Frac Sand Demand – On the Rise
Demand for Frac Sand is Increasing
In the last 6 years the prices of crude oil have been low, which has decreased new drilling activity. This does not mean, however, that the use of the hydraulic fracturing process in existing wells has decreased. In fact, it has meant the exact opposite. Frac sand–a major part in the hydraulic fracturing process–has seen a large increase in demand, and therefore, sales over the last three years. While frac sand sales have slightly decreased in 2015, the industry is still expanding every day. More and more frac sand is being used per well. Estimates say that on average, about 4.2 million pounds of frac sand are being used per well. Studies have shown that the more frac sand that is used per well, the greater the wield of oil or natural gas.

AllEnergy is proud to be a part of such a strong, thriving industry like silica and frac sand production. We try our best to provide our customers with top quality silica and frac sand at competitive prices. That is why we have built our processing plant in Wisconsin, just a mile from our mine. We use a conveyor belt to transport our raw product to the plant. After it has been processed, it is loaded directly into a rail car that is adjacent to the plant. From there it is transported all across North America, including the United States and Canada.
We use conveyor belts and railroads because it lessens our carbon emissions and noise pollution. It also increases our efficiency and decreases cost. We are also able to transport year round. If we were to use a fleet of trucks, we would have delays due to weather conditions. AllEnergy tries our best to lower costs and still give you the best product possible.
