Zero Emissions, Low Cost Hydrogen Production from Oil Reservoirs

Technical Stream | In partnership with Energy Now and Empowering Pumps & Equipment
Duration: 45 mins


The oil sands deposits in Western Canada not only represent a vast store of hydrocarbons (oil) that can be converted into fuel and petrochemicals but also a vast hydrogen store? A super clean valuable energy vector and chemical feedstock. With the need to find new energy recovery processes for oil sands reservoirs that have low energy and emissions intensities, hydrogen production is a viable alternative for energy production from heavy oil and oil sands reservoirs by using in situ gasification technology.

In this webinar you will learn the following:

• How to make more money from existing oil assets by producing clean H2.
• The main relevant chemical reactions.
• An overview of energy balance calculations.
• Where Proton is at technically, and next steps including detail on our Stantec-designed expansion and upgrade.

Grant Strem
Chairman & CEO, Proton Technologies

Born and raised in Calgary, Grant Strem has a B.Sc. in Geology and an M.Sc. in Reservoir Characterization, both from the University of Calgary. He considers himself an Explorationist, and worked for various producers including Paramount, Burlington Resources, ConocoPhillips, Total E&P, and Husky. Grant also worked as a Reserves Evaluator for GLJ Petroleum Consultants, and was a Research Analyst at TD Securities covering the oil sands sector prior to starting his own oil company; which focused on light oil, helium, and geothermal resources domestically and internationally within fractured granite systems. Grant’s focus changed in 2015 when he co-founded Proton Technologies with one of his friends and former professor’s; Dr. Ian Gates, who was then Department Head for the Petroleum & Chemical Engineering faculty. Grant believes it is possible to produce H2 at far lower cost per joule of energy than diesel & gasoline, without emissions.
