HOUSTON, Jan. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Petróleos Internacionales del Caribe (“PIC”) and its operating division in Mexico Petróleos Internacionales del Caribe Inc., Surcusal México (“PICMEX”) and SeaOne Holdings, LLC (SeaOne™) jointly announced today their agreement to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) in principle granting PIC an exclusive license to commercialize SeaOne’s patented Compressed Gas Liquids (CGL™) technology, systems and designs throughout the Americas’ and its 300 nautical mile Exclusive Economic Zone (“EEZ”). PIC’s first use of the license will be fuels supply, terminals, infrastructure, and power projects in México.
Since 2017 PIC evaluated advanced solvation and storage technologies and delivery systems pioneered by SeaOne which meet the ever-changing gas market conditions. PIC’s due diligence process placed a strong emphasis on environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) aspects in addition to total cost. After careful research carried out with SeaOne, PIC selected the CGL technology as the optimal means of delivering natural gas from the United States to its projects in México.
SeaOne’s patented CGL technology is a revolutionary means of transporting and delivering natural gas and natural gas liquids in one liquid gas cargo at moderate, non-cryogenic temperatures. As CGL is stored at a modest pressure and temperature, the boiloff and venting issues associated with Liquefied Natural Gas (“LNG”) does not occur in the CGL containment system while in transit or in storage. Thus, the carbon footprint of the entire value chain from solvation through delivery to the customer is minimized compared to other methods of transporting and delivery of natural gas.
The SeaOne intellectual property covered by the license is supported by 9 core U.S. patents, with supporting engineering and designs. The core CGL patents are the basis of 84 international patents, and 72 global trademarks that cover the composition of CGL (natural gas and natural gas liquids in a solvated solution) and methods for producing, storage, loading and unloading cargo containment systems in the CGLC, and associated onshore and offshore production and receiving terminals. The patents, designs and systems also include various transportation solutions that have been developed by SeaOne.
“The PIC-SeaOne partnership is a powerful combination to supply fuel for our power plants and our customers in Mexico and throughout The Americas,” said Michael Hood, Chairman and CEO of PIC. “Together, utilizing SeaOne’s proprietary systems, PIC will execute industry leading technology solutions to help address the fuel supply and electricity needs of Mexico’s citizens, businesses, and government.” SeaOne’s technical solutions are robust and cutting edge like no other, and will exceed the single most important part of our future “Emissions and Reductions”, of carbon footprints throughout the globe.
“We are very enthusiastic about partnering with PIC,” SeaOne’s Chairman and CEO, Forrest Hoglund, said. “CGL increases access to affordable, lower emission fuels. These projects will provide Mexico, and other countries in Central and South America, and the Americas with affordable fuels and power, as well as significant carbon emissions reductions, a key component in achieving sustainability and balanced ESG goals.”
