Alpine Summit seeks to follow best practices to minimize the environmental impact of its operations, including:
Focus on water efficiency: utilize recycled water for well completion and workover operations to minimize use of fresh water
Methane and hydrocarbon gases recapture: use vapor recovery systems to reduce methane and other hydrocarbon gases emissions at its production facilities
Minimizing inactive wells, a major source of methane off-gasses
The Company also seeks innovative solutions to steward environmental resources, including use of solar powered lights on our locations during drilling and completion operations, using smaller operational location areas to minimize disturbance and restoring ground cover through planting grass on construction and operation areas.
Further, in order to proactively address industry-wide carbon/methane emissions concerns, Alpine Summit, through its subsidiary Alpine CapH4, is seeking sustainable ways to mitigate legacy sources of pollution through abandoned-well capping. Alpine CapH4 is funding important emissions abatement work that we expect to generate meaningful amounts of carbon offsets.
Alpine Summit announced on December 2, 2021 the hiring of Alec Sheaff as Director, Carbon Markets and Offsets for Alpine CapH4. Prior to joining Alpine Summit, Alec ran the Eastern US Client Solutions Team for Resource Environmental Solutions ("RES"), a KKR & Co. portfolio company. RES is an ecological restoration company focused on stream and wetland mitigation banking projects. Before that, Alec spent over ten years in the renewable energy industry developing commercial and utility scale projects.
