Published: Monday, 25 November 2019
A massive oversupply of frac sand is continuing to drive mine closures in the United States.
The largest frac sand miners in the United States are
cutting their costs and production with the oversupply of
proppants showing no sign of abating.
Frac sand prices have been under heavy pressure throughout
2019, due to a massive oversupply caused by rapid capacity
expansion in 2017 and 2018.
