Santrol's first Canada terminal increases customers' proppant transportation efficiency
SUGAR LAND, Texas, Sept. 27, 2013 /CNW/ - Santrol announced today the opening of the Rycroft terminal to support the Duvernay, Cardium, Montney, and Horn River shale plays. This strategically located, large-capacity terminal ensures a continuous supply of raw sand and resin-coated proppant closer to the wellhead to reduce customers' proppant transportation cost for the hydraulic fracturing of oil and gas wells in northern Alberta and British Columbia.
The terminal, which is located just south of Spirit River Highway 49 on Range Road 52 on a major railroad, is available 24 hours, 7 days a week. Customers can pick up raw sand and resin-coated proppant with short notice to complete their job requirements. This new infrastructure expands the company's distribution from a third-party transload terminal.
"As our commitment to the Canada oil and gas market strengthens, our Rycroft terminal is an important differentiator in Santrol's commitment to support our customers' work in four important northern Alberta-British Columbia shale basins," said Tom McCoy, director of Terminal Management for Fairmount Minerals. "Our strategic imperative is locating terminals closer to the wellsite for enhanced proppant delivery logistics."
Santrol, a Fairmount Minerals' company, is a leading supplier to the oil and gas industry with dependable market-leading proppants, comprehensive research and development capabilities, and one of the industry's largest distribution networks of terminals and a private railcar fleet. When combined with Fairmount Minerals' integrated network of sand mining, manufacturing, and resin-coating facilities, this united company executes on its commitment to provide the right products at the right place at the right time.
