Trace Midstream II, Backed by Quantum Energy Partners, Formed to Pursue Carbon Capture and Sequestration Opportunities in North America

Trace Midstream II, Backed by Quantum Energy Partners, Formed to Pursue Carbon Capture and Sequestration Opportunities in North America Quantum Energy Partners to commit $400 million to TraceTrace II and its affiliates will focus on the development of carbon capture and sequestration assets as well as other midstream infrastructure across North AmericaCompany appoints tenured executive David Dell'Osso as Chief Operating Officer HOUSTON, Sep. 27 /BusinessWire/ -- Trace Midstream ("Trace") announced today that it has secured an equity commitment of $400 million from Quantum Energy Partners to form Trace Midstream Partners II, LLC, and its affiliate, Trace Carbon Solutions, LLC (collectively, "Trace II" or the "Company"). Headquartered in Houston, Texas, the Company will be focused on developing carbon capture and sequestration ("CCS") assets and supporting midstream infrastructure across North America. CCS is the process of capturing CO2 emissions and converting the CO2 into a fluid form that can be safely transported and sequestered underground permanently. CCS reduces the amount of CO2 that would have entered the atmosphere otherwise and has been recognized as a critical strategy in the global initiative to combat climate change. In support of its CCS focus, Trace II has appointed industry veteran David Dell'Osso as its Chief Operating Officer. David has extensive subsurface expertise as well as a proven track record in the development and operations of large-scale upstream assets and midstream infrastructure. Prior to Trace II, David served as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Parsley Energy, a leading public E&P company, until its merger with Pioneer Natural Resources (NYSE:PXD). Prior to Parsley, David spent 13 years with Southwestern Energy Company (NYSE:SWN), where he most recently served as Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Northeast Appalachia Division. "We are excited to continue our partnership with Quantum as we pursue the development of CCS assets and the midstream infrastructure required to service these projects," said Josh Weber, CEO of Trace II. "With the addition of David and a dedicated subsurface team, we have assembled the in-house expertise required to develop, construct, and operate projects across the CCS value chain. We look forward to developing and commercializing projects that allow our customers to achieve their decarbonization goals." "The Trace team has a proven track record and history of success in both the traditional midstream and upstream space. Our equity commitment demonstrates our continued confidence in the Trace organization and their project development capabilities," said Blake Webster, Managing Director of Quantum Energy Partners. "We're excited about the opportunity across the CCS value chain and believe that the Trace team is well positioned to become a leading developer and operator of CCS assets." About Trace Midstream Trace was formed in 2017 with an initial $200 million equity commitment from Quantum Energy Partners with a focus on developing midstream infrastructure across North America. The formation of Trace II follows the recent successful sale of Trace's Haynesville midstream assets to Williams (NYSE:WMB) in April 2022 for $950 million and Trace's Mid-Continent assets to Energy Transfer (NYSE:ET) in September 2022 for $485 million. Trace II is actively pursuing the development of CCS assets and supporting midstream infrastructure across North America. For more information visit www.tracemidstream.com. About Quantum Energy Partners Founded in 1998, Quantum Energy Partners is a leading provider of private equity capital to the global energy industry, having managed together with its affiliates more than $19 billion in equity commitments since inception.

Chevron and MOECO to Collaborate on Advanced Geothermal Technology

Chevron and MOECO to Collaborate on Advanced Geothermal Technology Agreement could help unlock Japan's significant geothermal potential TOKYO, Sep. 25 /BusinessWire/ -- Chevron New Energies International Pte, Ltd. (Chevron), and Mitsui Oil Exploration Co., Ltd (MOECO) today announced the signing of a Joint Collaboration Agreement to explore the technical and commercial feasibility of advanced geothermal power generation in Japan. Building on Chevron and MOECO's long-standing relationship, the new collaboration will study geothermal resource potential across Japan and will evaluate the effectiveness of Advanced Closed Loop (ACL) technology for a future joint pilot project in Japan. Both companies may also assess potential collaboration for advanced geothermal technology opportunities using ACL globally. Unlike conventional geothermal projects, which use traditional steam turbines requiring high temperatures often found in concentrated locations limited by geological characteristics, ACL can potentially enable access to geothermal resources at a wider range of temperatures and geologies through the application of alternative technology above and below the surface. "Chevron and MOECO share a goal of delivering lower carbon energy solutions, while meeting the need for reliable, affordable energy," said Barbara Harrison, vice president of Offsets & Emerging, Chevron New Energies. "This collaboration provides an opportunity for Chevron to combine its subsurface capabilities and technologies with MOECO's intimate knowledge of Japan's geothermal potential resource geology and its long history of responsible resource development. The joint team will have the opportunity to test emerging geothermal technology in a real world setting with significant scaling up potential." "MOECO entered the geothermal business in 2012 and has been expanding its geothermal portfolio since then. In parallel with conventional geothermal, we have been studying ACL technology for many years and we believe this collaboration with Chevron utilizing ACL technology could unlock tremendous geothermal resources in Japan," said Hirotaka Hamamoto, CEO of MOECO. "This joint collaboration with Chevron, who has been a valued partner of MOECO for several decades in the energy industry, is intended to open a new chapter in the geothermal industry as MOECO aims to continue contributing to an environmentally sustainable world as a member of the Mitsui & Co.'s group companies." About Chevron Chevron (NYSE:CVX) is one of the world's leading integrated energy companies. We believe affordable, reliable, and ever-cleaner energy is essential to achieving a more prosperous and sustainable world. Chevron produces crude oil and natural gas; manufactures transportation fuels, lubricants, petrochemicals and additives; and develops technologies that enhance our business and the industry. We are focused on lowering the carbon intensity in our operations and growing lower carbon businesses along with our traditional business lines. More information about Chevron is available at www.chevron.com. About MOECO MOECO celebrated its milestone 50th anniversary in 2019. MOECO has been continually devoted to the exploration, development and production of energy resources globally building from the development of our gas projects in offshore Thailand. MOECO now embraces the challenge that comes with the world entering into a new era where society's demands for energy are rapidly changing. We renew our commitment towards delivering energy resources that will strive to meet the demands of a changing society through our global expansion including the continued development of our geothermal business as one of the core group companies of Mitsui & Co.'s energy business value chain.

Tellurian updates financing process for Driftwood LNG

Tellurian updates financing process for Driftwood LNG HOUSTON, Sep. 23 /BusinessWire/ -- Tellurian Inc. (Tellurian) (NYSE American:TELL) announced today that it has updated its Driftwood LNG financing strategy to prioritize securing equity partners. Part of this strategy includes introducing flexibility in its liquefied natural gas portfolio with the termination of two current sales and purchase agreements. President and CEO Octávio Simões said, "The potential corporate and strategic partners we are seeking may want liquefied natural gas (LNG) volumes that they can sell globally and now we have some capacity to offer that option. We have made good progress on our construction plan and will continue funding that with our cash and operating cash flow." Simões added, "What has not changed for Tellurian is that we are an operating natural gas producer with revenue from our gas sales. Last quarter we produced nine billion cubic feet of natural gas and had over $61 million in sales, and since then we have closed the EnSight acquisition. Currently we have 11 natural gas wells in various stages of completion and therefore expect a significant increase in production and sales next quarter. In addition, we will add to our value when our fully permitted Driftwood LNG project is completed, and we can reach the global markets with LNG sales at global prices." About Tellurian Inc. Tellurian intends to create value for shareholders by building a low-cost, global natural gas business, profitably delivering natural gas to customers worldwide. Tellurian is developing a portfolio of natural gas production, LNG marketing and trading, and infrastructure that includes an ~ 27.6 mtpa LNG export facility and an associated pipeline.

Quarter Highlights: Net income and earnings per common unit (basic and diluted) of $11.1 million and $0.22, respectively;Adjusted Net Income(1) of $9.1 million and Adjusted Earnings(1) per common unit (basic and diluted) of $0.17;Adjusted EBITDA(1) $22.9 million;100% fleet utilization(2);Declared and paid cash distribution of $0.5625 per unit on its Series A Preferred Units (NYSE: "DLNG PR A") for the period from February 12, 2022 to May 11, 2022 and $0.546875 per unit on the Series B Preferred Units (NYSE: "DLNG PR B") for the period from February 22, 2022 to May 21, 2022; and Completed the scheduled dry-dock of the Clean Energy including ballast water treatment equipment in accordance with current regulations. Subsequent Events: Declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.5625 on the Partnership's Series A Preferred Units for the period from May 12, 2022 to August 11, 2022, which was paid on August 12, 2022 to all preferred Series A unit holders of record as of August 5, 2022;Declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.546875 on the Partnership's Series B Preferred Units for the period from May 22, 2022 to August 21, 2022, which was paid on August 22, 2022 to all preferred Series B unit holders of record as of August 15, 2022; andCompleted the scheduled dry-docks of the Amur River and the OB River, including ballast water treatment equipment in accordance with current regulations. (1) Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA are not recognized measures under U.S. GAAP. Please refer to Appendix B of this press release for the definitions and reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP and other related information.(2) Please refer to Appendix B. CEO Commentary: We are pleased to report the results for the three- and six-months period ended June 30, 2022. All six LNG carriers in our fleet are operating under their respective long-term charters with international gas producers with an average remaining contract term of 6.4 years. As of September 22, 2022, our estimated contracted revenue backlog1 2 was $0.95 billion. The earliest contracted re-delivery date for any of our six LNG carriers is in the third quarter of 2023 (for the Arctic Aurora), with the second earliest contracted re-delivery date in the first quarter of 2026 (for the Clean Energy), both subject to the terms of the applicable charter. For the second quarter of 2022, we reported Net Income of $11.1 million, earnings per common unit of $0.22, Adjusted Net Income of $9.1 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $22.9 million. While future results may vary, we are pleased to report 100% utilization for our fleet for the ninth quarter in a row. During the second quarter of 2022 and the subsequent period until to date we successfully completed the scheduled dry docks of the Clean Energy, the Amur River and the Ob River, including ballast water treatment equipment installation in all three vessels in accordance with current regulatory requirements. We are in a period of high demand for LNG shipping, which we believe will benefit the Partnership. We continue our strategy of using our cash flow generation to deleverage our balance sheet and reinforce our liquidity so as to build equity value. This, we believe, will enhance our ability to pursue future growth initiatives. ____________1 The Partnership calculates its estimated contracted revenue backlog by multiplying the contractual daily hire rate by the expected number of days committed under the contracts (assuming earliest delivery and redelivery and excluding options to extend), assuming full utilization. The actual amount of revenues earned and the actual periods during which revenues are earned may differ from the amounts and periods disclosed due to, for example, dry-docking and/or special survey downtime, maintenance projects, off-hire downtime and other factors that result in lower revenues than the Partnership's average contract backlog per day. 2 The $0.14 billion of the revenue backlog estimate relates to the estimated portion of the hire contained in certain time charter contracts with Yamal which represents the operating expenses of the respective vessels and is subject to yearly adjustments on the basis of the actual operating costs incurred within each year. The actual amount of revenues earned in respect of such variable hire rate may therefore differ from the amounts included in the revenue backlog estimate due to the yearly variations in the respective vessels' operating costs. Russian Sanctions Developments Due to the ongoing Russian conflicts with Ukraine, the United States ("U.S."), European Union ("E.U."), Canada and other Western countries and organizations have announced and enacted numerous sanctions against Russia to impose severe economic pressure on the Russian economy and government. As of today's date, and to the Partnership's knowledge: Current U.S. and E.U. sanctions regimes do not materially affect the business, operations or financial condition of the Partnership and the Partnership's counterparties are currently performing their obligations under their respective time charters in compliance with applicable U.S. and E.U. rules and regulations;Sanctions legislation in the E.U. continues to exclude LNG;The charters of the Amur River, the Ob River and the Clean Energy are effectively under the control of the German government for an indefinite period of time as of April 4th when Gazprom Germania (and all its subsidiaries), the indirect parent of Gazprom Marketing and Trading (GMT Singapore), was placed under the control of the German Government (Federal Network Agency) since Gazprom Germania operates critical energy infrastructure in Germany;Germany's Federal Network Agency has prolonged its fiduciary control of Gazprom Germania GmbH (renamed to SEFE Securing Energy for Europe GmbH) and its relevant subsidiaries, including Gazprom Marketing & Trading Singapore Pte Ltd (renamed to SEFE Marketing & Trading Singapore) for as long as necessary to guarantee the security of energy supply in Europe; andSanctions legislation has been changing and the Partnership continues to monitor such changes as applicable to the Partnership and its counterparties. The full impact of the commercial and economic consequences of the Russian conflict with Ukraine is uncertain at this time. The Partnership cannot provide any assurance that any further development in sanctions, or escalation of the Ukraine situation more generally, will not have a significant impact on its business, financial condition or results of operations. Please see the section of this report entitled "Forward Looking Statements". Financial Results Overview: (1) Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Earnings per common unit are not recognized measures under U.S. GAAP. Please refer to Appendix B of this press release for the definitions and reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Three Months Ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 Financial ResultsNet Income for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was $11.1 million as compared to a Net Income of $9.1 million for the corresponding period of 2021, which represents an increase of $2.0 million, or 22.0%. The increase in net income for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was mainly attributable to the increase in the gain on our interest rate swap transaction compared to the corresponding period of 2021, which was partly offset by an increase in the vessels dry-docking and special survey costs, attributable to the scheduled dry-docks of the Clean Energy and the Amur River, which commenced on March 16, 2022 and June 25, 2022, respectively. Adjusted Net Income for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was $9.1 million compared to $10.4 million for the corresponding period of 2021, which represents a net decrease of $1.3 million or 12.5%. This decrease is mainly attributable to the decrease in the vessels' revenue, as well as to the increase of interest and finance costs compared to the corresponding period of 2021. Voyage revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2022 were $33.4 million as compared to $33.9 million for the corresponding period of 2021, which represents a net decrease of $0.5 million or 1.5%, which is mainly attributable to the decrease in the revenue earning days for the three months ended June 30, 2022 compared to the corresponding period of 2021, due to the abovementioned scheduled dry-docks of the Clean Energy and the Amur River. The Partnership reported average daily hire gross of commissions(1) of approximately $62,860 per day per vessel in the three-month period ended June 30, 2022, compared to approximately $62,440 per day per vessel for the corresponding period of 2021. During both three-month periods ended June 30, 2022 and June 30, 2021, the Partnership's vessels operated at 100% utilization. Vessel operating expenses were $7.4 million, which corresponds to a daily rate per vessel of $13,588 in the three-month period ended June 30, 2022, as compared to $7.6 million, or a daily rate per vessel of $13,945 in the corresponding period of 2021. This decrease is mainly attributable to lower planned technical maintenance and crewing costs on the Partnership's vessels in the three months period ending June 30, 2022 compared to the corresponding period in 2021. Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was $22.9 million, as compared to $23.6 million for the corresponding period of 2021. The decrease of $0.7 million, or 3.0%, was mainly attributable to the effect of the decrease in revenues of the Clean Energy and the Amur River due to the off hire period during their scheduled dry-dock in the three months ended June 30, 2022. Interest and finance costs, net were $6.0 million in the three months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to $5.4 million in the corresponding period of 2021, which represents an increase of $0.6 million, or 11.1% due to the increase in the weighted average interest rate in the three months period ending June 30, 2022, compared to the corresponding period in 2021, which was partly counterbalanced by the reduction in interest bearing debt as compared to the corresponding period of 2021. For the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Partnership reported basic and diluted Earnings per common unit and Adjusted Earnings per common unit, of $0.22 and $0.17 respectively, after taking into account the distributions relating to the Series A Preferred Units and the Series B Preferred Units on the Partnership's Net income/Adjusted Net Income. Earnings per common unit and Adjusted Earnings per common unit, basic and diluted, are calculated on the basis of a weighted average number of 36,802,247 common units outstanding during the period and in the case of Adjusted Earnings per common unit after reflecting the impact of the non-cash items presented in Appendix B of this press release. Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Earnings per common unit are not recognized measures under U.S. GAAP. Please refer to Appendix B of this press release for the definitions and reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Amounts relating to variations in period–on–period comparisons shown in this section are derived from the condensed financials presented below. (1) Average daily hire gross of commissions represents voyage revenue excluding the non-cash time charter deferred revenue amortization, divided by the Available Days in the Partnership's fleet as described in Appendix B. Liquidity/ Financing/ Cash Flow CoverageDuring the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Partnership generated net cash from operating activities of $8.2 million as compared to $15.8 million in the corresponding period of 2021, which represents a decrease of $7.6 million, or 48.1% mainly as a result of working capital changes. As of June 30, 2022, the Partnership reported total cash of $100.2 million (including $50.0 million of restricted cash). The Partnership's outstanding indebtedness as of June 30, 2022 under the $675.0 Million Credit Facility amounted to $543.0 million, gross of unamortized deferred loan fees and including $48.0 million, which was repayable within one year. As of June 30, 2022, the Partnership had unused availability of $30.0 million under its interest free $30.0 million revolving credit facility with its Sponsor, or the $30.0 Million Revolving Credit Facility, which was extended on November 14, 2018, and is available to the Partnership at any time until November 2023. Vessel EmploymentAs of September 22, 2022, the Partnership had estimated contracted time charter coverage(1) for 100% of its fleet estimated Available Days (as defined in Appendix B) for 2022, 96% of its fleet estimated Available Days for 2023 and 83% of its fleet estimated Available Days for 2024. As of the same date, the Partnership's estimated contracted revenue backlog (2) (3) was $0.95 billion, with an average remaining contract term of 6.4 years. (1) Time charter coverage for the Partnership's fleet is calculated by dividing the fleet contracted days on the basis of the earliest estimated delivery and redelivery dates prescribed in the Partnership's current time charter contracts, net of scheduled class survey repairs by the number of expected Available Days during that period. (2) The Partnership calculates its estimated contracted revenue backlog by multiplying the contractual daily hire rate by the expected number of days committed under the contracts (assuming earliest delivery and redelivery and excluding options to extend), assuming full utilization. The actual amount of revenues earned and the actual periods during which revenues are earned may differ from the amounts and periods disclosed due to, for example, dry-docking and/or special survey downtime, maintenance projects, off-hire downtime and other factors that result in lower revenues than the Partnership's average contract backlog per day. (3) $0.14 billion of the revenue backlog estimate relates to the estimated portion of the hire contained in certain time charter contracts with Yamal which represents the operating expenses of the respective vessels and is subject to yearly adjustments on the basis of the actual operating costs incurred within each year. The actual amount of revenues earned in respect of such variable hire rate may therefore differ from the amounts included in the revenue backlog estimate due to the yearly variations in the respective vessels' operating costs. Conference Call and Webcast:As previously announced, the Partnership's management team will host a conference call on September 23, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss the Partnership's financial results.

The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides safe harbor protections for forward-looking statements in order to encourage companies to provide prospective information about their business. Forward-looking statements include statements concerning plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events or performance, and underlying assumptions and other statements, which are other than statements of historical facts. The Partnership desires to take advantage of the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and is including this cautionary statement in connection with this safe harbor legislation. The words "believe," "anticipate," "intends," "estimate," "forecast," "project," "plan," "potential," "project", "will", "may," "should," "expect," "expected," "pending"and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. These forward -looking are not intended to give any assurance as to future results and should not be relied upon. The forward-looking statements in this press release are based upon various assumptions and estimates, many of which are based, in turn, upon further assumptions, including without limitation, examination by the Partnership's management of historical operating trends, data contained in its records and other data available from third parties. Although the Partnership believes that these assumptions were reasonable when made, because these assumptions are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies which are difficult or impossible to predict and are beyond the Partnership's control, the Partnership cannot assure you that it will achieve or accomplish these expectations, beliefs or projections. In addition to these important factors, other important factors that, in the Partnership's view, could cause actual results to differ materially from those discussed, expressed or implied, in the forward- looking statements include, but are not limited to, the strength of world economies and currency fluctuations, general market conditions, including fluctuations in charter rates, ownership days, and vessel values, changes in supply and demand for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) shipping capacity, changes in the Partnership's operating expenses, including bunker prices, drydocking and insurance costs, the market for the Partnership's vessels, availability of financing and refinancing, changes in governmental laws, rules and regulations or actions taken by regulatory authorities, economic, regulatory, political and governmental conditions that affect the shipping and the LNG industry, potential liability from pending or future litigation, and potential costs due to environmental damage and vessel collisions, general domestic and international political conditions, potential disruption of shipping routes due to accidents or political events, vessel breakdowns, instances of off-hires, the length and severity of epidemics and pandemics, including COVID-19, the impact of public health threats and outbreaks of other highly communicable diseases, the impact of the expected discontinuance of the London Interbank Offered Rate, or, LIBOR, after June 30, 2023 on any of our debt referencing LIBOR in the interest rate, the amount of cash available for distribution, and other factors. Due to the ongoing Russian conflicts with Ukraine, the United States, the European Union, Canada and other Western countries and organizations have announced and enacted numerous sanctions against Russia to impose severe economic pressure on the Russian economy and government. The full impact of the commercial and economic consequences of the Russian conflict with Ukraine are uncertain at this time. Potential consequences of the sanctions that could impact the Partnership's business in the future include but are not limited to: (1) limiting and/or banning the use of the SWIFT financial and payment system that would negatively affect payments under the Partnership's existing vessel charters; (2) the Partnership's counterparties being potentially limited by sanctions from performing under its agreements; and (3) a general deterioration of the Russian economy. In addition, the Partnership may have greater difficulties raising capital in the future, which could potentially reduce the level of future investment into its expansion and operations. The Partnership cannot provide any assurance that any further development in sanctions, or escalation of the Ukraine situation more generally, will not have a significant impact on its business, financial condition or results of operations. Please see the Partnership's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a more complete discussion of these and other risks and uncertainties. The information set forth herein speaks only as of the date hereof, and the Partnership disclaims any intention or obligation to update any forward-looking statements as a result of developments occurring after the date of this communication. APPENDIX A DYNAGAS LNG PARTNERS LPCondensed Consolidated Statements of Income DYNAGAS LNG PARTNERS LP Consolidated Condensed Balance Sheets(Expressed in thousands of U.S. Dollars—except for unit data) DYNAGAS LNG PARTNERS LP Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows (Expressed in thousands of U.S. Dollars) APPENDIX B Fleet statistics Reconciliation of U.S. GAAP Financial Information to Non-GAAP Financial Information Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA (1) Includes interest and finance costs and interest income, if any. The Partnership defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest and finance costs, net of interest income (if any), gains/losses on derivative financial instruments, taxes (when incurred), depreciation and amortization (when incurred), class survey costs and significant non-recurring items (if any). Adjusted EBITDA is used as a supplemental financial measure by management and external users of financial statements, such as investors, to assess the Partnership's operating performance. The Partnership believes that Adjusted EBITDA assists its management and investors by providing useful information that increases the ability to compare the Partnership's operating performance from period to period and against that of other companies in its industry that provide Adjusted EBITDA information. This increased comparability is achieved by excluding the potentially disparate effects between periods or against companies of interest, other financial items, depreciation and amortization and taxes, which items are affected by various and possible changes in financing methods, capital structure and historical cost basis and which items may significantly affect net income between periods. The Partnership believes that including Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of operating performance benefits investors in (a) selecting between investing in the Partnership and other investment alternatives and (b) monitoring the Partnership's ongoing financial and operational strength. Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to and does not purport to represent cash flows for the period, nor is it presented as an alternative to operating income. Further, Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under U.S. GAAP and does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, cash flow from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income and these measures may vary among other companies. Therefore, Adjusted EBITDA, as presented above, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other businesses because they may be defined or calculated differently by those other businesses. It should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for a measure of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Any Non-GAAP measures should be viewed as supplemental to, and should not be considered as alternatives to, GAAP measures including, but not limited to net earnings (loss), operating profit (loss), cash flow from operating, investing and financing activities, or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted Net Income available to common unitholders and Adjusted Earnings per common unit Adjusted Net Income represents net income before non-recurring expenses (if any), charter hire amortization related to time charters with escalating time charter rates and changes in the fair value of derivative financial instruments. Adjusted Net Income available to common unitholders represents the common unitholders interest in Adjusted Net Income for each period presented. Adjusted Earnings per common unit represents Adjusted Net Income attributable to common unitholders divided by the weighted average common units outstanding during each period presented. Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per common unit and Adjusted Earnings per common unit, basic and diluted, are not recognized measures under U.S. GAAP and should not be regarded as substitutes for net income and earnings per unit, basic and diluted. The Partnership's definitions of Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per common unit and Adjusted Earnings per common unit, basic and diluted, may not be the same at those reported by other companies in the shipping industry or other industries. The Partnership believes that the presentation of Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings per unit available to common unitholders are useful to investors because these measures facilitate the comparability and the evaluation of companies in the Partnership's industry. In addition, the Partnership believes that Adjusted Net Income is useful in evaluating its operating performance compared to that of other companies in the Partnership's industry because the calculation of Adjusted Net Income generally eliminates the accounting effects of items which may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance. The Partnership's presentation of Adjusted Net Income available to common unitholders and Adjusted Earnings per common unit does not imply, and should not be construed as an inference, that its future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for a measure of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

TETRA TECHNOLOGIES, INC. ANNOUNCES MAIDEN INFERRED RESOURCES OF 5.25 MILLION TONS OF ELEMENTAL BROMINE AND 234,000 TONS OF LITHIUM CARBONATE EQUIVALENT

TETRA TECHNOLOGIES, INC. ANNOUNCES MAIDEN INFERRED RESOURCES OF 5.25 MILLION TONS OF ELEMENTAL BROMINE AND 234,000 TONS OF LITHIUM CARBONATE EQUIVALENT THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Sept. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- TETRA Technologies, Inc. ("TETRA" or the "Company") (NYSE: TTI) announced the completion of its maiden inferred bromine and lithium brine resource estimation report for its brine minerals leased acreage in the Smackover Formation in Southwest Arkansas. The technical report summary, which is available in its entirety on TETRA's website Investor Relations - Presentations (tetratec.com), reflects the following: The brine resource underlying the approximately 40,000 gross acres where TETRA holds the bromine mineral rights is estimated to contain an inferred resource of 5.25 million short tons (4.763 million metric tonnes) of elemental bromine; andThe brine resource underlying the approximately 5,000 gross acres where TETRA holds lithium mineral rights that are not subject to a lithium option agreement with Standard Lithium, is estimated to contain an inferred resource of 44,000 short tons (40,000 metric tonnes) of elemental lithium. Using a conversion factor of 5.323 to convert elemental lithium to Lithium Carbonate Equivalent (LCE) it is estimated to contain 234,000 short tons of LCE (212,000 metric tonnes of LCE).The maiden TETRA bromine and lithium brine resource estimations are presented as total resource within the Upper Smackover Member underlying the TETRA property. Resource estimations were completed and reported using cutoffs of 250 mg/liter bromine and 50 mg/liter lithium. Brady Murphy, President and Chief Executive Officer, said "This maiden inferred resources report increases our confidence that we have a valuable TETRA asset with two key minerals that are critical to the current and future global energy needs. With an oil and gas recovery that we believe is in the early stages of a multi-year up cycle, coupled with the projected 30% CAGR(1) for the energy storage market in the coming years, 5.25 million tons (or 10.5 billion pounds) of elemental bromine inferred resource, if successfully extracted, could allow us to meet the growing demand for our offshore completion fluids market and for our patented TETRA PureFlow® ultra-pure zinc bromide clear brine fluid that is a critical electrolyte component for long-duration energy storage. At our West Memphis, Arkansas chemical plant, TETRA has been and is converting elemental bromine into high value offshore completion fluids (including its patented TETRA CS Neptune® fluids technology) and more recently into PureFlow®. Extracting commercial quantities of bromine from the Smackover Formation in Arkansas is a well-established process with existing technologies and has been done for over 50 years. TETRA has held these Arkansas brine leases since the mid-1980's and is now pursuing development plans to enable TETRA to meet expected future bromine needs. For reference, 10.5 billion pounds represents approximately 380 years of supply when benchmarked to our average annual consumption over the past 15 years. Any amounts of bromine that we are able to extract and use from this formation would be in addition to the volumes of elemental bromine we are currently buying under an existing long-term agreement. Intratec recently reported that the price of elemental bromine in the U.S. was approximately $4,300 per short ton. "With battery grade LCE spot market prices of approximately $71,600 per ton as reported in a recent research report by Canaccord Genuity Capital Markets and an average selling price of approximately $58,000 per short ton from a recent second quarter financial results report of a large publicly traded international lithium producer, a lithium asset of this magnitude, if all of the lithium were realized, would provide TETRA a significant opportunity to expand our products portfolio in the fast growing battery market. TETRA has identified a direct lithium extraction (DLE) technology based on adsorption/desorption using a proven, commercially available resin that is currently being successfully used in commercial lithium extraction operations from salar brines. Using our lithium-rich Arkansas brine samples from our recently completed test well, our inferred resource report details the excellent DLE laboratory and pilot unit results from our research group at our TETRA Innovation Group Technology Center in Conroe, Texas. "The inferred resource report also confirms that the Smackover Formation is enriched in bromine (an average of 5,371 mg/liter) and lithium (an average of 416 mg/liter), which we expected based on our previously disclosed test well fluid sampling results. Based on the recent test well drilled on the TETRA 5,000 acres, the brine samples from the Upper Smackover Member within that well yielded the highest recorded lithium values (461-489 mg/liter) within the Upper Smackover Member, which may indicate uniquely elevated lithium brine within the targeted acreage where TETRA retains both the bromine and lithium rights. "Our next steps are to complete a bromine front end engineering and design (FEED) study that is already underway, drill the source and disposal wells, build the pipeline infrastructure and build an elemental bromine extraction plant. We intend to complete a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) for the bromine extraction plant this year. Starting in 2023, we will begin work on a lithium FEED study and a PEA for a lithium extraction plant to enable extraction of lithium from our dedicated 5,000 gross acres." Readers are encouraged to read the entire maiden inferred resource estimation report available on our website to understand the methodology and robustness of the process to arrive at the findings referenced in this press release.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward Looking StatementsThis news release includes certain statements that are deemed to be forward-looking statements. Generally, the use of words such as "may," "see," "expectation," "expect," "intend," "estimate," "projects," "anticipate," "believe," "assume," "could," "should," "plans," "targets" or similar expressions that convey the uncertainty of future events, activities, expectations or outcomes identify forward-looking statements that the Company intends to be included within the safe harbor protections provided by the federal securities laws. These forward-looking statements include statements concerning economic and operating conditions that are outside of our control, including statements concerning recovery of the oil and gas industry; customer delays for international completion fluids related to global shipping and logistics issues; potential revenue associated with prospective energy storage projects or our pending carbon capture partnership; inferred mineral resources of lithium and bromine, the potential extraction of lithium and bromine from the leased acreage, the economic viability thereof, the demand for such resources, and the timing and costs of such activities; the ability to obtain a preliminary economic assessment regarding our lithium and bromine acreage; projections concerning the Company's business activities, financial guidance, estimated earnings, earnings per share, and statements regarding the Company's beliefs, expectations, plans, goals, future events and performance, and other statements that are not purely historical. With respect to the Company's disclosures of inferred mineral resources, including bromine and lithium carbonate equivalent concentrations, it is uncertain if further exploration will ever result in the estimation of a higher category of mineral resource or a mineral reserve. Inferred mineral resources are considered to have the lowest level of geological confidence of all mineral resources. Investors are cautioned that mineral resources do not have demonstrated economic value. Inferred mineral resources have a high degree of uncertainty as to their existence and to whether they can be economically or legally commercialized. Under the SEC's rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of an economic analysis. A significant amount of exploration must be completed in order to determine whether an inferred mineral resource may be upgraded to a higher category. Therefore, you are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource exists, that it can be economically or legally commercialized, or that it will ever be upgraded to a higher category. These forward-looking statements are based on certain assumptions and analyses made by the Company in light of its experience and its perception of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors it believes are appropriate in the circumstances. Such statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the control of the Company. Investors are cautioned that any such statements are not guarantees of future performances or results and that actual results or developments may differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. Some of the factors that could affect actual results are described in the section titled "Risk Factors" contained in the Company's Annual Reports on Form 10-K, as well as other risks identified from time to time in its reports on Form 10-Q and Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Technical Person StatementThe technical information relating to the mineral resource estimations presented in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. Roy Eccles P. Geol. of APEX Geoscience Ltd. Mr. Eccles is independent of TETRA and a Qualified Person as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission in S-K 1300.

Matador Resources Company Announces Upgrade to Corporate Credit Rating

Matador Resources Company Announces Upgrade to Corporate Credit Rating DALLAS, Sep. 21 /BusinessWire/ -- Matador Resources Company (NYSE:MTDR) ("Matador" or the "Company") today announced the recent upgrade by S&P Global Ratings ("S&P") to the Company's corporate credit rating. On September 19, 2022, S&P upgraded Matador's issuer credit rating from `B+' to `BB-'. In its September 19, 2022 press release, S&P noted, "The upgrade to `BB-' reflects Matador's very strong credit measures, which are supported by its debt repayment and conservative financial policy." More information regarding S&P's upgrade of Matador may be found at www.spglobal.com/ratingsdirect. Joseph Wm. Foran, Matador's Chairman and CEO, commented, "We are very pleased with S&P's upgrade to our corporate credit rating, which was Matador's second such upgrade in as many weeks. As we previously announced, Moody's upgraded Matador's corporate family rating last week from `B1' to `Ba3'. Matador's credit ratings with S&P and Moody's are now higher than the Company's pre-pandemic credit ratings, which reflects our staff's commitment to adding value to Matador by generating cash flow, paying down debt, improving capital efficiency and increasing production and reserves despite the difficult and challenging operating environment during the last two-and-a-half years. Matador is unquestionably a stronger company, both operationally and financially, than it was two years ago. Since the end of the third quarter of 2020, Matador has reduced its outstanding debt by $663 million or approximately 44% of our then total revolving debt and senior notes outstanding. Matador's reserves-based revolving credit facility has been completely repaid, and Matador has repurchased $188 million of its outstanding senior notes in a series of open market transactions, reducing its outstanding bonds from $1.05 billion to $862 million at September 12, 2022. In addition, Matador's production has increased by over 50% from 73,000 barrels of oil and natural gas equivalent per day in the third quarter of 2020 to nearly 111,000 barrels of oil and natural gas equivalent per day in the second quarter of 2022. We look forward to sharing our financial results, our operational progress and the growth in value of our oil and natural gas assets as well as our midstream business as part of our third quarter earnings release in late October."
