Our Products

Proppants - Produced by Pattison

Our 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. Our products 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.
20/40 - Silica

Extraordinary quality, round grain, frac sand. Our sand products offer exceptional properties in sphericity, conductivity, structural integrity, and crush strength.

30/50 - Silica

Low Turbidity value ensures the best fracture fluid performance and prevents excessive use and waste of buffers and other chemical additives.

40/70 - Silica

Consistent grain size beats most of the competition to provide reliable and predictable performance for downhole evaluation and ultimate recovery.

100 Mesh - Silica

Exceptional Crush Resistance values are some of the highest in the industry, equaling or exceeding 12 K for natural quartz material.
