Hart Energy proudly announces honorees for Oil and Gas Investor’s 2023 Forty Under 40 recognition program, which includes, Kanin Energy’s CEO and Co-founder, Janice Tran. This prestigious annual process began in 2016 and attracts strong support from the petroleum industry and the financial community. Honorees traditionally span varied organizations and disciplines: investment banks, oil and gas producers, midstream operators, service companies, and technology providers with responsibilities for management, acquisitions and divestitures, law, finance, and more.

Qualified individuals were nominated by peers, colleagues, or superiors in an open submission process. All are recognized for proven leadership and positive impact on their respective organizations. These role models demonstrate entrepreneurial spirit, creative problem-solving, leadership, and community involvement.

Janice’s work highlights her accomplishments at Kanin Energy, providing waste heat to power and other industrial decarbonization solutions across Canada and the United States.

As in years past, video interviews and other special features with these individuals will be posted to HartEnergy.com. Editorial profiles of each honoree will also appear in a special supplement to Oil and Gas Investor.
