BP gets Clean Energy's U.S. green gas business for $155 mln

BP agreed on Wednesday to buy Clean Energy Fuels Corp's biomethane business for $155 million, expanding its huge gas supply portfolio in the United States and showing its shift to less carbon-intensive projects.

BP will take over Clean Energy's existing and two new biomethane production sites as well as supply contracts to third parties, the companies said. As part of the deal, the U.S. company has also signed a long-term biomethane supply contract with BP.

Clean Energy captures biomethane gas emitted from landfill waste sites and then processes and purifies it to pump through pipelines. It is mainly used as a fuel for transport.

"Demand for renewable natural gas is growing quickly and BP is pleased to expand our supply capability in this area," Alan Haywood, chief executive officer of BP's supply and trading business, said.

Clean Energy sold 60 million gasoline gallon equivalents of the biomethane fuel last year to customers including logistics firm UPS and the City of Santa Monica's transit agency, it said.

BP said in a strategy update on Tuesday that it was exploring new investments in low-carbon forms of energy, a part of the industry in which it sees significant future business potential.
