Hi-Crush Partners LP announced that it commenced operations at its new Pecos, Texas terminal, the first unit-train-capable terminal with silo storage in the Permian Basin. Sand is now being delivered via rail to the Pecos terminal, which boasts 20,000 tons of vertical silo storage on-site, from two of its Union Pacific connected Northern White facilities in Wisconsin. On October 3, 2017, the company began loading customer trucks.
“We are excited to complete construction on schedule and start operations at our third Permian Basin terminal,” says Robert E. Rasmus, Chief Executive Officer of Hi-Crush, in a press release. “The completion of the Pecos facility augments our existing capabilities, which include our Odessa and Big Spring terminals in the Midland Basin, and extends our advantage in the region. The addition of Pecos complements our leading network of owned and operated logistics assets, which, in addition to our recently completed in-basin Kermit facility, provides our customers with flexibility and diversity across sand product and enhances surety of supply by mitigating potential logistical bottlenecks in these highly active areas.”
