SandBox Logistics signed a five-year contract with Liberty Oilfield Services to deploy its proprietary system for the transportation, site-storage and delivery of frac sand to Liberty's wellsite operations in the DJ Basin of Colorado. The company provides trans-loading, storage and last-mile delivery of frac sand through the use and application of SandBox’s patented sand-management processes and mobile ISO containers.
Through its patented sand delivery process and containerization equipment, SandBox has the ability to increase operational efficiency by eliminating many of the logistics problems and transportation bottlenecks that are common in the industry, the company said.
The system also substantially reduces silica dust and noise pollution, improving both environmental conditions and safety at frac operations. The initial deployment will be in support of Liberty’s DJ operations, with plans to expand into additional producing regions served by Liberty.
Commenting on the agreement, Josh Oren, president and CEO of SandBox Logistics, said, “We are very pleased to begin this important relationship with Liberty. The Liberty team has a clear vision to become a leader in the industry and we are delighted to be associated with a company that is so resolutely dedicated to innovation and efficiency. The collaborative effort that led to this agreement is a big win for SandBox, Liberty and the customers that they serve. SandBox looks forward to assisting Liberty in delivering the most reliable, cost-effective oilfield services that can be found in the market.”
Also commenting, Jim Brady, Liberty's vice president of operations, said, “We are really excited to be working with SandBox and believe that they offer us a truly innovative approach to better manage the growing logistics challenges associated with proppant delivery. Our customers demand better solutions and Liberty is committed to finding innovative and more cost-effective ways to do just that. SandBox is a very effective way for us to highlight our commitment to customers, as well as to create a safer and greener work environment.”
