KERMIT IN-BASIN SAND
The Kermit, TX, site, home to two mines and production facilities, provided the first in-basin frac sand in the Permian Basin. In-basin proppant can be trucked to the wellsite rather than transported by rail, significantly reducing costs and logistical complexities for our E&P and service company customers. With our full-scale facilities at Kermit, and our transload facilities at Pecos, Odessa and Big Spring, Hi-Crush can service more than 95% of all proppant consumption within the optimal 75 mile distance.
The Kermit facilities have an annual production capacity of 6 million tons of high-quality West Texas frac sand. Sourced from active eolian sand dunes of the Quaternary period, Kermit’s natural proppant is very well sorted with a high quartz content. Constant reworking by West Texas winds have left only the strongest grains.
