Reconciliation Energy Transition Inc. Announces Joint Development Agreement with Sumitomo Corporation Group

Canada NewsWire

CALGARY, AB and NEW YORK, May 23, 2024 /CNW/ - Reconciliation Energy Transition Inc. ("RETI" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has entered into a Joint Development Agreement (the "JDA") with Sumitomo Corporation, a leading global trading company based in Tokyo, Japan, through its subsidiary Ammolite Carbon Sequestration (collectively "Sumitomo Corporation Group").

Pursuant to the JDA, RETI and Sumitomo Corporation Group have finalized the terms under which Sumitomo Corporation Group will acquire a significant equity interest in the RETI East Calgary Region Carbon Transportation and Sequestration Hub project ("CTS Hub"). The CTS Hub is an open access CO2 sequestration-as-a-service solution for industrial emitters within the greater Calgary region and beyond with potential storage capacity of up to 10 million tonnes per annum.

The CTS Hub plans to construct compression capacity, a CO2 pipeline network, and injection and monitoring wells to facilitate the permanent sequestration of CO2 in deep saline aquifers east of Calgary. The parties intend to progress the FEED study immediately, targeting the first carbon sequestration operations in 2026.

The RETI East Calgary Region Transportation & Sequestration Hub LP, a Limited Partnership established for the purpose of conducting project related activities, is also a party to the agreement.

Appointment of RBC Capital Markets

RETI is also pleased to announce the appointment of RBC Capital Markets as lead placement agent and financial advisor in respect to the financing of the Company's portfolio of projects, including the CTS Hub and the Calgary Region Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) Facility.  The mandate includes the engagement of RBC as exclusive financial advisor to render investment banking services for assistance in the sourcing, assessment, negotiation, valuation, documentation and/or closing of one or more long-term commercial agreements relating to the projects, including offtake and feedstock arrangements.

Commenting on the appointment of RBC Capital Markets, Stephen Mason, Chairman & CEO, stated, "RETI's vision resonates with the philosophy at RBC – that of developing sustainable, forward-looking projects while acknowledging the importance of Indigenous partnerships in Canada's energy transition landscape. As we continue and invest in low-carbon energy transition projects, the guidance and expertise of RBC will be instrumental."

As RETI advances, it remains steadfast in its commitment to generating shareholder value, improving corporate ESG standards, and shaping the future of renewable energy in Canada. With the support of strategic partners like Sumitomo and RBC Capital Markets, RETI stands poised to deliver viable projects in the low-carbon energy transition economy.
