A distribution of $0.105 per unit has also been approved for holders of units in Solaris Oilfield Infrastructure, LLC, which is subject to the same payment and record dates.
Solaris also announced today that its Board of Directors has authorized a share repurchase program for up to $25 million of Solaris’ Class A common stock.
