Opportunity for Net-zero at Country Scale
Our Impact on Environment & Community
Our Series of projects on Lake Kivu will de-risk and in time prevent a one-day eruption of 2 gigatons of carbon.
The lake in picture is a 500 bcm, natural CCS that can be enhanced to store up to 5 gigatons of carbon.
With Hydragas extraction of biomethane, the lake will have 99% less risk of eruption within 20 years.
Community safety is enhanced with the prevention of this eruption of a cloud of toxic gas filling the valley.

The cards below assist navigation to pages with in-depth details of Lake Kivu and the Hydragas extraction technology. Among the cards there are interesting blogs, where we have updates and opinions on issues that are material to the health and wealth of the lake communities.
Our website is prepared as an information portal. It explains the issues around how we develop a remarkable, nature-based energy source in Africa.
Lake Kivu is the second-deepest African Great Lake, with a unique trap for anoxic biogas formation. The lake poses a danger to its community but is simultaneously a source of wealth from resources in the depths. We discuss views on the best development options.
We explain how and why the right choices can be made. It is knowledge worth sharing. We have seen how a lack of knowledge, mixed with opportunism, is a source of poor decision-making. The price of poor decisions is measured in lives and opportunity lost.
Hydragas Energy – Our Mission Hydragas Energy Limited is a Canadian company. We develop projects extracting unusual renewable energy plays, where gas is found
Hydragas develops Lake Kivu Gas: Delivering clean energy and safety Welcome to our website. We want you to understand how Hydragas develops Lake Kivu
FAQs are provided for common questions on Lake Kivu and public perceptions of dangers it represents. Answers to more detailed questions from reviewers of the Management Prescriptions are provided too. Crazy questions got some carzy replies.
Update: As one of a group of experts appointed to work on Lake Kivu’s safe development, we studied the dangers. Both lava and seismic rifting are two “Black-Swan” events we fear. But only if these are very large events they become extremely dangerous. I update this blog to show what we fear most compared to where we are now.
Regional renewable power play in East Africa Hydragas plans a 600 MW power project series. Our plan is to develop half Lake Kivu’s potential
The key reference documents for Lake Kivu’s development are simplified below. Each of these documents carries an extensive listing of additional reference documents, if
