Whibco produces a high quality Proppant sand used in the Hydraulic Fracturing process. Used primarily in the Marcellus Shale formation in PA, proppant sands allow the gas from a well drilled through shale to escape and venture to the surface. We produce the main typical grades of “Frac” sands specified by Oil & Gas Service companies – 20/40, 40/70, and 70/140 and with our hydrosizer we can produce material to very tight specification. Call us with your specs, and we will show you what we can do.
