12th Annual Frac Sand

Supply & Logistics


The resurgence and evolution of the frac sand industry continues to uncover challenges and opportunities throughout the supply chain. What are the latest trends in logistics, storage, and mining? Are in-basin mines going to continue to pick up market share? Will sand supply constraints continue? Are mobile mines going to make a big impact? What is the outlook for trucking?

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