CEO Today Global Awards 2022

orbin Coyes is an entrepreneur and professional engineer born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, where he continues to live with his wife and three teenage children. Corbin’s previous experience as a partner in Marquis Alliance, an Executive at Secure Energy and the Technical Director of the Canadian Heavy Oil Association (CHOA) have demonstrated a history of accomplishments, provided a wide scope of knowledge in the industry and have created a solid network of professional connections. He is the inventor of Tangentflow, an innovative universal valve that is found in oil wells across the world. Providing a win for both the industry and the environment, Tangentflow significantly increases oil production while decreasing overall carbon footprint. Corbin spent six months of experimentation in a flow-run laboratory with his father back in 2006. It was a ‘eureka’ moment when the inventor discovered 3.141598 was the serendipitous number that converged all of his findings, leading to the creation of Tangentflow. Corbin pursued a patent to protect his invention and moved forward with a local farmer who was willing to try the valve in a shallow oil well. Timing worked in Corbin’s favour, as he was a partner in another oil service company that sold, giving him the financial resources and time to focus and promote Tangentflow. Corbin was determined to share his discovery with the world. It was not easy to convince the oil industry to adopt his new technology, as the standard technology had not been challenged for over 50 years. Corbin knew it would take time to prove Tangentflow’s longevity and efficiencies and the only way to promote his technology was to show people, face to face, how it worked. As the CEO of Tangentflow, Corbin hit the road with a portable flow run device in the back of his jeep. 10,000 km road trips visiting pump shops and attending oil shows across North America became a regular occurrence. Tangentflow began to make its way into several wells across Canada, and eventually broke into the US market. A study was conducted by an oil field operator in North Dakoda in 2015, it was a game changer! The data provided conclusive results demonstrating a $7.3 million dollar increase of oil production in 100 wells over a one-year period, by replacing conventional valves with Tangentflow. News of this study travelled fast and launched Tangentflow’s sales exponentially. The growth continues today as Tangentflow has been accepted as an industry standard across the world. With this growth, Tangentflow has the potential to decrease our world’s C02 emissions up to 46 million tonnes per year. TangentFlow was purchased in 2019 by Doug Quinn, a legacy in the industry and the owner of Q2 ALS. Q2ALS is the largest private artificial lift company in the world. After the purchase of Tangentflow, technology was combined to create the Q2Flow pump system. Corbin is now the Vice President of Engineering for Canada and USA at Q2ALS, he holds 7 patents and continues to search out ground-breaking engineering technology to support Q2’s continued growth. Corbin is excited about Q2’s recent partnership with Oilify, a world leader in oilfield tool innovation. Oilify’s recent invention, Whaleshark (inventors Jeff Saponja & Rob Hari), works with Q2Flow to significantly increase efficiency and decrease carbon emissions. With eyes set on net zero for 2050, environmental impact remains priority. You can expect Q2 ALS & Oilify to continue to create exciting solutions for the oil and gas industry that will continue to decrease carbon footprints. 69 www. ceotodaymagazine . com USA CEO, TangentFl ow Inc . 7883 Edgar Indus t r i a l Way, Red De e r, Albe r ta , Canada T4N 3R2 | T: +1 403 -343 - 8302 | corb incoye s@gma i l . com Corbin Coyes C Corbin was determined to share his discovery with the world.
