Proppant arrives by the ton in Columbiana County, Ohio

Texas-based proppant materials producer Santrol – whose parent company, Fairmont Minerals, is based in Chardon, Ohio – is shipping tons of proppant to the Buckeye Transfer Realty property in Columbiana County, The Business Journal reports. Shipments are arriving by train, with each rail car carrying approximately 100 tons of proppant.  The materials are then loaded into tanker trucks and hauled to Santrol’s customers throughout the Utica and Marcellus shale plays, the article said. It is expected that at least 15,000 tons of proppant will soon move from Santrol to these customers through the Buckeye Transfer Realty each month. For more, read the full story.
