Hi-Crush Partners LP, a leading provider of proppant and logistics solutions to the North American energy industry, has begun operations at its new Pecos terminal, Texas. This is the first unit-train capable facility with silo storage in the Southern Delaware Basin. Hi-Crush is delivering produced sand via rail to the Pecos terminal, which contains 20 000 Short t of onsite vertical silo storage on-site, from two of its Union Pacific connected Northern White facilities in Wisconsin. On 3 October 2017, Hi-Crush began loading customer trucks for delivery to support local completions activity.
“We are excited to complete construction on schedule and start operations at our third Permian Basin terminal,” said Robert E. Rasmus, CEO of Hi-Crush. The completion of the Pecos facility augments our existing capabilities, which include our Odessa and Big Spring terminals in the Midland Basin, and extends our advantage in the region. The addition of Pecos complements our leading network of owned and operated logistics assets, which in addition to our recently completed in-basin Kermit facility, provides our customers with flexibility and diversity across sand product, and enhances surety of supply by mitigating potential logistical bottlenecks in these highly active areas,” Rasmus explained.
