Sand silos in Sweetwater

The sand silos shown are part of Santrol (Division of Fairmont Minerals). The sand will be used in the fracking process of horizontal drilling. These three silos, when completed, will hold approximately 26 million pounds of frack sand (equivalent to approximately 130 Railcar loads or 520 semi loads). Santrol is locating in the new BNSF Sweetwater Logistic Center behind the Sweetwater Country Club golf course.
