“Anyone who has ever fracked a well knows there are a million things to consider when it comes to safety, costs and efficiencies. Our system makes their job easier."
Houston, TX (PRWEB) February 23, 2017
The oil and gas industry is always innovating and for related trades, like transportation, it is important to keep up. That is why Arrows Up, LLC., an affiliate of OmniTRAX Inc., has introduced a revolutionary method to get frac sand into the blender at the wellhead in a way that eliminates dust, saves time and cuts costs.
“Anyone who has ever fracked a well knows there are a million things to consider when it comes to safety, costs and efficiencies,” said Ken White, Director of Sales for Arrows Up, LLC. “Our system makes their job easier by providing a last-mile containerized proppant delivery solution that addresses all three of those business priorities.”
Speaking at the North American Frac Sand Exhibition & Conference, today, White will explain how their delivery solution combines unitized Jumbo Bins with a riser that allows the sand to be directly discharged into the blender at the wellhead. This flexible system offers tailored solutions that customers love because it reduces transportation costs and demurrage without compromising safety. In fact, the patent-pending containers are proven to substantially reduce silica dust, which is heavily regulated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
The Arrows Up Jumbo Bin can hold 25 tons of frac sand and decrease product shrinkage by reducing the number of times the product needs to be transferred. It can also be moved by standard transportation equipment, giving customers the flexibility they need to control costs.
White’s presentation is entitled: “Creating Supply Chain Efficiencies Through Unitized Solutions for Last-Mile Delivery.”
