XMST lines of business

Stranded gas

1 | Stranded gas: convert stranded gas to energy and profit through Bitcoin mining.

Gas without market access or being flared unnecessarily can deliver an economic return through technology that significantly reduces GHG and the need for flaring permits. We are looking for at least 240 mcf/d per project.

GHG technology

2 | Low Carbon Technology: investment in greenhouse gas reduction technology businesses.

We invest in Low Carbon Technology companies with product-market fit, first revenues and are seeking scale-up capital.

Carbon  credits

3 | Carbon credits: produce carbon credits by identifying, remediating, and plugging gas wells that are emitting methane to the atmosphere.

Our asset retirement program will remove plugging and abandonment liability of orphaned wells economically.
