BP Has Acquired Archaea Energy for $4.1 Billion Developing Its bioenergy business02/09/2023
BP acquired renewable natural gas (RNG) provider Archaea Energy Inc. for $4.1 billion on December 28, marking a milestone in the growth of BP’s strategic bioenergy business.
The acquisition, announced in October, was finalized following BP’s completion of regulatory requirements and Archaea obtaining shareholder approval.
BP sees a golden opportunity to extend its bioenergy business by bringing Archaea fully into the company. Based in Houston, Archaea Energy operates 50 RNG and landfill gas-to-energy facilities in the U.S. and is anticipated providing a quick 50% rise to BP’s biogas supply volumes, BP said in October.
In October, BP announced it had agreed to purchase Archaea, subject to regulatory and Archaea shareholder approval. Having received those approvals and with the transaction complete, Archaea broadens BP’s presence in the US biogas industry, improving its ability to support customers’ decarbonization aims and progressing its goal to decrease the average lifecycle carbon intensity of the energy products it sells.
Bioenergy is one of the most significant strategic transition growth engines that BP is going to proliferate through this decade. BP anticipates investment into its transition growth businesses to achieve more than 40% of its total annual capital expenditure by 2025, targeting to increase this to about 50% by 2030.
Gas & low carbon energy (G&LCE) integrates BP’s existing natural gas capabilities with significant growth in low and zero-carbon businesses and markets. The company is investing in and building renewable energy capacity of 20 gigawatts by 2025 and 50 gigawatts by 2030. It grows up its integrated gas portfolio, including equity gas, LNG, and merchant portfolio, and further develops its bioenergy offer solutions for aviation, marine, and heavy-duty transportation, creating a distinctive position in hydrogen and CCUS, including a 10% market share of hydrogen in core markets.
Archaea Energy is one of the largest renewable natural gas producers in the U.S., with an industry-leading RNG platform and expertise in developing, constructing, and operating RNG facilities to capture waste emissions and convert them into low-carbon fuel.
