A New Centre of Excellence explores green alternatives for extracting Hydrogen from Hydrocarbons


Alberta becomes Home to a Research Team that Proposes to Pump Pure Hydrogen from Oil & Gas Reservoirs

Proton Technologies Canada Inc., a young technology firm based in oil and gas-centric Calgary, has brought together a team of experts and academics to explore a unique new technology that promises to transform Canada’s oil and gas sector into a hydrogen business.

Proton’s collaborative research projects involve the University of Calgary, the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) as well as multiple engineering firms including the global firm, Vepica and locally based Vanguard Engineering.

As oil and gas assets become stranded, abandoned or waterflooded, Proton sees a clear path forward in revitalizing these assets, leveraging the existing knowledge base and in-place infrastructure, reinvigorating the workforce while growing the economy.
