  • Can Lithium Fuel Alberta’s Future?

    Petro-Lithium in Alberta

    The recovery of lithium from oilfield brines in Alberta is expected to help meet increasing demand for this metal, which is an important component of the rapidly growing rechargeable battery and power storage industry. This article examines the distribution of the element within the province and compares the two operators with the largest land bases (permit areas), that are poised to begin commercial recovery of this valuable resource.Read more.

  • Hydrogen from Oil and Gas Reservoirs

    Sparking a Potentially Explosive Revolution?

    Proton Technologies is currently field testing production and collection of hydrogen gas from a heavy oil reservoir in west-central Saskatchewan. The process uses the reservoir as a reactor to produce hydrogen at depth while trapping the other reaction products underground. If successful, this method could significantly lower the costs of low (or zero) carbon emission hydrogen production for both industrial and transportation uses in the future.Read more.
