Santrol adds proppant rail terminals to Eagle Ford shale
SUGAR LAND, Texas -- Santrol, a Fairmount Minerals company, announced today it now has five Eagle Ford shale terminals to lower operators' proppant transportation cost.
By expanding to five Eagle Ford terminals, Santrol can easily ship more than one million tons of proppant per year throughout the formation. The terminals are supplying Santrol's Northern White frac sand and high-performance, resin-coated proppants for hydraulic fracturing.
The five rail terminals are located in Alice, Texas—two rail terminals, capable of handling bulk material and 4,000-lb bulk bags, serving the Eagle Ford formation's southern end with access to US 281 and State Highway 44, in addition to Interstate 37; Gardendale, Texas—rail terminal facility serving the formation's western end with access to Interstate 35; Gonzales, Texas—rail terminal facility serving the formation's eastern end with access to US 90, US 183, and State Highway 97; and San Antonio, Texas—terminal facility serving the formation's northern end with access to Interstate 37 and Interstate 35.
All 5 terminals operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with logistical support available around the clock. Laboratory and analytical support is available at each location.
