As demand for frac sand in Canada skyrockets, Canadian Well Service Companies, E&Ps, Frac Sand Producers & Railroad Operators...

...will meet for the first time to find solutions for establishing rail, storage and transloading infrastructure for frac sand supply in Canada and quantifying the volumes & types of frac sand required in key Canadian plays such as the Duvernay, Montney, Bakken and Horn River. 

Speakers at the event will share brand new information on:

  • FRAC SAND DEMAND FORECASTS IN CANADA : Projecting the volumes, locations and specifications in terms of size, k-value & sphericity of frac sand on a play-by-play basis in the key Canadian formations including the Duvernay, Montney and Horn River.
  • RAIL INFRASTRUCTURE LOCATIONS AND CAPACITY: Detailing the timing, locations and capacity of rail infrastructure build out across Alberta and British Columbia and addressing factors affecting rail car availability to reduce bottlenecks and embargoes.
  • TRANSLOADING LOCATIONS AND OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCIES: Examining transloading locations in relation to the hottest Canadian Shale Plays and illuminating transload operational efficiencies to maximize profit margins across the frac sand supply chain.
  • FRAC SAND STORAGE LOCATIONS AND CAPACITY: Examining optimal locations and capacity requirements for frac sand storage in Canada to provide seamless supplies of frac sand to the well site.
  • FRAC SAND SUPPLY AND PRICING FORECAST: Determining opportunities for domestic Canadian frac sand suppliers amidst competition from U.S. Northern White sand and evaluating the strategies of U.S. sand producers for entering the Canadian market.
  • REDUCING TRANSPORTATION COSTS AND RETAINING FRAC SAND QUALITY: Understanding how to monitor and minimize logistical transportation costs and retain frac sand integrity across the supply chain to prevent profit margins being eroded.
  • TRUCKING DIRECTLY TO WELL SITE: Weighing up end user preference on pneumatic trucks versus supersacks and evaluating options to truck sand directly to wellsite to reduce cost and ease logistical challenges.
