Frac Sand Logistics & Market Forecast Summit USA 2014
Organization: American Business Conferences
|Event Date/Time: Oct 28, 2014||End Date/Time: Oct 29, 2014|
A year ago, the average unconventional well used roughly 2,500 tons of sand, whereas now wells often use double that amount, with some having as much as 8,000 tons of sand pumped into them. This, combined with the continued exponential growth in the number of wells in the US means that demand forproppant is expected to increase by 25% this year.
However, in order for frac sand producers to take advantage of this rise in demand, they will need to overcome the current logistical challenges in rail, storage and transloading infrastructure that are currently driving up their costs and preventing them from getting their product to well sites on time.
The 2nd Annual Frac Sand Logistics & Market Forecast Summit USA 2014 has been designed to bring together frac sand producers with E&Ps, well service companies and railroad operators to find practical solutions for overcoming rail, storage and transloading bottlenecks to ensure frac sand reaches well sites on time at minimum cost.
Speakers at the summit will be quantifying current levels of supply and demand for frac sand in the US before breaking down solutions at every stage of the supply chain to ensure that the demand can be met in a timely and cost-effective way.
