Eagle Ford Shale operators will soon have a new local source for frac sand.
Preferred Proppants announced last week it has begun commercial operations at its Atascosa sand mine and facility. The opening of the Eagle Ford Shale facility is part of the company's strategy to move production closer to the demand.
The facility is in the heart of the Eagle Ford in Atascosa and Bexar counties and will ultimately produce 3 million tons of local sand per year. Other details include:
- Wet and dry plant and storage silos
- Automated, multi-lane, drive-in, drive-out trucking capabilities.
- Produces high quality 40/70 and 100 mesh local sand
