Transloading St. Peter Silica Proppants is more than just the process of transferring products from one mode of transportation to another. At the Hughes Springs – Pattison Sand Logistics transload facility, the efficient tracking, movement, storage, inventory management, and business intelligence associated with the delivery of our products is our focus.
Our silica proppants are made of a high-purity quartz sand that is very durable and very round. They are crush-resistant, and are produced for use by the petroleum industry. They are used in safe and proven hydraulic stimulation processes used for over 70 years on in excess of 2 million oil and natural gas wells.
Shale plays that hold vast amounts of oil and natural gas lack adequate pore space for these fluids to flow to a well. Our proppants assists in holding tiny cracks in the shale open so that these liquids and gases can flow to the well head.
