Wet Sand Direct To Blender Might Be Music To Our Fracing Ears [Guest Post]

In addition to the personnel exposure benefit, the elimination of the drying process has a very real impact on energy consumption and the resulting emissions. Converting an annual operation that pumps 360,000 tons of sand dried by natural gas to a wet sand operation would reduce CO2 emissions by at an estimated 6,230 – 8,280 tons per year.

This emissions reduction is the equivalent of removing 2,040 cars off the road for a year. That’s for only one average frac operation! Convert just 10% of just the Permian market to operating with wet sand and the emissions reduction is equivalent to removing 25,000 cars from the road annually. That’s worth bragging about.
