Case Study:

Frac Sand Plant

TPS Provided Due Diligence, Reserve Evaluation, Risk Mitigation and EPCM Services

This project began with the client asking for assistance in completing the due diligence work on a greenfield project. TPS helped to qualify the quality and quantity of the reserves, obtain permits and develop the business model required to obtain the capital to proceed. The customer wanted to build a greenfield site with railroad access, high-quality reserves and a low operating cost. TPS was asked to help assist in identifying risks and putting together plans to mitigate those risks. Once the plant was approved, TPS was asked to provide EPCM services.
