E M I SPRING 2013 H I - C R U S H PA RT N E R S L P INDUSTRIAL MINERALS Special Sand Not just any sand is suited to hydraulically fracture oil and gas wells – Northern white from Wisconsin produces some of the best frac sand available. [ BY RUSS GAGER ] Ask for it by name – Northern white sand from Hi-Crush Partners LP. Like the variety of dairy products, beer or cranberries that make Wisconsin famous, companies performing hydraulic fracturing of oil and gas wells are seeking the highest-quality sand for their operations. “The market is emphasizing the importance of high quality Northern white sand,” Hi-Crush COO Jay Alston maintains. “There are proppants that are sold cheaper and they have less landed cost because of location, but because of their inferior quality and crush strength, they’re just not being accepted by your bigger service companies and producers.” Hi-Crush obtains Northern white sand from its two mines in Wyeville and Augusta, Wis. “We consistently put out high quality material because of its superior crush strength and turbidity, as well as sieve distribution compared to others,” Alston asserts. “We’re creating a brand awareness, since end users are starting to request our material. We have a track record for superior quality and timely shipments as well as a reputation for being easy to work with.” PROFILE Hi-Crush Partners LP | Headquarters: Houston | Service: Northern white frac sand | Employees: Approximately 130 at both plants 110 Hi-Crush Partners specializes in mining frac sand.. • Wisconsin “We’re through no fault of our own creating a brand awareness. End users are starting to request our material.” // JAY ALSTON, COO
