HOUSTON — Solaris Oilfield Infrastructure Inc., a supplier of proppant (frac sand) systems for the oil and gas industry, has inked a seven-year contract with an undisclosed operator to build a rail-served transload facility in Kingfisher, Okla.

When complete, the 300-acre site will accommodate unit trains of sand other materials used in support of nearby oil and gas industries. The transload site will include an initial 8,000-foot unit train loop and 18,000 feet of rail sidings, followed with 30,000 tons of silo storage space scheduled for mid-2018.

Union Pacific will deliver the unit trains.

Solaris officials are currently in discussions with other energy operators in the area on negotiating similar long-term transload agreements.

The facility will serve as the first independent, unit-train capable transload facility in Oklahoma.

Construction will begin later this month with the first delivery scheduled for January 2018.
