I need 50 million lbs of Texas brown 100 mesh sand to frack with. Just seeing if by a long shot someone on here works in that industry. 

Also if you have any contacts or connections to bring in sand from Mexico? I don't know if they process sand like that down there but they frac in Mexico so there's a chance.

I m me if you can help otherwise just post whore in here and bump till I get some help.

Frack me..

Keep your Mexican sand in Mexico where it belongs.

My dogs track in a couple pounds of sand a day (it seems). I'd be glad to send it to you if you don't mind a little dog hair mixed in...

There's a shortage. Liberals are neckbearding it all for their panties. Gonna be a rough four years for ya I 'spect.

I might be able to help. PM very specific details, I have contacts in the Mexican industrial sector.

I would hit the sand pits in Columbus, TX to see what you can turn. I don't even know if they have the right kind of sand.

ETA: not the right kind of sand.

Here is a white paper on everything you wanted to know about frac sand but were afraid to ask. Link

I can't help you with sand but if you keep using that much that means good things for my line of work too.

Does it have to be Texas brown? We churn out about 160-170 tons per hour.

I would have thought if you needed that amount of sand you'd have a contact already? Or are they not coming through for you?
Link Posted: 2/6/2017 10:22:15 PM EDT
No but it wouldn't be too hard to find someone who can supply $50 million of Mexican Brown a month. Got a better ROI.
Link Posted: 2/6/2017 10:22:30 PM EDT
When I was in the industry we had to procure 100 mesh from Canada.

There was a shortage of ceramic also, had to get that from the Canucks too..

1. Someone buying sand in "pounds" is a bit odd. I would expect a user of such a commodity to specify in tons.

2. I would expect such a contract to come through one of the larger aggregate providers, such as Vulcan Materials or Aggregate industries vs posting on arfcom hoping someone had a big ass sand pile and a bunch of dump truck drivers sitting around jerking off (though that is what dump truck drivers excel at)


25,000 tons of sand isn't exactly an unusually large order, but 25,000 tons per month is substantial. I would think that such an order would likely open up other avenues of transport, such as rail and barge. When I worked on projects using that much sand, it would typically be accomplished over a period of 3-6 months and that was with the use of several quarries. To get that in a month would have probably required more trucking than was available.

All of the 100mesh in texas from normal supply lines is sold. I need an inside play or some genius solution to get 100 mesh sand. I will pay retail but need a secure source that can do what they say.

The fracking plans I've seen in the past usually specify lbs of sand to be mixed per gallon of fluid injected.

Bet its going to West Texas so barges are out and dump trucks in and the oil business still relies a lot on who you know or may know to get things done.

Just saw you need it in West Texas, I am sure the BNSF rail line will get it from AZ to TX.

We get it, you know nothing about the oil and gas industry. Frac sand isnt transported by dump truck for one. And pounds are not unusual to deal in with regards to frac sand. Thanks for weighing in though.

We pay by the ton. But figure wear and degradation buy pounds. I have a c pump that when it see's 60million I change out. That pump cost 30k to replace. The money we play with is pretty crazy. I have personally helped put 0ver 500 million pounds of sand downhole.
