The Fundamentals of Frac Sand Logistics - Hi-Crush Inc

The spaces between sand grains provide permeability needed to conduct oil and gas from the formation to the wellbore so it can flow to the surface. The degree of this conductivity is determined by fracture width and permeability of the proppant matrix. Permeability is a function of size, uniformity, roundness, strength and purity of frac sand.

What is Frac Sand and How is it Used?

What is Frac Sand? Frac sand is a high-purity quartz sand with very round grains. It is very durable and provides a crush-resistant material used in the oil and gas industry for hydraulic fracturing (also called "fracking). Rock units composed of quartz grains that have gone through ple cycles of weathering and erosion are potential sources of frac sand material.
