Canadian Pacific (CP) has announced a multi-year agreement with Unimin Corporation of New Canaan, Connecticut, for the movement of frac sand from Unimin's facility in Wisconsin.
The facility will open in 2013 in Tunnel City, Wisconsin and will produce 2m tons of frac sand annually for energy markets in North Dakota, Texas, Colorado and elsewhere.
Under the agreement, CP will become the exclusive rail service provider at this facility for the movement of frac sand to Unimin Corporation's destination markets.
"We have a long relationship with CP at many of our plants in North America and we are delighted to expand this longstanding partnership," said Kevin F. Crawford, President and Chief Executive Officer at Unimin. "Rail is an effective way to move our products and CP is a reliable partner that will enable us to continue to deliver products to critical energy markets."
