Santrol, a Fairmount Minerals company, announced it has five Eagle Ford shale terminals to lower operatorsí proppant transportation cost. With all of these strategically located terminals, a greater proppant supply is closer to the formationís wellsites so operators can work even more efficiently.
ďWe have more terminals with more available railcar capacity than any other frac sand supplier in the region,Ē said Tom Bonno, Santrolís terminal field service manager. ďOur proppant is available at the right place at the right time.Ē
By expanding to five Eagle Ford terminals, Santrol can easily ship more than one million tons of proppant per year throughout the formation. The terminals are supplying Santrolís Northern White frac sand and high-performance, resin-coated proppants for hydraulic fracturing.
The five rail terminals are located in:
Two rail terminals, capable of handling bulk material and 4,000-lb bulk bags, serving the Eagle Ford formationís southern end with access to US 281 and State Highway 44, in addition to Interstate 37.
Rail terminal facility serving the formationís western end with access to Interstate 35.
Rail terminal facility serving the formationís eastern end with access to US 90, US 183, and State Highway 97.
San Antonio, Texas
Terminal facility serving the formationís northern end with access to Interstate 37 and Interstate 35.
All 5 terminals operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with logistical support available around the clock. Laboratory and analytical support is available at each location.
