Gas2Wire+CarbonCapture projects accelerate energy transition
Our management team has wide experience in the oil and gas sector, in developing projects and in applying risk management to optimise investor returns. We have a comprehensive, world-wide database of projects which could be developed or re-developed as ‘gas2wire+carboncapture’ opportunities, de-risked and potentially financeable. The population of projects includes some which are currently operating but moving to the end of their field life, some already stranded and some which are marginal but where the economics can be significantly improved.
De-risking projects is a cornerstone of our expertise. Investors and asset owners can have the confidence that such projects can be implemented and operated profitably. Furthermore, each project will be developed and managed by an integrated (Consortium) team with extensive experience of the sector, project engineering and risk management supported by established alliances with recognised capability to operate and provide the services required. The Consortium can be supplemented by other specialist companies as required
