U.S. Silica Strikes Deal With Chesapeake for SandBox Services


U.S. Silica Holdings Inc. announced that SandBox Logistics, its last-mile containerized solution, has been awarded a full-service agreement for multiple crews with Chesapeake Energy, starting this month.

SandBox will provide equipment, trucking, wellsite labor and its more than 5,000-ton mobile transload capabilities for Chesapeake's operations in south Texas. Specific terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Commenting on the transaction, SandBox President Daniel Miers said, "We're excited about this strategic partnership with Chesapeake. We know that the Eagle Ford is Chesapeake's largest and most critical region, so implementing SandBox's state-of-the-art, full-service model for their crews makes perfect sense. We look forward to working with Chesapeake in 2019 and beyond to make their proppant logistics operations cleaner, safer and more efficient."

SandBox ended 2018 with approximately 90 crews deployed and expects to have a significant number of new crew starts during 2019.
