Preferred Proppants, LLC Key Developments

Preferred Sands Introduces NavPort

Preferred Sands introduced NavPort, a comprehensive database that tracks wells from completion to production. Developed to fill an industry need for reliable and complete data, NavPort links downhole completion and production information through an on-demand and flexible reporting platform. Using NavPort's visualization tool, customers are able to zoom in directly to any well in North America and track all downhole consumables, including proppant consumption and fluid usage, and link them with production. NavPort's flexible reporting platform allows industry professionals to track such trends as average proppant consumption by well, basin, and operator or well service provider. Additionally, NavPort's Proppant Efficiency Metric measures a proppant's effect on oil and gas production over a specific period of time.

Preferred Sands to Expand Northern White Sands Operations

Preferred Sands announced plans to open an additional Northern White sand plant, which will expand its Northern White frac sand production capabilities by more than four billion pounds annually. Preferred Sands currently produces more than three billion pounds of Northern White frac sand annually. The new plant, which is anticipated to open in 2015, will bring the company's total Northern White production capacity to more than seven billion pounds annually.
