Bringing together frac sand buyers, sellers, and service companies

The frac sand industry is adjusting to the current market as oil and gas operations stabilize across the continent. For the year ahead, how will the current environment impact the market for proppants? Will the negative impact be absorbed by a rise in the volume of frac sand being used per well? The supply chain is under pressure to adopt cost-cutting strategies and navigating through the market has become increasingly complex.

In addition to market constraints, logistics and transportation companies need to find practical solutions for responding to a low-price regime. The existing US and Canadian transportation networks need to focus on efficiencies in order to economically serve a market looking to cut costs. 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 and overall shortages in storage capacity; furthermore, adverse weather related events only exacerbate the situation due to the lack of sufficient in-play storage facilities.

The objective of the North American Frac Sand 2022 conference will be to 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.

This exhibition and conference will provide a forum for all stakeholders from suppliers and proppant manufacturers to railroad operators, well servicing companies, and E&Ps, to network and build cross-market relationships and to discuss the latest developments in the proppant market and logistics infrastructure across North America. Our agenda will include:

  • Frac sand market supply and demand forecasts
  • New rail loading, offloading, and transloading developments
  • Reducing transportation costs and understanding pricing dynamics
  • Optimizing on existing rail infrastructure, storage points, and capacity
  • Utilize local trucking and last-mile transportation strategies
  • Multiple end-user case studies and specification requirements
