According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, natural gas production in the Haynesville accounts for 8.5% of all U.S. dry natural gas production. The growing need for a more local frac sand source has become paramount as drilling in the Haynesville continues to increase. 

Gen6 Proppants offers superior in-basin frac sand solutions to Haynesville Shale producers. The new Gen6 mine in Red River Parish, currently under construction and expected to be operational in Q3 2019, will be the closest frac sand mine to the ten top producers in the Haynesville — the nearest comparable facility is 65 drive miles away. 

Our location allows us to significantly reduce transportation and logistics costs by cutting out expensive long-haul rail, ultimately providing the most cost-effective, timely and dependable sand solution, so that our customers can maximize their production values.
