Frac Sand Forecast
PROPOSED STUDY. NOW MARKETING. Frac sand (proppant) is a key input for unconventional operations. Understanding the demand in western Canada is essential for operators and suppliers. The impact on operational timing and costs for this primary input are important in budgeting and planning. CDL has aggregated industry drilling forecasts to develop a five-year drilling forecast in the various plays in the WCSB. This aggregated drilling forecast was used to develop a frac sand usage forecast for the major resource plays in the Basin. Deliverables include a drilling forecast, historical frac sand usage, frac sand forecast, fluid usage, fluid forecast and a report with maps, tables and graphs.
