New Chapter 11 Filing - Chieftain Sand and Proppant

Chieftain Sand and Proppant

  • 1/9/17 Recap: "You had ONE job!" Here, mining processing and selling frac sand. Only problem is: demand for sand collapsed along with the rest of the oil and gas industry. And, to boot, fracking companies are apparently racist and prefer white sand over the brown type that Chieftain produces. And so the company filed for chapter 11 to sell the company to its term lender and DIP provider, Energy Capital Partners.
