Shale Support to expand Shale Rail partnership

Shale Support Global Holdings, a provider of frac-sand and logistics services to the oil and gas industry, has signed an extension to continue working with Shale Rail as the exclusive supply company for a Bradford County, Pennsylvania, frac sand storage facility.

In an effort to better serve the Marcellus Shale play, Shale Rail released plans to add an additional new track within its yard to provide more capacity for the Wysox, Bradford County, area, Kallanish Energy reports.

“We look forward to our continued partnership with Shale Support through 2020 and beyond,” said Thomas Coleman, vice president of Business Development. “In addition, we will be adding new track and infrastructure next year, which will increase capacity in Wysox to support completion operations by E&P’s in Northeast Pennsylvania.”

Shale Rail is a part of the Northeast Freight companies and was created to offer rail service to Pennsylvania industries with a focus on Marcellus Shale natural gas.

The Wysox location currently has the capacity to transload over 80,000 tons per month of frac sand.

Shale Support mines Delta Pearl proppant sand from its properties in Picayune, Mississippi. The frac sand is used by operators and third-party suppliers with operations in the Marcellus/Utica, Eagle Ford and Haynesville/Tuscaloosa Shale plays.
