Momentive Has the Bakken Covered

Momentive is well situated to provide resin coated proppant to the Bakken Shale.

We offer manufacturing capacity to the north and to the southeast on the main rail lines supporting the area. The proppant manufacturing plant to the north is located in Sturgeon County, Alberta with the other plant located in Oregon, Illinois.

Three of our transloads are directly in the Bakken Shale. This includes transloads in the east, west and in Canada to the north. These three strategically located transloads are in Lampman, Saskatchewan; Minot, North Dakota; and Dore, North Dakota. Momentive currently has storage capacity for 60 million lbs of proppant in the Bakken.

The Dore, ND transload is our newest addition and has been very advantageous for hydraulic fracturing treatments taking place in the southern region of the play.

Our strong logistics provide easy highway access to the main areas of the play. Momentive customers can have ease of access from Canada to the U.S. with a FAST Card. More routing alternatives are available to maximize playloads when weight restrictions are in place. There is also the benefit of Super B capability to Montana from the Canadian transloads. The fact that there are no restrictions from embargoes provides even more assurance of reliability and consistency of supply.

Not only do we have the logistics and capacity, we offer the most advanced resin coated proppant technology. This includes our new OilPlusTM proppant for enhanced oil recovery. This innovative proppant is currently being manufactured in the U.S. and Canada.

We provide the best proppant technology, manufacturing capabilities, and logistics to serve the Bakken. This is a better and more cost effective solution than imported and domestic ceramic proppant. Importing ceramic proppant can also create additional small particles due to the amount of transportation and handling required to get it to location.

At Momentive, we are focused on the Bakken Shale and will be far into the future. Momentive provides a “Consistent Supply, Right Where You Need It.”
