We reliably manage our customer’s proppant and well completion needs with logistic solutions that cover the entire supply chain.

Proppants
Largest Supplier of Quality
Northern White Proppant in the WCSB

Source Energy’s facilities and rail network deliver quality Northern White proppant from our Wisconsin facilities into the WCSB. Our facilities are located along the Canadian National (CN) rail lines for direct access to our terminals.

We offer product flexibility for specific well requirements with proppant sizes of 20/40, 30/50, 40/70 and 100 mesh.

Quantity

Our mines and processing facilities avoid supply shortfalls and ensure security of supply:

  • >30 years of Northern White reserves
  • 4.8 mmtpa production capacity
