Twin Eagle Sand acquires West Virginia frac sand terminal

Twin Eagle Sand Logistics LLC announced last week it has acquired a frac sand terminal near Bridgeport, West Virginia, from Process Transloading Bridgeport.

The Bridgeport terminal is positioned to serve the southern Utica and Marcellus sand logistics markets with more than 130 rail-car spots and 20,000 tons of flat and silo storage, Twin Eagle officials said in a press release.

Twin Eagle is among the largest frac sand terminal developers and operators in the United States, with assets in the Eagle Ford, Permian, DJ and Powder River basins. The Bridgeport terminal marks Twin Eagle's entry into the growing Northeast sand logistics market, company officials said.

"We believe the Marcellus and Utica basins, while established have significant growth potential given sand technology advancements and infrastructure additions needed to address logistical constraints," Twin Eagle Chief Executive Officer said Griff Jones.

Twin Eagle's existing terminals combined control more than 1,600 rail-car spaces with nearly 85,000 tons of storage capacity.
