• CanERIC is currently looking for solutions for reducing emissions from tank vents, pneumatic devices and surface casing vent flows.
  • Projects are being developed to test electrical generation devices and compressors. A project is underway to evaluate alternative cement products for remediating surface casing vent flows.
  • If you have or know of a technology that could be applied to reducing methane emissions, please contact us.

November 2021:

CanERIC is now approximately halfway through the three-years of current funding from NRCan and Alberta Innovates. CanERIC has now approved $2.2 million of testing technologies, with slightly less than $1 million remaining to allocate before March 31, 2023. Tests have been completed, or are underway, for a catalytic converter, 4 combustors, 5 electrical generators, alternative products to cements, a compressor, a three-phase pump, 2 trials of a pneumatic replacement technology, a low-volume measurement technology, and two tank vent studies. If you are a producer and wish to join and learn about these technologies, or are a researcher and wish to collaborate with a great group of knowledgeable researchers or have a technology that you’d like the members to consider, please contact Larry at [email protected]tac.org403-540-1639.
