Oil & Gas Producer Finds Optimal Carbon Credits through AEGIS


After working to reduce Scope 1 emissions associated with its production activities, an oil & gas producer sought to utilize voluntary carbon credits to reduce its remaining emissions footprint. The oil & gas producer approached a project developer to assess available carbon credits and available related pricing.

The project developer had an appropriate project with credits ready to sell. The oil & gas producer had purchased similar credits a year earlier for less than $1.00 per ton; however, with a significant run-up in prices, the credits were offered for $7.00 per ton.

Not comfortable with the pricing, the oil & gas producer reached out to AEGIS for assistance.


The oil & gas producer was able to procure similar carbon credits at less than $3.50 per ton – a savings of over 50%. The carbon credits were promptly retired and used to offset emissions and deliver on Board and investor goals.

Because AEGIS is an independent advisor with no inventory of projects nor credits of its own, the counsel was not compromised by a conflict of interest. The only goal of casting a broader net was to find appropriate carbon offsets to meet the oil & gas producer’s goals at the best available price.
