Proton was able to quickly build a highly-skilled team and a global support network, thanks to low oil and gas prices and a new climate change treaty. In fact, Canada leads the world in expertise of down-hole combustion and integrated reservoir management.

Canada holds one-third of the world’s hydrocarbons as well as the largest bitumen reserves. Canada is also one of the world’s most stable, democratic countries with an open vibrant economy.

An industry champion seemed essential!  Thus, creating Proton Technologies – a new business dedicated to proving, patenting and commercializing the new technology- would fulfill that potential.
