Vista Proppants logoVista Proppants & Logistics, a provider of frac sand, will develop a frac sand mine northeast of Fay, Oklahoma, to serve customers primarily operating in the region.

The facility is expected to produce 1 million to 1.5 million tpy, according to the company.

The company completed the purchase of the 1,150-acre site, located on Highway 33 in Oklahoma, and filed permit applications to begin construction upon approval.

“Our development of an in-basin mine in the underserved Scoop and Stack plays is the next step in Vista’s long-term strategy to provide customers with a broader-based, truly differentiated mine-to-wellhead solution for their frac sand needs,” says Gary Humphreys, CEO of Vista Proppants & Logistics. “We plan on producing both 100 mesh and 40/70 products with solid crush and other characteristics designed to best serve the growing need for in-basin sourced frac sand.”

In addition, Vista officially commenced operations in March of this year of its expanded West Texas facility in Winkler County, Texas, producing an initial capacity run rate of 3 million tpy. In August, Vista received its New Source Review permit, allowing for an additional production capacity of 2 million tpy, totaling production capacity for the West Texas facility at 5 million tpy.
