Right now, a very strange thing is going on at some of the world’s premier oil and gas producing companies.
They’re trying to diversify into a competing business model: lithium production.
Now, you may have read earlier this week about ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM) looking to open its first major lithium production facility in Arkansas, with the ambition of becoming one of the world’s leading lithium suppliers to the electric vehicle industry.
Well, this is far from isolated to ExxonMobil. Every major fossil fuel brand, whether it’s made public or not, is currently scrambling to do something similar because, to put plainly, their primary business model is going the way of dinosaurs.
But how can this be done? Surely the process for mining lithium, and extracting oil and gas from the Earth’s depths couldn’t possibly be similar enough for the transition from one to the other to be anything approaching simple.
While that seems like a safe assumption, it’s also patently false.
Lithium production and fossil fuel production share one common thread which, when exploited, makes the transition from oil and gas to lithium almost seamless.

Can't Beat 'Em? Join 'Em
Let me explain.
Most modern oil and gas properties rely on brine to squeeze the desired resource from deep in the earth to the surface.
This brine, a complex water-based solution, contains lithium in trace quantities.
Using a proper filtration method could turn any brine pond into a viable lithium resource.
And it’s not just viable, it is, in fact, superior to the standard method for lithium production on almost every level.
It’s quicker, cheaper, more efficient, and far less taxing on the environment.
In fact, all it takes is the installation of a filtration plant within the fossil fuel production cycle. Then most any oil and gas property can start producing lithium in just a few months time.
Production of fossil fuels doesn't even need to be interrupted.
Unlike traditional lithium properties, which take upwards of 10-12 years from inception to first shipment, this process can start producing salable product in just a few months time.
At a point in history where we’re shifting away from the fossil fuel standard and moving into a carbon-free paradigm, this filtration process isn’t just desirable for the world’s biggest energy companies, it’s downright necessary for long term survival.
This Isn't Mining… This Is A Scalable Technology That Could Change The World
Right now, this process is being pioneered by a small Canadian technology company at an oil and gas property located in Northern Alberta.
It’s important to note that this company isn’t a lithium miner at all, but a lithium extraction technology company.
Their product is a process, which means it can be licensed or sold to any company with interests in the fossil fuel sector.
It also means that lithium production can ramp up, supplying skyrocketing demand without any significant infrastructural modifications to existing resources or capital expenditures.
This technology could not have come at a better time, as the world is about to quietly enter into a potentially catastrophic lithium deficit thanks to rapid expansion in the EV, wireless device and distributed energy storage sectors.
The company behind it all is young, small, and completely focused on commercializing this process.
It was founded just a few years ago by specialists from the petrochemical industry, and today stands as one of the only players in the field of alternative lithium extraction.

Today, it trades at a market capitalization of less than $20M USD. It’s first production runs are expected to commence by next summer, and scale up rapidly after that.
Just a few years from now, this company could easily be in the billion dollar range, or, more likely, the target of a massive buyout by one of any number of major energy brands.
If I sound excited about this company, there’s good reason. I believe it could be the lynchpin in a massive restructuring of the lithium production industry.

The stock is currently trading at depressed prices because of a momentary dip in lithium prices, but with commercial production just around the corner, things are about to start unfolding very fast.
