Canadian company Upstream Data's Bitcoin mining data center is in use in Alberta

According to, Canadian company Upstream Data allows oil companies to buy or lease modular data centers that can be installed in production facilities that emit or burn natural gas. Its Ohmm devices vary in their mining capabilities, but they all utilize natural gas in an efficient manner. The use of free energy to cast digital currencies ensures that drilling companies receive higher returns from natural gas than market price returns. Upstream Data recently announced that its three new Ohmm Mini 50 kW Bitcoin mining data centers have recently been commissioned in Alberta, Canada. These devices preserve the natural gas that would otherwise be emitted, allowing producers to open wells and increase oil production.
