For more than 20 years the TBM Group of Companies, including Future Frac Storage Systems and TBM Sand & Storage Logistics among others, has been innovating solutions to tough logistical problems in the Oil & Gas industry. With the growing trend of unconventional O&G development, predicated on horizontal drilling and multi stage frac treatment, conventional supply chain models have been stretched or broken. Looking to current and future needs, using top industry feedback, PROPBOX ™ was born. Although conventional means are catching up to demand, it has been a slow and costly process by any measure: facilities cost, rail & truck demurrage cost, as well as poor asset utilization. The PROPBOX ™ System has been developed with multiple supply chain points in mind. The end goal is to provide greater value, mobility, flexibility & versatility at the same or reduced cost. Frac sand storage doubling as transport reduces bulk handling, product degradation, and opportunity for contamination. Mobility allows for more options in supply chain planning, reduced dependence on costly conventional transport modes, closer access to product when needed, and the ability to move operations with market demand.
Increase asset utilization with rail, reduce facility setup cost & time, adjust your supply chain to your needs, protect your product, and set up first in undeveloped markets with PROPBOX ™ mobile frac sand storage.
