Preferred Sands confirms opening of South Texas Mine

Preferred Sands will commence commercial operations at its Atascosa sand mine and facility as part of its national strategy to reduce the cost of sand and associated logistics for clients in the region.

The facility includes a wet and dry plant and storage silos as well automated, multi-lane, drive-in, drive-out trucking capabilities. It produces high quality 40/70 and 100 mesh local sand for Eagle Ford operators and aims to produce approximately three million tons of finished goods product per year.

Michael O’Neill, founder and CEO of Preferred Sands, said: “This opening represents a significant event within our continued, multi-year localization strategy. The Atascosa facility, coupled with our second local plant opening in the near term in Monahans, Texas, will ultimately add over 6 million tons of capacity available to our customers in both the Permian Basin and Eagle Ford Shale. We’re excited to continue our record as an innovative first mover and remain committed to being the lowest CLAW (cost-landed-at-well) and highest production-enhancing partner to our customer base in all the areas in which we operate.”
