About Gen6

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. Gen6 is 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.


The average two-well Haynesville pad requires approximately 1,200 truckloads of sand. It is estimated that production from the Gen6 mine will take a million truck miles off Louisiana roads per year.
