FORT WORTH, Texas -- Emerge Energy Services LP has announced that its subsidiary Superior Silica Sands LLC has signed a new agreement with Chesapeake Energy Corporation covering frac sand supplied from Superior's San Antonio mine in South Texas. Chesapeake will procure frac sand from Superior's in-basin mine to support its growing completions program in South Texas.

"We are very pleased to partner with one of the leading onshore exploration and production companies in the U.S.," noted Rick Shearer, CEO of the general partner of Emerge Energy. "Chesapeake is committed long-term to growing its position in the Eagle Ford basin, and as a leading producer of frac sand in South Texas, we are the perfect fit to supply Chesapeake with a large portion of its frac sand needs. Chesapeake has always been at the forefront of unconventional horizontal drilling, and we look forward to building our relationship with this new customer."

"Also, our San Antonio plant is ramping up to full capacity as our new wet plant began production in December. We are excited about the opportunity ahead of us for our San Antonio plant and our other in-basin and northern white operations in 2019."
