlas Sands and Jon Hamill of OXY about the efforts they are making to keep everyone on the road coming home alive.

Another refill of coffee and refreshments as you meet new connections and catch up with folks you may not have seen since Grapevine last September.

Now, Infill Thinking’s Joseph Triepke interviews Signal Peak Silica’s Chris Samanns, Smart Sand’s John Young, Halliburton’s Kurt Harpold, and Badger Mining’s Adam Katz about what they are experiencing in managing their sand supply and demand.

The morning has flown by, and it’s already time for lunch as you digest both the latest updates from industry leaders and your delicious meal.

The sweet treat afterwards isn’t sugary, it’s a solid interview with Liberty’s Ron Gusek and PropX’s Kevin Fisher about M&A and the benefits of the recent mergers.

Chris Hosek of the Texas Star Alliance gives you the latest legislative, regulatory, and political updates for Texan operators. Should be a very informative presentation.

Another break to have a quick snack and continue on those lunch conversations before the last stretch of the day.

The last panel is a look into the new kids in the frac sand world. IAC’s Bob Carter talks with Ryan McMaster from the Haynesville, Steve Brock of the Permian, and Todd Dollander in the Eagle Ford. These guys are building out some of the most recent frac sand mines, and we get to hear why they’re investing where they are at.

Pete gives his final takeaways from the day to close everything out.

And finally, you enjoy a cold beer with new business partners and reflect on how to make the most of the first part of 2022.
