DevvStream Announces Agreement with TS-Nano for Carbon Credit Streams from Sealant Technology for Methane-Leaking Oil & Gas Wells
July 19, 2022
VANCOUVER, BC, July 19, 2022 – DevvStream Inc. (“DevvStream” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has executed an agreement with TS-Nano to become its principal carbon streaming partner for the deployment of its patented sealant technology targeting the elimination of methane emissions from leaky oil and gas wellbores. The partnership with TS-Nano is an important step for reaching carbon mitigation targets.
- DevvStream delivers ESG solutions to the energy sector through carbon streaming agreement with TS-Nano
- DevvStream makes up front investment of US$1.25M for access to carbon streams from sealing methane leaking oil and gas wells
- DevvStream will be entitled to majority ownership of the resulting carbon credit rights from the initial projects with a share of credits on all future projects
- Offset project crediting period is expected to be up to 20 years
- Devvio makes equal equity investment in TS Nano alongside DevvStream
- Addressable market of up to 3 million decommissioned oil and gas wells in the US and 225,000 in Canada leaking methane into the atmosphere
“We are excited to announce this definitive agreement with TS-Nano, which has developed a patented, nano-based sealant that is specifically engineered to seal very thin microcracks (below 30 micrometers) to stop methane from leaking out of abandoned oil and gas wells,” said Sunny Trinh, DevvStream’s CEO. “This investment aligns with our mandate of deploying capital into high-return carbon credit projects that address climate change in an innovative, technologically focused manner.”
Reducing methane emissions is critically important in the fight against climate change, with methane release being responsible for roughly 30% of the increase in global temperatures since the pre-industrial era. Methane is up to 80 times more potent than carbon dioxide at trapping heat over the first 20 years after it reaches the atmosphere. 
As part of the agreement, DevvStream will be responsible for funding capital costs associated with sealing TS-Nano’s oil and gas well projects and will initially invest US$1.25 million into sealant projects that will initially target oil wellbores that emit at least 100 metric tons of methane per annum. The ongoing partnership will have a minimum term of 10 years, with each individual offset project having a crediting period of up to 20 years. TS-Nano will oversee the wellbore capping of projects while DevvStream will manage, quantify and certify the carbon credit data. In exchange for the contribution of capital, data management, and carbon credit certification services, DevvStream will be entitled to majority ownership of the resulting carbon credit rights from the projects capitalized from the initial $1.25M invested by DevvStream. In addition, DevvStream will share ownership of the carbon credits from all TS-Nano sealant projects during the term of the Agreement.
The oil wellbore methane capping offset project are expected to be developed under the American Carbon Registry according to the updated greenhouse gas quantification methodology. DevvStream expects the initial carbon offsets from the project to be generated in 2023.
“We are very pleased with this capital infusion and partnership with DevvStream and Devvio. We are using a new form of climate tech financing to reduce methane emissions from the atmosphere.” Mahmoud Taha, CEO of TS-Nano stated. “TS-Nano’s sealant is a superior solution to conventional cement, with one foot of TS-Nano sealant providing the sealing effectiveness of more than 100 feet of perfectly placed cement. With methane being a powerful greenhouses gas and having a global warming potential 28-34 times that of CO2,  our technology can be a powerful tool for climate change mitigation in the oil and gas sector.”
