Streamline Innovations Announces Sustainability-Linked Loan Financing with Riverstone Credit Partners to Fund Growth and Meet Increasing Demand
- Proceeds will be used to address growing demand for Streamline’s solutions and fund the construction of new Valkyrie™ hydrogen sulfide (H2S) treatment plants for new customers
- New plants are contracted under long-term leases and significantly increase the size of Streamline’s rental fleet of treatment plants
- In addition to eliminating poisonous H2S gas, the new Valkyrie plants will have the combined capacity to reduce toxic sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions by an estimated 5 million pounds annually by eliminating routine flaring
- Valkyrie™ plants help customers improve environmental performance and achieve their ESG goals
SAN ANTONIO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Streamline Innovations, Inc. (“Streamline”), the leader in environmentally-advanced treatment solutions for hydrogen sulfide (H2S), announced today that it closed on a Senior Secured Term Loan (the “Financing”) on November 23, 2021. The Financing is a Delayed Draw Term Loan and is structured as a Sustainability-Linked Loan to facilitate and support environmentally sustainable economic activity and growth.
Proceeds from the Financing will be used to construct Valkyrie plants for treating natural gas production streams contaminated with toxic and corrosive H2S. The plants will be built for new Streamline customers in the energy sector and are expected to be placed into service during the first half of 2022.
The Financing is being provided by Riverstone Credit Partners, LLC, a dedicated credit investment platform focused on energy, power, decarbonization, and infrastructure managed by Riverstone Holdings LLC (“Riverstone”).
Streamline’s patented chemistry and processes convert toxic H2S into water and pure elemental sulfur, which can be cleanly disposed of or used as fertilizer for agricultural purposes, unlike many other solutions which result in hazardous or toxic byproducts that require special handling. The result is an environmental performance solution that allows companies to achieve sustainability objectives in a cost-efficient manner.
“Demand for our environmentally-forward solutions is accelerating rapidly, driving our need to secure additional financial resources,” said Chip Van Os, Chief Financial Officer. “We are excited to partner with Riverstone on this financing, which comes at the perfect time. Energy companies are committed to reducing their environmental footprint by seeking clean solutions to safely remove H2S from production streams and eliminate the flaring of toxic sour gas, which in turn eliminates SO2 emissions. Our ability to provide green, innovative solutions that deliver attractive economics to our customers uniquely positions us to be a leader in addressing H2S challenges in all of the markets we serve.”
Chris Abbate, a Partner at Riverstone, said, “We are pleased to partner with Streamline to expand their Valkyrie treatment plant footprint. Streamline has a demonstrated track record of helping its customers across multiple end markets improve environmental performance, reduce emissions and achieve ESG goals.”
