DENVER, March 10, 2020 — Project Canary, the leader in continuous methane monitoring solutions, today announced that Carrie Hudak has joined the company as Chief Operating Officer. Carrie was most recently Vice President, DJ Basin Development for Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, where she led that company’s asset development program in Colorado from May 2017 to August 2019. This is a new position for Project Canary that reflects the tremendous growth the company is experiencing and forecast into the future.
Carrie brings depth of experience in technical, operational and executive positions at Anadarko, most recently as Vice President, DJ Basin Development where she was directly responsible for leading an asset development team and $1.4 billion capital budget. Prior to that, she served in other key roles at Anadarko, including Director, Rockies Business Development as well as diverse leadership and technical roles over her 19-year career at the company.
Her responsibilities at Project Canary include overseeing day-to-day operations, including supply chain management, field monitoring systems and customer facing initiatives. She will play a key role in coordinating company resources to fulfill the Project Canary brand promise and ensure customer success as the company grows.
Carrie will also lead the company’s relationship with the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines with respect to the Continuous Monitoring Program that includes several oil and gas producers, including Crestone Peak Resources, Bayswater Exploration & Production and other operators. The Continuous Monitoring Program is a consortium between oil and gas producers, the Payne Institute and Project Canary with the objective to conduct continuous monitoring at the facilities of participating operators in an effort to reduce fugitive emissions and further improve air quality. The Payne Institute serves as the role of the honest broker, assuring data privacy, integrity and security for this multi-state program.
Chris Romer, President and Founder, said, “I am thrilled to welcome Carrie to the Project Canary team. As a former executive with a major E&P operator, Carrie brings first-hand experience with the challenges that oil and gas producers face in developing their assets, strengthening their ESG initiatives and helping the industry facilitate the transition to a carbon-neutral economy. She has the acumen, technical expertise and leadership qualities needed to help Project Canary fulfill its customer commitments and scale-up as demand grows for our continuous air emissions monitoring solution. Importantly, Carrie can be a valuable resource to our customers in this dynamic market.”
Carrie Hudak, COO, said: “I am excited to join the Project Canary team and help shape the future of the oil and gas industry. Leading operators are making commitments to further strengthen their environmental, health and sustainability performance. Technology-based solutions like those from Project Canary have the potential to help oil and gas producers significantly mitigate emissions and comply with increasingly complex regulatory requirements. Continuous air monitoring has significant potential to improve the effectiveness of existing oilfield processes and resources while also having a positive impact on the environment.”
Carrie is an active part of the community. She previously served as Chairperson and Board Member of Coloradoans for Responsible Energy Development and as Treasurer and Executive Board Member for the Colorado Oil and Gas Association. She currently serves on the Mile High United Way Board of Trustees and on the Board of the American Red Cross of the Mile High Area.
