Yukon Black™ Proppant Available Exclusively for Canada

Momentive Specialty Chemicals Inc. (Momentive) is focused on providing our Canadian customers with advanced proppant technology to offer new solutions for increasing well production. We have always been committed to supplying resin coated proppants to Canada and will continue that effort in the future.

Momentive’s Yukon Black™ proppants are a next-generation resin coated sand that bonds at low temperatures. These proppants are ideal for fracture treatments in the low temperature reservoirs in Canada where flowback control is necessary. Low temperature bonding down to 70°F (21°C) bottom-hole static temperature is achieved without the use of a consolidation aid.

Along with these features, the Yukon Black proppant Stress Bond™ technology delivers all the typical advantages of a curable resin coated proppant. This includes proppant flowback control, proppant embedment minimization, and proppant fines reduction, which all lead to enhanced well production. These advanced new proppants are being manufactured in Momentive’s proppant production plant in Sturgeon County near Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta.

The proppant manufacturing plant, sales office, transload facilities, and the technical expertise we offer in Canada, clearly shows the support we have for our Canadian customers. Momentive is also the only manufacturer of resin coated proppants in Canada. We are supplying our customers with the latest innovative proppant technology, which now includes our new Yukon Black resin coated sand.
