Badger Mining Corp. (BMC) announced a new partnership with TranSand Inc. This exclusive partnership in Fort St John will bring a significant increase in frac sand transloading capacity to the region.
“This expansion sets the stage for tremendous growth in the North Montney. Together with TranSand, we are building for the future,” said Adam Katz, executive vice president at Badger Mining. “The North Montney Shale has tremendous potential, and we are committed to the Canadian Energy Industry.”
The feeling is mutual. “The TranSand team is thrilled to expand on our already strong partnership with BMC on an expansion in FSJ,” said Norm Taves, president of Transand. “Badger is a highly respected, quality sand producer whom we have worked with for a long time, and BMC is known for supporting the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin for decades. The North Montney is an exciting growth market, and we could not be happier to enter into this exclusive arrangement with BMC.”
The benefits of this new partnership include:
- Track Expansion to transition to a unit train capable transload.
- Increased Daily Capacity to keep up with the growing requirements at wellsite.
- Exclusive partnership enabling improved efficiencies and increased throughput for our customers.
