SAN ANTONIO – December 6, 2021 – Elysian Carbon Management (“Elysian”) today announced it has secured an initial capital commitment of $350 million from EnCap Flatrock Midstream (“EFM”). Elysian provides integrated end-to-end carbon capture and storage (“CCS”) solutions to owners of industrial and power facilities seeking to transition to low carbon products and address environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) goals through the reduction of emissions.
Elysian is led by a team of CCS industry veterans: Chief Executive Officer Bret Logue, Chief Commercial Officer Keith Tracy, Chief Financial Officer Michael Pepe, Chief Strategy Officer Michael Schwartz and Senior Vice President David Watson. They have more than 50 years of collective experience in CCS and over 150 years in the energy sector.
“We are excited to partner with EnCap Flatrock Midstream as we focus on developing, building and operating carbon storage sites, affiliated capture facilities and the infrastructure required to connect emissions sources to geologic storage,” CEO Bret Logue said. “EFM’s unique experience in providing venture capital to the midstream sector, plus the team’s relationships and expertise in asset development and management makes the firm the perfect partner for Elysian.”
“Elysian is at the forefront of developing projects necessary to support carbon reduction goals across North America,” said EFM Managing Partner David J. Kurtz, who is also a member of the Elysian board of directors. “Few independent teams in this nascent sector have a comparable depth and breadth of the technical, financial and operational experience needed to bring CCS projects to fruition.”
