FTS International owns and operates sand mines, raw sand processing plants and resin coating plants to provide a reliable source of proppant for the company's operations. Proppants are usually grains of sand, sometimes coated with a special resin to make them stronger, that prop open subsurface fractures in the rock to increase production of oil or gas.
As with all of our operations, FTSI is committed to safe and environmentally sound sand operations. Sand mining operations across the country have operated successfully for decades.
FTSI's Proppants division equipment meets or exceeds all industry and regulatory standards, and the company's compliance program is a top priority for the management team’s responsibilities. Best industry practices are used throughout the operation.
