2022 has been a transformational year for Howard Energy Partners. We celebrated our 11-year anniversary, expanded our relationship with AIMCo, had stellar operating performance and announced some exciting new projects. Two of the biggest acknowledgements we received this year were being named a Top Workplace in San Antonio for the 10th year in a row and being given a 5-star rating by GRESB, a global industry benchmark in sustainability.

The mission of Howard Energy Partners is to deliver positive energy. We are passionate about this purpose. The energy we deliver not only enables us to provide long-term value to our stakeholders, we know it is essential to alleviating poverty and improving human life. Further, as we see energy supplies used as leverage in international conflicts, we know that the energy security we help provide is a force for peace and stability across the world. Our business helps power every other business and we take great pride in that.

Nevertheless, we take seriously our obligation to provide that energy in the most responsible way possible. We are proud of the fact that the natural gas we gather and process, which makes up more than 60% of our EBITDA, has played a significant role over the last decade in lowering carbon emissions by replacing coal and other more carbon-intensive fuels. The United States’ shift to natural gas from coal has done more than anything else to lower the country’s CO2 emissions, almost 25% since 2005. Our Nueva Era Pipeline in Mexico displaces somewhere between 8 – 11 million tonnes per year of CO2 that would have otherwise been produced from the burning of fuel oil or coal.

Yet, because we are committed to continuing to deliver the energy that people need to flourish, we are committed to do more. In 2023, 10% of our EBITDA will come from our Port Arthur Renewable Diesel facility, which will produce 470 million gallons per year of renewable diesel with 80% less CO2 emissions than traditional diesel. An additional 10% of our EBITDA now comes from the sale of hydrogen and the decarbonization of the six Corpus Christi refineries off-gas streams. Starting in April 2023, the CO2 emissions associated with Javelina’s hydrogen production will be captured, utilized, and transformed into a net zero emissions electro-fuel, making it among the first “clean hydrogen” production facilities along the U.S. Gulf Coast. And our partnership with the Port of Corpus Christi and Talos Energy in the Coastal Bend Carbon Management Partnership represents one of the first carbon capture and sequestration projects at-scale in the region, taking advantage of Javelina’s historic role as an aggregator of emissions in the Corpus Christi market.

We are more than just an energy company; we are an integral part of an industry that helps power every other industry.  As we continue to grow, we will strive to preserve this meaningful endeavor, staying true to our purpose and core values along the way.

I invite you to look through our website and explore our values located on the Purpose page and to learn more about what inspires our approach to delivering positive energy on the Resources page.

Thank you,

Mike Howard
