As fracking safety improves and the industry ramps up even more, there will be a growing demand for SLCA's injection product.

EOG has had superior results using considerably more sand propellant per lateral foot. I believe this will be a growing trend with other oil companies in tight shale formations. As drilling steps up more tonnage of sand wil be required for a growing number of completions. As demand increases, so will the price for fracking grade sand.

it seems like such a basic, boring commodity, yet, with the domestic O&G energy boom in full-swing; good quality sand is in demand & should continue for a good while as the alternatives - while good performing - are currently significantly more expensive than good 'ole silica!-)

I'm stepping a little outside of my circle of competence here, and am also a little late to the party. The articles below explain why I think (even at this price) US Silica Holdings will continue to outperform for awhile longer. In summary, they sell dirt, and it's in high demand!

US drilling is booming due to fracturing the tight reservoir. This company produces the sand used in fracing.
