On May 10, Project Canary added Tanya Hendricks its chief commercial officer. Hendricks will lead all commercial operations and manage the company's expansion overseeing corporate objectives and implementing strategic growth strategies, a company release announced.

Over her career, Hendricks has held several notable positions, including acting COO with Enverus, the world’s largest energy-focused SaaS company. She also was a lecturer at the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin and was associate director of the McCombs Energy Center. Before working at McCombs, she was a director at Duff and Phelps, an international advisory firm.

“We are proud to have a talented, mission-driven leader join our team,” Project Canary CEO Chris Romer said in the press release. “Tanya has the combination of impressive leadership, energy sector experience and a true passion for utilizing data and technology to improve energy operations and accelerate innovation.”

Project Canary is focused on enabling natural gas to be produced and transported in a manner that controls emissions, land use, water and community concerns. This unlocks the opportunity for responsibly-sourced U.S. natural gas to stand for the highest quality differentiated gas in the world, helping to reduce emissions on a global scale. As a result, the company is looking to make an even more significant impact on a global scale to help drive accountable, measurement-based ESG reporting.

Hendricks is uniquely positioned to help Project Canary at this critical juncture. Based in Austin, Texas, she will be readily accessible to customers and will bolster Project Canary’s presence in Texas, an important market as the company expands its presence in basins across the U.S.

“The focus on ESG has been broad, with little definition around what standards should be or how we should meet them,” Hendricks said in the press release. “With granular measurement of emissions and reliable ESG scoring, Project Canary is working to add much-needed rigor to the ESG reporting process so that we can manage environmental concerns, rather than simply report on them.”
