Rock Products Launches Frac Sand Info Initiative


In response to unprecedented market demand, Rock Products announces the launch of a new Frac Sand Information Initiative. Rock Products' new Initiative is designed to supply its readers with an insider's view of the latest development concerning Frac Sand production.

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.

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 USGS, Frac Sand production jumped to 28.7 million metric tons in 2011, a number that many experts think is underestimated – and the expanded business opportunities for companies in the industry are tremendous.

Rock Products will address the need for Frac Sand information in four specific ways:

  • Key in this initiative is the launch of Frac Sand Insider™, a new e-newsletter featuring equipment and technology specific to Frac Sand professionals.
  • Rock Products will significantly increase coverage of the Frac Sand market both in the print edition of the magazine and on its website.
  • The publication will produce a Frac Sand webinar to bring a unique insight on the industry to producers looking to capitalize on these new opportunities.
  • Readers are also invited to join the LinkedIn “Rock Products Frac Sand Equipment & Technology Forum.”
