Hi-Crush Partners LP has resumed operations at its Northern White frac sand production facility in Whitehall, Wisconsin.

Concurrently, Hi-Crush has idled operations at its Northern White frac sand production facility in Augusta, Wisconsin.

The plants are about 30 miles apart.

Robert E. Rasmus, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Hi-Crush, said: “Our decision to resume operations at Whitehall and temporarily idle dry plant operations at our Augusta facility is a direct result of the evolving needs of our expanded E&P customer base. Since temporarily idling Whitehall dry plant operations last fall, our success in contracting with E&Ps has increased customer demand in basins better served by that facility. This increase in demand, predominantly in the Northeast, is more directly and efficiently served from our Blair and Whitehall facilities located on the Canadian National Railway. Our decision to resume operations at Whitehall will allow us to maintain optimal, cost-efficient service to our Northern White sand customers. Our ability to quickly adapt to these changes is driven by our flexible portfolio of production facilities and agile workforce.”
