Climate Transformed Ventures (CTV) is a methane infrastructure and origination platform company that leverages government funding and private capital to cap orphaned oil wells across the United States and Canada.

An orphaned oil well has no solvent owner of record, leaving the responsibility of capping in the hands of state and federal governments.

The EPA estimates that there are up to 3.7 million orphaned wells in North America, with the estimated cost to cap them ranging from $200bn- $300bn.

There is only $4.7bn allocated by the US Federal Government under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA).

This is the first phase of a multi-decade solution that will require the extensive deployment of private capital

Clean Baseload Power: Opportunities for Nuclear Energy

We discuss the current state of nuclear energy in the United States (a complicated way to boil water), what the future holds in terms of innovation, public policy, and the priorities of the Office of Nuclear Energy, including small modular reactors, advanced Gen IV reactors, new chemical processes, clean water, flexible electricity generation, hydrogen production, and other industrial applications. We chat about the implication of the array of subsidies from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the Inflation Reduction Act and how they will underpin tens of billions of dollars of capex in the next decade.
