Atlas Sand Co. opened its Kermit, Texas, frac sand facility, as previously announced in late 2017.

The Kermit facility’s anticipated production capacity is 4 million tpy, according to the company, and management expects the facility to reach this production rate in the third quarter.

Details of the company’s future expansion plans at Kermit will be announced at a later date.

“[This] marks a huge step for Atlas,” says Ben Brigham, founder and chairman of Atlas Sand Co. “Since the formation of the company in April of last year, we’ve been working hard towards our vision of building the best-in-class, built-to-last frac sand production facilities. With Atlas Kermit now operational, we’re very pleased to be able to reliably provide our customers with the high quality local Permian frac sand they need.”

In addition, Atlas Sand Co.’s Monahans, Texas, facility is slated to begin commercial production later this year, the company reports.
