The Permian is poised to continue growing.



The Permian basin produces 2.9 MMbopd, approximately 45% of light-tight oil production in the U.S. More than 800 E&P operators, 25 pressure pumpers, and 30 frac sand producers are engaged in activities there. With 2,430 drilled uncompleted wells and increasing capital expenditures for E&Ps in the basin, the Permian is poised to continue growing. Dramatic changes to the supply of frac sand could lead to efficiency gains in the Permian basin
