CALGARY, Alberta -Saturday 12 June 2021 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Last weekend Proton Technologies began loading a trailer with compressed hydrogen from its oilfield.

“As we scale up, costs below 25 cents per kg of H2 seem probable,” says Chair and CEO, Grant Strem.

The process involves injecting oxygen and CO2 into old oilfields like the one Proton purchased out of bankruptcy. Large old oilfields usually still have most of their oil when they are abandoned. Like in a car engine, oxidizing hydrocarbons releases energy.

This liberates hydrogen within the oil field. Injecting ion-rich waste streams turns CO2 into carbonate, producing additional hydrogen while leaving the carbon locked solidly underground. “Our hydrogen should ultimately have a carbon intensity far below zero since we can inject huge volumes of CO2 with oxygen,” added Mr. Strem.

“Big old oilfields are generally co-located with big infrastructu ... Read more »
