The North American Frac Sand Conference 2019
The new oil price regime has left the North American frac sand industry in the unknown as shale gas and tight oil operations have stabilized across the continent. The overall market supply and logistical challenges are leading to market tightness and price volatilities, which are further aggravated by the added pressures on existing railroad facilities from developing crude-by-rail and from the overall shortages in storage capacity; furthermore, any adverse weather related events will only exacerbate the situation due to a lack of sufficient in-play storage facilities.
In addition to market constraints, logistics and transportation companies, together with rail and transloading facilities need to find practical solutions for responding to a low price regime. The North American Frac Sand Conference 2019 will bring the frac sand supply chain industry together to evaluate solutions for overcoming the current market and logistical challenges of supplying frac sand to well sites.
