Pattison Silica Proppants

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. Pattison produces proppants that meet specific completion project specifications. Our proppants are perfectly spherical, quartzite sand that meets stringent quality specifications.

Also known as Northern White, frack sand, hydro fracturing sand, geo-thermal sand, and coarse sand,  Pattison’s proppants aer produced from the St. Peters Formation. Proppants produced from this formation have superior physical properties than other Northern White proppants. 

St. Peter Sandstone

St. Peter Sandstone, a sedimentary rock formation belonging to the Ordovician System, is composed almost entirely of silica in the form of quartz sand grains. Grains are well-sorted, friable, ultra-pure, fine-to medium-grained, quartzose sandstone with silica content higher than 99 weight percent.

Exceptional Quality Silica Proppants

Pattison proppants are sourced from our Clayton IA Ordovician St Peter Limestone Mine.  Material is extracted from the Sandstone layer offering superior properties to proppants from outside of the St Peter formation. Stringent testing and quality assurance procedures ensure that Pattison proppants meet the highest performance specifications, and are certified by ISO & API.
