Shale Support purchases two sand mines

By |  June 27, 2018

Shale Support, a provider of frac sand and logistical solutions to the oil and gas proppant market, purchased two natural sand mines in Kinder, Louisiana and central Louisiana.

The acquisition of the two Louisiana mines expands the company’s capacity by 2 million tons to a total of 5 million tons annually.

Shale Support anticipates increasing the two mine’s capacity from 2 million to 3 million tons by the first quarter of 2019, which would increase the company’s capacity to a total of 6 million tons.

“It’s been difficult for Shale Support to find acquisition opportunities which maintain the clean, single digit turbidity product quality requirements of our organization,” says Kevin Bowen, co-founder and CEO of Shale Support. “These two mines produce a clay-free, white sand that will maintain the stringent product standards of our brand, Delta Pearl, and will be a perfect solution for the huge demand increase that we see coming from increased Austin Chalk activity.”
