Our Monahans facility frac sand mine spans 6,000 acres of land and includes a wet and dry plant, storage silos and automated multi-lane drive-in, drive-out trucking capability. The site  produces 40/70 and 100 mesh local sand.

While the shift to in-basin frac sand in Texas was largely a 2017 theme for some, we saw and advanced this industry shift years ago, further maintaining our position as a first mover in the industry.

Preferred has a longstanding history of leading conservation in the areas where we operate, from reclamation efforts to protecting endangered species. For 2017, we were awarded a Certificate of Inclusion into the Texas Conservation Plan for the Dunes Sagebrush Lizard. We sought expertise from numerous third- party experts to assist in the vetting process and are now managing the conservation of the Dunes Sagebrush Lizard through our own self-regulated plan. We are proud to help protect this local species.
