Transforming the Supply Chain for the Oil and Gas Industry

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

Largest Supplier of Quality
Proppant in the WCSB

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


Northern White proppant is used by operators to achieve high production.

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


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

  • >30 years of Northern White reserves
  • 4.8 mmtpa production capacity
  • 3 closed loop wet and dry plants with year-round processing

Source also operates the closest Domestic Sand mine to the Montney region, ensuring efficiency of supply for our customers as well.


We deliver quality proppant directly to our terminals located throughout the WCSB, saving both time and shipping costs:

  • Processing facilities located directly along CN rail lines
  • CN’s largest WCSB in-bound customer
  • Fleet of 2,600 rail cars

Source Energy Services’ commitment to environmental sustainability starts at our mine and processing facilities. Our processing facilities are ecologically sustainable with closed-loop water systems that recycle water and eliminate the need for retention ponds. And we don’t stop there – our land reclamation process begins soon after mining activities conclude.
