Unimin Corp. has opened its newest proppant distribution terminal in Lubbock, Texas. Strategically located between Fort Worth, Texas, and Hobbs, N.M., the facility is ideally situated to serve hydraulic fracturing operations in the North Permian basin and northern sections of the Cline shale.
Unimin’s Lubbock terminal is served by two Class 1 railroads via the Plainsman Short Line Railroad and is easily accessed by over the road vehicles via Texas State Highway 331 and U.S. Interstate 27. The facility will operate 24 hours daily, 365 days a year.
“This new footprint in the North Permian and Cline formations is an important addition to our proppant delivery network,” said David Frattaroli, senior vice president of Unimin. “The Lubbock terminal reaffirms our commitment to cost-effectively deliver superior proppants that will maximize hydrocarbon recovery in the region.”
Unimin has 30 years of terminal operations experience and actively manages proppant distribution and storage terminals throughout North America. The facility at Lubbock joins six other proppant distribution centers in Texas and Oklahoma serving the region.
