U.S. Silica Opens New Transload Facility To Serve Utica And Marcellus Shales

U.S. Silica Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SLCA) today announced an agreement with S.H. Bell Company to open a new silica sand storage facility to support growing demand from oil and gas customers in the Utica and Marcellus Shales. U.S. Silica will ship barges and railcars of premium Northern White frac sand to the new transload facility in East Liverpool, Ohio from its network of sand plants.

“We are excited to have S.H. Bell as a strategic service provider as we further expand our supply chain reach,” said Bryan Shinn, Chief Executive Officer of U.S. Silica. “This is a prime location for a new facility and is another example of how U.S. Silica is leveraging our flexible logistics to bring high quality products closer to market. We have opened nine strategic frac sand transload facilities this year and continue to move our point of sale closer to the shale basins, providing convenience and flexibility for our customers.”

“We are looking forward to our new relationship with U.S. Silica,” said John Bell, President of S.H. Bell Company. “This is an ideal location for distributing frac sand into the Utica and Marcellus Shale areas. S.H. Bell Company will continue to be an active participant in the oil & gas industry and a strong supporter of job creation and growth of the local economy.”
