LiEP Energy Ltd. (pronounced “leap”) is a lithium technology company that has developed a lithium refining process to create a high-grade lithium hydroxide that can be used in energy storage solutions. The company is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
What We Do
LiEP’s technology is an electro-chemical extraction process for lithium hydroxide refining from lithium concentrates
We will use our technology to increase supplies of lithium to meet global demand for lithium-ion batteries used in electric vehicles.
Solving big problems requires our internal strengths as well as strategic partners and advisors
Conducting focused research to develop robust technology
Produce low environmental footprint technology that requires minimal fresh water and non-toxic materials.
Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity helps us navigate the changing energy landscape
WHO WE ARE
Haafiz Hasham obtained a business Master’s in Quality Management from Robert Gordon University. He joined the energy industry in 2011 and before joining the LiEP team he spent almost six years at Cenovus Energy Inc. where he held multiple positions in their Energy Asset Management department. Haafiz also held multiple positions at Southern Alberta’s Institute of Technology (SAIT) School of Energy, where he developed and delivered courses. Haafiz also served on the Board of Directors for the Centre for Energy Asset Management Studies from 2013-2017. During his time as a director he sat on multiple committee’s focused on education development, stakeholder engagement and identifying future trends in the energy industry. Currently, Haafiz serving as a Board Member for the Canadian Lithium Association.
Chief Technology Officer
Michael is a PhD candidate in Chemical Engineering interested in the design of novel interdisciplinary techniques which integrate the extraction and transformation of resources into value-added products. He has experience in process design/operation, reservoir geochemistry and water treatment supporting a polymer production plant at Nova Chemicals and a SAGD Pilot Plant with Laricina Energy Ltd. He holds 5 patents with more in development
There is a gap between current lithium supply potential and future lithium demand needed for electric vehicles and mobile energy storage. LiEP Energy was founded in 2017 by a team with knowledge from energy the sector to tackle this problem.
We have over 60 years of experience using new technology to unlock conventional and unconventional resources and now we plan to do the same for lithium.

Ned’s innovative vision led to the creation of LiEP Energy in 2017. Ned has over 40 years of experience in the energy industry. His expertise has been demonstrated in significant roles in large scale merger and acquisition deals cumulatively exceeding $1 billion in value. In December of 2005, as General Manager, Ned sold Kaiser Energy for $485 million. In 2006 Kaiser Exploration was formed, which Ned managed from inception until 2017 Ned holds a Master of Science in Geology and Geophysics from the University of Calgary and a Bachelor of Science in Geology (Honours) from Guilford College.
Laura has a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering degree from McGill University. Before joining LiEP she spent 10 years working for Shell where she spent 5 years evaluating unconventional gas and light oil plays and developing pilots to test new completion technology and improve production. She spent a year in Houston supporting the Executive Vice President of Shell Oil as a business analyst – evaluating asset performance and working with the investor relations team. Laura then moved to an operations focused role in Heavy oil in Canada, leading a team to reduce operating costs and steam usage while improving oil production at a SAGD field.
