We have been approached about granting a sand and gravel lease on property on Thompson Creek (E Fel Par). Does anyone have an idea for the range of royalty amounts on frac sand? We haven't had a sand and gravel lease in 25 years.
The offer we received was for $1/ton, which we think is very low. However, our adjacent landowner is receiving such amount. Apparently, his land does not have sufficient sand for the fracking operations.
Wyomingite, How does $2/ton compare to royalty on sand for local operations? The $1/ton royalty which is being proposed appears to be in line with royalty being paid for local operations in the Felicianas. I am wondering how your $2/ton offer compares to "standard" royalty in your area. Tom
Minden is a staging area for one of the frac sand companies. Don't recall which off the top of my head.
Not every type of sand will do for fracking wells. When you start meeting engineering specifications, the price should go up considerably, albeit adjusted for supply. See paragraph four below:
