You're Invited to Join Rock Products' Frac Sand Insider™ Initiative


Sand-copyRock Products' new Frac Sand Initiative will give you an insider's view of the latest development concerning Frac Sand production.

The U.S. market for Frac Sand is in the midst of a major economic boom with significant growth continuing for the foreseeable future. The International Energy Agency predicts that more than a half-million new wells will be drilled in the United States by 2035, creating the need for a steady stream of high-quality Frac Sand. According to  PropTester Inc. and KELRIK, LLC from its 2011 Proppant Market Report, as reported in the Wall Street Journal, production jumped to 28.7 million metric tons in 2011, a number that many experts think is woefully underestimated—and the expanded business opportunities for companies in the industry are tremendous.

Producers of Frac Sand, including aggregates operations, industrial and specialty sand plants, and mobile materials producers now face a critical need for market information and technology solutions. Mining Media International and Rock Products are uniquely positioned to meet the need for market insight and guidance in North America.

Rock Products will be significantly increasing coverage of the Frac Sand market both in our magazine and on this website. We will be producing a Frac Sand webinar to bring a unique insight on the industry to producers looking to capitalize on these new opportunities. Our Frac Sand e-newsletter, Frac Sand Insider™, has launched and features equipment and technology specific information for Frac Sand professionals.

Also, you are invited to join the LinkedIn Rock Products Frac Sand Equipment & Technology Forum today.
