Solving the dual challenge of meeting energy demand and rapidly reducing emissions
WE ARE CARBON INFRASTRUCTURE PARTNERS

OUR THESIS

Founded in 2020, Carbon Infrastructure Partners is an investment management firm on a mission to solve the dual challenge of meeting global energy needs and rapidly reducing carbon emissions. We are a Calgary, Alberta and San Francisco Bay Area based firm focused on investments that measurably reduce emissions and target attractive risk-adjusted returns by leveraging incentives for Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS). Members of our team collectively have experience raising and investing $1.3 billion CAD for oil & gas private equity projects since 2003.

Power Density

Hydrocarbons contain the power density to meet growing energy demands and drive the global economy.

Earth Based

Carbon removed from earth must be returned to the earth to balance the carbon and climate books.

Zero Emission Products

CCS can be used to produce zero emission products and fuels such as liquid hydrogen.

Scalable Application

CCUS solutions can be deployed across industries at existing sources responsible for 77% of US emissions.

Gigaton Solution

CCUS provides a gigaton solution to eliminating emissions.

Today

The carbon clock is ticking – limiting global temperature rise requires action today.

WHY CARBON CAPTURE?

Our view is that the case for rapid and profound decarbonization has never been more obvious or more urgent. The consequences of unrestricted greenhouse gas emissions continue to manifest as the atmospheric concentration of CO2 exceeds 415 parts per million (ppm) and the atmospheric load of CO2 approaches 1 trillion tons1. Carbon emissions continue to rise, despite significant progress on efficiency and clean energy generation, especially in wind and solar.

The fundamental axiom of a successful energy transition and climate counterstrike: managing carbon emissions requires actually managing carbon emissions.

We are among those who believe that Carbon capture and storage (CCS) must play a central role in meeting climate change targets, delivering low carbon heat and power, decarbonizing industry and facilitating the net removal of CO2 from the atmosphere and that that the versatility of carbon capture and the vast and untapped carbon storage capacity of the geosphere allows CCS to immediately play a key role in eliminating and managing emissions today.

PRACTICAL

CCS provides a tested option for reducing emissions from industrial processes and high-temperature heat and has the capability to drive deep decarbonization in the power sector.

PROVEN

The core technology is mature: Industrial-scale CO2 capture has operated successfully since 1938, and geological storage of CO2 since 1972.

INTEGRATIVE

CCS technology works on existing stock and new facilities: Carbon capture has already retrofitted electricity generation, fertilizer, ethanol, hydrogen and other large facilities.

EQUIPPED

CCS operations in certain cases can utilize existing infrastructure and supply chains to lower marginal cost and system cost.

ESTABLISHED

Existing bi-partisan policy support in the U.S. provides financial incentive for investment in qualifying CO2 capture and storage.

WHAT THE WORLD IS SAYING

  • DR. FATIH BIROL | EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR INTERNATIONAL ENERGY AGENCY

    “…CCUS is the only group of technologies that contributes both to reducing emissions in key sectors directly and to removing CO2 to balance emissions that cannot be avoided. This is a critical part of reaching ‘net’ zero targets”

  • GOLDMAN SACHS EQUITY RESEARCH, CARBONOMICS REPORT

    “The role of sequestration is a critical piece of the puzzle in solving the climate change challenge and leading the world to net zero carbon.”

  • OCCIDENTAL CEO, VICKI HOLLUB

    "We cannot achieve global climate targets on carbon neutrality without large-scale implementation of CCUS."

  • COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY’S CENTRE ON GLOBAL ENERGY POLICY (CGEP) AND THE GLOBAL CCS INSTITUTE

    "Managing carbon emissions requires actually managing carbon emissions."




    COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY’S CENTRE ON GLOBAL ENERGY POLICY (CGEP) AND THE GLOBAL CCS INSTITUTE
  • ATLANTIC COUNCIL

    "With mounting pressure to deliver on climate ambition and the daunting prognosis elucidated in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 1.5°C Report, the need to deploy carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies has become increasingly more urgent."

    ATLANTIC COUNCIL
  • CLEAN AIR TASK FORCE

    "Carbon Capture can keep millions of tonnes of CO2 emitted from these sources out of the atmosphere, making it a critical tool in the global climate solution toolbox. The individual technologies that comprise carbon capture have been commercially available for many decades, but are only now being harnessed to address global warming."

  • NATURAL RESOURCE DEFENSE COUNCIL

    "That’s why, along with promoting clean energy and efficiency and shifting away from fossil fuels, NRDC has long supported policies to advance a proven technology called Carbon Capture & Storage."

INVESTMENT FOCUS

Carbon Infrastructure Partners is well positioned as an asset manager championing real asset investments that seek to measurably reduce emissions through Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage.

GEOLOGICAL STORAGE
  • Geologic storage of CO2 is a commercial solution for a variety of energy and industrial emitters
  • High concentration emission sources co-located with saline formations are economic under 45Q tax incentive
BLUE HYDROGEN
  • Hydrogen production with carbon capture and storage is a low carbon, scalable energy carrier solution, for heavy freight transportation and industrial needs
  • California Low Carbon Fuel Standard provides a robust economic signal for Blue hydrogen
EOR CO2 STORAGE
  • Opportunistic private capital to acquire certified pore space for CO2 storage and enhanced oil recovery in strategically located regions
  • 45Q tax credit incentive for CO2 capture creates opportunities for EOR projects in the Mid Continent
NEGATIVE EMISSIONS TECHNOLOGIES (NETs)
  • NETs remove carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere or enhance natural carbon sinks to reduce atmospheric CO2 from previous emissions
  • NETs include Direct Air Capture (DAC) and Bio-Energy and Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS)
