Texas-based firm Vista Proppants and Logistics announced plans Wednesday to open a new frac sand mine near Fay, OK that will have a capacity of up to 1.5 million tn/yr that will provide products to customers operating in the Mid-Continent region’s SCOOP and STACK plays. 

The company recently acquired a 1150-acre parcel for the project and is in the process of obtaining construction permits, according to a company press release. 

“Our development of an in-basin mine in the underserved SCOOP and STACK plays is the next step in Vista’s long-term strategy to provide customers a broader-based, truly differentiated mine-to-wellhead solution for their frac sand needs,” said Greg Humphreys, the firm’s chief executive officer, in a statement. 

The new mine in Oklahoma will offer 100 mesh and 40/70 products with solid crush and other attributes to E&Ps and oilfield service companies in the area. Vista said its network of transload facilities will assist the firm in delivering the frac sand to end users. 

Vista is an in-basin provider of frac sand in several oil and gas regions in the U.S., including the Permian Basin. The company owns 12 transload terminals in Texas and Oklahoma and operates a fleet of 100 transport vehicles.
