Vertical Integration

As a leader among peer companies, Pioneer has achieved significant cost savings and operating efficiencies by adopting a vertical integration model.

By owning service equipment, integrating specialized services and hiring the right people for the job, Pioneer is reducing drilling and completions costs while supporting the execution of its development program. The Company’s vertical integration model is designed to complement operations and provide superior returns on investment.

Sand Services

In April 2012, Pioneer acquired a large U.S. industrial sands company, which was renamed Premier Silica and later became known as Pioneer Sands in June 2017. The acquisition secured a high-quality, low-cost and logistically advantaged brown sand supply for Pioneer to use for its growing fracture stimulation requirements in the Permian Basin.
