About Us

About Us

Midstream Silica operates an ISO 9001:2015 certified quality management system at all 3 of our locations as well as holds a COR certification.   We partner with some of North America’s natural gas and light oil pressure pumping service companies to provide them with transload storage facilities in strategic locations.

Midstream Silica owns and operates a facility in Whitecourt, Alberta and another in Glidden, Saskatchewan. These facilities are strategically placed to service the active Montney and Viking plays. Both facilities have expansion capabilities on the land base with the ability to store or transload virtually any type of product. With onsite scaling and multiple overhead loading silos, customers experience efficient load and unload times.

Midstream Silica has strategic alliances with sand mines giving our customers access to premium Canadian and American sand. We continue to pursue additional avenues to expand our reach, connect with new customers and partner on build to suit facilities.  We are seeking partners for additional development on our sites and offer build to suit options for turnkey facilities and operations.
