At its inception, HL Acquisitions had identified small-scale LNG logistics as one of "the places to be" over the next decade. We believed, and continue to believe, that finding creative solutions to the challenge of delivering cheaper and cleaner forms of energy to areas of stranded demand represents a compelling investment opportunity. However, the global health crisis coupled with the dislocation caused by the OPEC price war has, in the immediate term, all but eliminated the economic incentive for end-users to switch from petroleum-based fuels to LNG.
When we set out two years ago, we recognized the need for a transition of the global energy system. We believed that creatively approaching the distribution of LNG to accelerate its adoption as the bridge fuel to a renewable energy future would be one of many sources of investment opportunity that would spring from that transition. While we are still bullish on the long term prospects of small-scale LNG logistics, the acceptance of the idea that both the energy and industrial sectors must reduce their carbon footprint has occurred faster than anticipated. This has created a new universe of investment opportunities for HL Acquisitions in businesses which are poised to accelerate the transition to a decarbonized future.
We seek to be an early player in this space, taking advantage of unprecedented political and economic tailwinds to capture the excess returns associated with greenfield opportunities that are beginning to emerge as new sources of energy become increasingly commercially viable.
