Can heavy oil production help reduce CO2 emissions?

Extracting more oil in a carbon-constrained world may not appear logical at first glance. Yet, it may provide the best way to reduce CO2 emissions.

Inventys co-founder Brett Henkel will share how the heavy oil industry could produce carbon-negative oil while also stimulating the most lucrative market for captured carbon at this time.

Inventys is building a 30TPD carbon capture plant in Saskatchewan at Husky Energy’s Pikes Peak South operation near Lloydminster. Its purpose is twofold: to prove Inventys’ proprietary structure adsorbent and temperature swing process and to demonstrate a true breakthrough in post-combustion capture economics where the source of CO2 is connected to a point of use.

This presentation will explore why Inventys is focused on delivering carbon capture systems at a scale of 30 to 600 TPD and provide an update on the pilot plant progress.







Brett Henkel’s unabashed optimism tempered by his mechanical engineering background and gas separation experience combine to bring a rare perspective to his position on Inventys’ executive team and board.

Transferring the company’s breakthrough CO2-capture technology to customers’ sites relies heavily on Brett’s strengths for identifying and understanding the technical and business details and relating those details to partners’ teams, approving agencies, and stakeholders.

As co-founder, he was instrumental in creating the process and the hardware used to prove the technology’s effectiveness as well as mobilizing external support throughout the path to becoming a successful innovation.  These experiences strengthened his knowledge of business development and program management priorities.

Prior to launching Inventys, Mr. Henkel was the program manager for QuestAir Technologies’ compact hydrogen production system with its partner, ExxonMobil. He is credited with designing the world’s first solenoid-driven rapid pressure swing adsorption test station.

Brett received his Bachelor of Science in Physics, with distinction, and a Mechanical Engineering degree from the University of Victoria.
