Houston, TX (May 19, 2015) – Twin Eagle Sand Logistics, LLC (“Twin Eagle”), a subsidiary of Twin Eagle Resource Management, LLC, is pleased to announce that it has landed its first 130 car frac sand unit train at Mission Rail in Elmendorf, Texas, which is in the heart of the Eagle Ford Shale.
The extra-long unit train is one of the largest frac sand trains ever to land in the Eagle Ford shale. The train was off-loaded into Twin Eagle’s new 60 million pound frac sand silo system, which is also one of the largest in the country. The silo system is scaled to house up to 300 railcars worth of frac sand and can load a truck in less than two minutes.
Twin Eagle is one of the largest independent frac sand terminal developers and operators in the country. Twin Eagle sand terminals are strategically located in the most prolific oil and gas basins. Locations in addition to Mission Rail include: the Laredo Terminal located in the South Eagle Ford, the Evans Terminal located near Evans, Colorado to serve the DJ Basin, and the Powder River Basin Terminal in Douglas, Wyoming. A terminal near Big Springs, Texas is also under development. Twin Eagle’s current terminals, combined, control over 900 rail car spaces with nearly 50,000 tons of storage capacity.
“Longer laterals, more stages and closer spacing of wells are increasingly common in today’s shale plays, which is why frac sand intensity per well continues its rise” said Griff Jones, Twin Eagle’s Chief Executive Officer. “We believe that world-class terminal infrastructure like what we have developed at Mission Rail is necessary to reduce logistics costs of completing wells and improving our customers’ breakeven costs of completion.”
