HOUSTON, April 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Petroleum Connection has announced that Portare Services will be the exclusive Platinum Sponsor at the 3rd Annual Frac Sand Supply & Logistics Conference, being held at the JW Marriott Hill Country Resort in San Antonio, Texas on August 21 & 22, 2014.
"Portare's PASSBOX (Portable Aggregate Supply System) brings huge efficiencies to the market by removing losses and degradation due to transloading and ensuring readiness of the product at the well," explained Peter Cook, President of The Petroleum Connection and organizer of the event. "It will drastically change the face of the supply chain for high cost aggregates and we are thrilled to have them as a featured part of the conference."
The 3rd Annual Frac Sand Supply & Logistics Conference is the largest event of the year focused on frac sand and proppant supply & logistics. Over 350 attendees are anticipated, bringing together leaders in frac sand mining, transportation & logistics, safety, procurement, oil companies, service companies, and various support services related to issues like technology, equipment, and public relations.
Portare Services has signed up as the exclusive Platinum Sponsor, the top sponsorship level. The smaller version of the PASSBOX (8'x20') will be showcased in the exhibit area of the conference.
"We've chosen the 3rd Annual Frac Sand Supply & Logistics Conference as the premiere venue to demonstrate our cutting edge product," commented Ted Weyn, CEO of Portare Services. "With the frac sand industry leaders in attendance, it is the perfect venue for us to make a lasting impact on the industry. We're looking forward to the show."
Given its ability to eliminate transloading from source to site, Cook anticipates that PASSBOX will be the talk of the conference. He summed it up with: "It is a game changer to the frac sand industry."
The conference returns in 2014 to the award winning JW Marriott Hill Country Resort in San Antonio. The conference will feature a golf outing on August 20th at the TPC San Antonio, followed by the conference on August 21 & 22.
