Saskatchewan is set to welcome an innovative, first-of-its-kind hydrogen production project, which marks the first, formally approved initiative under the provincial government’s Saskatchewan Petroleum Innovation Incentive (SPII).

Proton Technologies will deploy its patented process to extract hydrogen from existing oil reservoirs, while carbon dioxide will remain trapped in the ground.  This cutting-edge technology is the first commercial deployment of its kind in the world.  It also has the potential to repurpose abandoned wells, fields and facilities.
