Texas-based Black Mountain Sand delivers superior in-basin frac sand solutions to companies in the Exploration & Production (E&P) industry. As domestic energy production continues to surge, frac sand demand is expected to climb accordingly, increasing to 115 tons in 2019, up from 82 million tons in 2017. With annual production capacity quickly nearing 19 million tons, and soon to serve three distinct hydrocarbon-producing regions, Black Mountain Sand is THE premier in-basin sand supplier in the nation. Our two flagship facilities, Vest and El Dorado, boast a combined 12 million annual tons of nameplate capacity in the Permian Basin alone.
Black Mountain is now expanding its Permian operations along with opening two new facilities in the Eagle Ford Shale and one in Oklahoma’s Mid-Continent region. By yearend 2018, Black Mountain Sand’s combined annual production capacity is set to equal roughly 17 percent of total estimated frac sand demand in 2019.
In partnership with Natural Gas Partners (NGP), we are focused on developing mining facilities that are not only best in class, but good neighbors too. Notable investments include:
- Research funding and dedicated conservation easement to help protect Dune Sagebrush Lizard habitat
- A water recycling system that reclaims and reuses up to 98% of the water used in our mining process
- Public road improvements to help mitigate traffic congestion at our mine entrances and improve safety
Black Mountain Sand takes great pride in delivering unmatched service to our customers. Our business thrives when we help our customers be successful.
