Purchase agreements are typically used to help the selling company acquire financing for future construction, extension or new equipment projects by promising future revenue and proving existing demand for the goods. Johnston said entering into the purchase agreements would improve the project`s solvency and increase its chances of third-party financing. „Equity investors who want to invest their money in the project want to see core returns directly related to the purchase agreements,“ he told GHG Monitor this week. „If you invest in the project, do it based on a return on your investment, and the basis for that is the contracts we have.“ Johnston said Leucadia is currently in talks with potential strategic investors. In addition to third-party funding, Leucadia`s board of directors must also make a final investment decision on the project before it can proceed with construction, with which the company is expected to begin next year, he added. Most acceptance agreements contain force majeure clauses. These clauses allow the buyer or seller to terminate the contract in the event of the occurrence of certain events that are beyond the control of one of the parties and when one of the other parties imposes unnecessary difficulties. Force majeure clauses often offer protection against the negative effects of certain natural acts such as floods or forest fires. A purchase agreement is an agreement between a producer and a buyer to buy or sell some of the producer`s future products. A purchase contract is normally negotiated before the construction of a production plant – such as a mine or plant – to secure a market for future production. The purchase contract plays an important role for the producer. If lenders can see that the company has customers and customers before production begins, they are more likely to authorize the renewal of a loan or loan. Thus, purchase agreements facilitate the financing of the construction of a facility.
Summit Power Group, LLC and Blue Strategies, LLC have signed a 15-year CO2 purchase agreement with whiting Petroleum Corporation for a portion of the CO2, which is isolated from Summit`s Texas Clean Energy Project (TCEP), a carbon capture pollygene coal gasification project developed in Penwell, Texas, outside Odessa. Denbury Resources will receive all of the CO2 released each year as part of the Lake Charles Clean Energy project in Louisiana, as announced earlier this week by a subsidiary of Leucadia Energy. Lake Charles Clean Energy LLC (LCCE) has signed a long-term purchase agreement with Denbury Onshore LLC for all 4.5 million tonnes of CO2 produced annually at the $2.5 billion industrial chemistry plant. The site will eventually be connected to Denbury`s existing 320-mile green pipeline, which will transport CO2 to depleted oil fields in the region to improve oil development, according to LCCE. „Denbury Onshore and its related companies are pleased that Lake Charles Clean Energy has reached another important milestone in the development of this first domestic project of its kind,“ Phil Rykhoek, president and CEO of Denbury Resources, said in a statement. „The CO2 from the facility would complement and use our other SOURCES OF CO2 on the Gulf Coast to drive the growth of our EOR plants on the Gulf Coast.“ In addition to providing a guaranteed market and a guaranteed source of income for its product, a purchase agreement allows the manufacturer/seller to guarantee a minimum profit for its investment.. . .
