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. 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.
