We hope everyone had a safe and fun 4th of July, as expected it was a quiet holiday week in the frac sand market. Pricing for both northern white and FOB Kermit remained in the same range, but dropped slightly lower. An expected quiet week for overall activity and since many mines are not running at full capacity pricing remained at a relatively stable position.

This past week 40/70m saw movement in both northern white and Permian markets. Northern white 40/70m pricing was mixed and continues to be the one northern white product moving on a consistent basis. The FOB Odessa 40/70m price was down to its lowest price in the last 3 months, while FOB mine pricing was up week over week. This price movement indicates an uptick in demand for 40/70m in other basins, while a flat or weaker demand for the product in the Permian. This spread will be something to keep an eye on as northern white producers seek arbitrage opportunities on the spot market.
