In a rapidly evolving energy landscape, PTAC stands out, driving the future of hydrocarbon technologies with a sharp focus on sustainability and global market integration. PTAC facilitates the development of oil and gas technology to assist in solving challenges across drilling, completions and field operations, managing environmental impacts, reducing costs, improving value added products and moving towards a low carbon emission environment. We achieved record revenue growth in 2022-2023, reflecting our dynamic approach and international impact.

We are seeking a President and CEO to inspire and chart strategic paths that align with PTAC’s mission, driving technological advancements and sustainability. Your expertise in engaging and uniting diverse stakeholders from global oil and gas leaders, government officials, SME’s volunteers and consultants to environmental agencies will enhance PTAC’s role in international markets.

Your robust background in engineering, energy, environmental sciences or business coupled with substantial experience in leading technology-driven initiatives in the oil and gas sector while fostering a culture of innovation, collaboration and excellence is what you have earned a reputation for.

Your passion for technology and your leadership will not only shape the future of Canada’s oil and gas industry, but also contribute significantly to global environmental goals by spearheading ambitious projects aimed at reducing methane emissions by 75% by 2030. Let’s innovate, collaborate, and lead together, setting new standards for excellence and responsibility in our sector.
