Bringing together frac-sand buyers, sellers and service companies

The currentoil price regime has left the Canadian frac sand industry in the unknown as shale gas and tight oil operations have stabilized across the continent. For the year ahead, how will the ongoing economic climate impact the market for proppants? The supply chain is under pressure to adopt cost-cutting strategies and navigating through the market has become increasingly complex.

In addition to market constraints, the logistics and delivery of frac sand to Canadian shale plays such as the Duvernay, Montney, Bakken and Horn River continue to be a challenging issue. Canadian transportation currently lacks the sustainable rail infrastructure, storage points, and transloading facilities required to support the ever-increasing demand for frac sand.Leading transportation companies together with rail and transloading facilities need to find practical solutions for responding to a low-price regime. The existing US and Canadian transportation networks need to focus on efficiencies in order to economically serve a market actively looking to cut costs.

The overall market supply and logistical challenges are leading to market tightness and price volatilities, which are further aggravated by the added pressures on existing railroad facilities and from the overall shortages in storage capacity; furthermore, any adverse weather related events will only exacerbate the situation due to a lack of sufficient in-play storage facilities.

The objective of Canadian Frac Sand 2017 Exhibition and Conference will be to bring the North American frac sand supply chain industry together to evaluate solutions for overcoming the market and logistical challenges of supplying frac sand to Canadian wellsite’s, and for the E&P industry to provide clarity on the volumes and types of frac sand that will be required for the Canadian plays.

This conference will provide a forum for stakeholders at every stage of the supply chain from suppliers and proppant manufacturers, to railroad operators, well servicing companies and E&Ps, to network and build cross-market relationships and to discuss the latest developments in the proppant market and logistics infrastructure across North America.

Key topics on this year’s agenda include:

  • Frac sand market supply and demand forecasts
  • New rail loading, offloading, and transloading developments
  • Reducing transportation costs and pricing dynamics
  • Optimising on existing rail infrastructure, storage points, and capacity
  • Trucking and last-mile transportation strategies
  • End users case studies and proppant quality requirements
