The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory Team Up with Gevo to Apply Argonne's GREET Model to its Net-Zero Project
The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory Team Up with Gevo to Apply Argonne's GREET Model to its Net-Zero Project ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Sept. 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gevo, Inc. (NASDAQ: GEVO) The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory recently partnered with Gevo, Inc., a Colorado-based producer of energy-dense liquid hydrocarbons such as sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and renewable premium gasoline, to perform a critical lifecycle analysis of its next-generation technology. Using data provided by Gevo, Argonne's Greenhouse gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy use in Technologies (GREET) Model is expected to yield results regarding carbon footprints of these fuels within a few months. The effort is funded by the DOE's Bioenergy Technologies Office, which is part of the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE). "I am thrilled by this partnership and by the DOE's investment in this project," said Michael Wang, an Argonne Distinguished Fellow, Senior Scientist, and the Director of the Systems Assessment Center of the Energy Systems division at the laboratory. "This is the type of real-world application GREET was made for." GREET's pioneering lifecycle analysis considers a host of different fuel production pathways. Results include energy use, emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants, and water consumption related to the production processes. The analysis also includes results across the whole of the fuel pathway system, from capturing carbon via photosynthesis to the final burning of the fuel. Uisung Lee, an energy systems analyst in the Systems Assessment Center of the Energy Systems Division at Argonne, said that "Gevo's commitment to reach net-zero carbon emissions with advanced renewable hydrocarbon fuels, including SAF and renewable premium gasoline made from field cornnot only in relation to the final product but in every stage of the production along the entire supply chainwill show how deep decarbonization of biofuels can be achieved holistically." "Biofuels are low carbon already," Lee said. "But Gevo wants it to be net-zero carbon. That's an ambitious goal and one that would be a game-changer in the biofuel industry." Argonne will examine emissions at every stage of the supply chain: This "field to aircraft wake" analysis will include each possible step from production to combustion. "While it might be impossible to reach zero carbon emissions at every stage, sustainable farming practices and carbon capture from biofuel plants and re-use might help the company reach its goal when measured across the whole biofuel supply chain system," Wang said. GREET is unique; it is based on well-developed science and it allows for adaptation, and, in this way, can accommodate changes and incorporate new ideas, including those arising in agriculture and forestry, which are so important to innovation. "We believe in radical transparency when it comes to sustainability. It's incredibly important to have good data, good models, and use them for decision making, especially when making choices about technologies across the business system. When we find a process where we can reduce our carbon intensity, we have to analyze it, and if it moves us further down the path to our goals, we try to implement it," says Dr. Patrick Gruber, Chief Executive Officer of Gevo, Inc. "The tools that the GREET model provides are key to our business model. We have used the GREET model as a guidepost for our process because those benefits are realized in the resulting analysis. It's why our plants are expected to operate on renewable energy, including wind turbines, and why we chose to integrate renewable biogas into our production system. I expect that, as we work through the analysis with Argonne's team, we will come up with additional great ideas to get our carbon footprint down even further." GREET is constantly being improved: The GREET software provides users with a ready-use life cycle analysis tool to perform simulations of alternative transportation fuels and vehicle technologies in just a few minutes. At present, there are more than 48,000 registered GREET users worldwide. Wang said that Argonne plans on releasing its findings from this collaboration soon. The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy supports early-stage research and development of energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies to strengthen U.S. economic growth, energy security, and environmental quality. About Gevo Gevo's mission is to transform renewable energy and carbon into energy-dense liquid hydrocarbons. These liquid hydrocarbons can be used for drop-in transportation fuels such as gasoline, jet fuel and diesel fuel, that when burned have potential to yield net-zero greenhouse gas emissions when measured across the full life cycle of the products. Gevo uses low-carbon renewable resource-based carbohydrates as raw materials, and is in an advanced state of developing renewable electricity and renewable natural gas for use in production processes, resulting in low-carbon fuels with substantially reduced carbon intensity (the level of greenhouse gas emissions compared to standard petroleum fossil-based fuels across their life cycle). Gevo's products perform as well or better than traditional fossil-based fuels in infrastructure and engines, but with substantially reduced greenhouse gas emissions. In addition to addressing the problems of fuels, Gevo's technology also enables certain plastics, such as polyester, to be made with more sustainable ingredients. Gevo's ability to penetrate the growing low-carbon fuels market depends on the price of oil and the value of abating carbon emissions that would otherwise increase greenhouse gas emissions. Gevo believes that its proven, patented technology enabling the use of a variety of low-carbon sustainable feedstocks to produce price-competitive low-carbon products such as gasoline components, jet fuel and diesel fuel yields the potential to generate project and corporate returns that justify the build-out of a multi-billion-dollar business. Gevo believes that the Argonne National Laboratory GREET model is the best available standard of scientific-based measurement for life cycle inventory or LCI.

PEDEVCO Publishes Updated Company Presentation and Provides Operations Update
PEDEVCO Publishes Updated Company Presentation and Provides Operations Update Increased Focus on Highly Economic and Prospective D-J Basin OpportunitiesHOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / September 20, 2021 / PEDEVCO Corp. (NYSE American:PED), an energy company engaged in the acquisition and development of strategic, high growth energy projects in the U.S., published its updated Company presentation on its website at www.PEDEVCO.com. The Company's presentation includes, among other things, additional information on the Company's "Phase III" Permian Basin development plan, with updated San Andres well type curves and economics, as well as information regarding positive developments in the D-J Basin, including recent exceptional offset well performance and updated Niobrara well type curves and economics.Mr. J. Douglas Schick, the Company's President, commented: "We are very pleased and encouraged by the exceptional offset well performance seen by third party operators in and around our D-J Basin acreage position in recent years, attributed largely to favorable geologic targeting and improved completion techniques. Both 30-day IP and cumulative production per well results have grown substantially, making the D-J Basin one the most economic and best-performing oil basins in the U.S. Given these increasingly positive results, PEDEVCO plans to increase its capital allocation to non-operated projects in the D-J Basin, with the Company recently electing to participate in four horizontal Niobrara wells with a ~6% working interest at a net cost to the Company of ~$1.2 million that have been drilled by another operator and were completed in August 2021, and an additional eight horizontal Niobrara wells in which it holds a ~5% working interest at an expected net cost to the Company of ~$2 million that are slated for drilling by another operator in the first quarter of 2022. We have advanced our business development activities in the basin over the past year which we believe will add opportunities for growth and development. We plan to continue to evaluate D-J Basin well proposals as received from third party operators and participate in those we deem most economic and prospective. In the meantime, we continue to move forward with the "Phase III" development of our Permian Basin asset, with the first two horizontal wells planned for drilling later this year or early 2022. We will continue to seek to leverage our debt-free balance sheet and deploy our ~$20 million in free cash in the development of our D-J Basin and Permian Basin assets in a manner most accretive to our shareholders."About PEDEVCO Corp.PEDEVCO Corp.

Forward-Looking Statements This press release contains forward-looking statements as defined under Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, that address activities that Laredo assumes, plans, expects, believes, intends, projects, indicates, enables, transforms, estimates or anticipates (and other similar expressions) will, should or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements are based on management's current belief, based on currently available information, as to the outcome and timing of future events. General risks relating to Laredo include, but are not limited to, the decline in prices of oil, natural gas liquids and natural gas and the related impact to financial statements as a result of asset impairments and revisions to reserve estimates, the ability of the Company to execute its strategies, including its ability to successfully identify and consummate strategic acquisitions at purchase prices that are accretive to its financial results and to successfully integrate acquired businesses, assets and properties, oil production quotas or other actions that might be imposed by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and other producing countries ("OPEC+"), the outbreak of disease, such as the coronavirus ("COVID-19") pandemic, and any related government policies and actions, changes in domestic and global production, supply and demand for commodities, including as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and actions by OPEC+, long-term performance of wells, drilling and operating risks, the increase in service and supply costs, tariffs on steel, pipeline transportation and storage constraints in the Permian Basin, the possibility of production curtailment, hedging activities, the impacts of severe weather, including the freezing of wells and pipelines in the Permian Basin due to cold weather, possible impacts of litigation and regulations, the impact of the Company's transactions, if any, with its securities from time to time, the impact of new laws and regulations, including those regarding the use of hydraulic fracturing, the impact of new environmental, health and safety requirements applicable to the Company's business activities, the possibility of the elimination of federal income tax deductions for oil and gas exploration and development and other factors, including those and other risks described in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on May 11, 2021, and those set forth from time to time in other filings with the SEC. These documents are available through Laredo's website at www.laredopetro.com under the tab "Investor Relations" or through the SEC's Electronic Data Gathering and Analysis Retrieval System at www.sec.gov. Any of these factors could cause Laredo's actual results and plans to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Therefore, Laredo can give no assurance that its future results will be as estimated. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made. Laredo does not intend to, and disclaims any obligation to, correct update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law. This press release and any accompanying disclosures include financial measures that are not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), such as Free Cash Flow, Net Asset Value and Adjusted EBITDA. While management believes that such measures are useful for investors, they should not be used as a replacement for financial measures that are in accordance with GAAP. For definitions of such non-GAAP financial measures, please see the supplemental financial information at the end of this press release. Unless otherwise specified, references to "average sales price" refer to average sales price excluding the effects of the Company's derivative transactions. All amounts, dollars and percentages presented in this press release are rounded and therefore approximate. Free Cash Flow Free Cash Flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company defines as net cash provided by operating activities (GAAP) before changes in operating assets and liabilities, net, less incurred capital expenditures, excluding non-budgeted acquisition costs. Free Cash Flow does not represent funds available for future discretionary use because it excludes funds required for future debt service, capital expenditures, acquisitions, working capital, income taxes, franchise taxes and other commitments and obligations. However, management believes Free Cash Flow is useful to management and investors in evaluating operating trends in its business that are affected by production, commodity prices, operating costs and other related factors. There are significant limitations to the use of Free Cash Flow as a measure of performance, including the lack of comparability due to the different methods of calculating Free Cash Flow reported by different companies. Net Asset Value Net Asset Value is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company defines as the present value of future revenues less future expenses, less Net Debt. Net Asset Value does not represent the standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows because it adjusts for Net Debt and excludes adjustments for future income tax expense. However, management believes Net Asset Value is useful to management and investors in evaluating the value of the Company, which is affected by the pace of capital expenditures and development of inventory, future commodity prices and future prices of services utilized to develop the Company's inventory. There are significant limitations to the use of Net Asset Value as a measure of value, including lack of comparability to calculations of Net Asset Value by other companies due to differences in assumptions utilized in the calculations. Adjusted EBITDA Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company defines as net income or loss (GAAP) plus adjustments for share-settled equity-based compensation, depletion, depreciation and amortization, impairment expense, mark-to-market on derivatives, premiums paid or received for commodity derivatives that matured during the period, accretion expense, gains or losses on disposal of assets, interest expense, income taxes and other non-recurring income and expenses. Adjusted EBITDA provides no information regarding a company's capital structure, borrowings, interest costs, capital expenditures, working capital movement or tax position. Adjusted EBITDA does not represent funds available for future discretionary use because it excludes funds required for debt service, capital expenditures, working capital, income taxes, franchise taxes and other commitments and obligations. However, management believes Adjusted EBITDA is useful to an investor in evaluating the Company's operating performance because this measure: is widely used by investors in the oil and natural gas industry to measure a company's operating performance without regard to items that can vary substantially from company to company depending upon accounting methods, the book value of assets, capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired, among other factors;helps investors to more meaningfully evaluate and compare the results of the Company's operations from period to period by removing the effect of its capital structure from its operating structure; and is used by management for various purposes, including as a measure of operating performance, in presentations to the Company's board of directors and as a basis for strategic planning and forecasting. There are significant limitations to the use of Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of performance, including the inability to analyze the effect of certain recurring and non-recurring items that materially affect the Company's net income or loss and the lack of comparability of results of operations to different companies due to the different methods of calculating Adjusted EBITDA reported by different companies. The Company's measurements of Adjusted EBITDA for financial reporting as compared to compliance under its debt agreements differ. Net Debt Net Debt, a non-GAAP financial measure, is calculated as the face value of long-term debt less cash and cash equivalents. Management believes Net Debt is useful to management and investors in determining the Company's leverage position since the Company has the ability, and may decide, to use a portion of its cash and cash equivalents to reduce debt. Net Debt to TTM Adjusted EBITDA Net Debt to TTM Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is calculated as Net Debt divided by trailing twelve-month Adjusted EBITDA. Net Debt to TTM Adjusted EBITDA is used by the Company's management for various purposes, including as a measure of operating performance, in presentations to its board of directors and as a basis for strategic planning and forecasting.

Diamondback Energy, Inc. Accelerates Capital Return to Stockholders and Initiates Share Repurchase Program
Diamondback Energy, Inc. Accelerates Capital Return to Stockholders and Initiates Share Repurchase Program MIDLAND, Texas, Sept. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Diamondback Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: FANG) ("Diamondback" or the "Company") today announced that it has accelerated its plans to return 50% of Free Cash Flow to stockholders to the fourth quarter of 2021, and the Board of Directors has approved an up to $2.0 billion share repurchase program to complement this return commitment. "Diamondback is accelerating its previously announced capital return program due to continued strong operational performance and improved capital efficiency, a supportive macro backdrop and increasing financial strength. Our plan to return 50% of Free Cash Flow quarterly through our base dividend and other return mechanisms will now begin in the fourth quarter of 2021. The remaining Free Cash Flow, as well as asset sale proceeds, will be earmarked for further debt reduction. We expect the previously announced sale of our North Dakota assets to close in the next few weeks, timing dependent on final government approval. The net proceeds from that sale, along with cash on hand, will be used to pay off the remaining $650 million in outstanding callable debt in our capital structure," stated Travis Stice, Chief Executive Officer of Diamondback. Mr. Stice continued, "Diamondback's Board has approved a $2.0 billion share repurchase program to complement the acceleration of our capital return program. While our consistent and growing base dividend remains our primary means of returning capital, we plan to opportunistically repurchase shares of our common stock with the remaining Free Cash Flow allocated to our stockholders when we expect the return on that repurchase to be well in excess of our cost of capital at mid-cycle commodity prices, which is the case today. We will cease repurchasing our common stock and return excess Free Cash Flow to our stockholders in the form of a variable dividend when we expect the return on that repurchase to be less than our cost of capital at mid-cycle commodity prices. As stated previously, we intend to be flexible on returning capital through the method our Board believes presents the best return to our stockholders at that time. While the form of return may be flexible, we remain committed to consistently returning Free Cash Flow to stockholders." Stock Repurchase Program On September 15, 2021, Diamondback's Board of Directors authorized the Company to acquire up to $2.0 billion of common stock, effective immediately. The Company intends to purchase stock under the repurchase program opportunistically with funds from cash generated from operations and liquidity events such as the sale of assets. This repurchase program may be suspended from time to time, modified, extended or discontinued by the Board of Directors at any time. Purchases under the repurchase program may be made from time to time in open market or privately negotiated transactions in compliance with Rule 10b-18 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including under a 10b5-1 plan that may be implemented by the Company, and will be subject to market conditions, applicable legal requirements, contractual obligations and other factors. Any stock purchased as part of this program will no longer be outstanding and will be available for future issuances by the Company. About Diamondback Energy, Inc.

Forward-looking Statements The information included in this press release includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Such forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, as disclosed by Nabors from time to time in its filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. As a result of these factors, Nabors' actual results may differ materially from those indicated or implied by such forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release reflect management's estimates and beliefs as of the date of this press release. Nabors does not undertake to update these forward-looking statements. Non-GAAP Disclaimer This press release presents certain "non-GAAP" financial measures. The components of these non-GAAP measures are computed by using amounts that are determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). Adjusted operating income (loss) represents income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes, interest expense, earnings (losses) from unconsolidated affiliates, investment income (loss), (gain)/loss on debt buybacks and exchanges, impairments and other charges and other, net. Adjusted EBITDA is computed similarly, but also excludes depreciation and amortization expenses. In addition, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted operating income (loss) exclude certain cash expenses that the Company is obligated to make. Net debt is calculated as total debt minus the sum of cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments. Free cash flow represents net cash provided by operating activities less cash used for investing activities. Free cash flow is an indicator of our ability to generate cash flow after required spending to maintain or expand our asset base. Management believes that this non-GAAP measure is useful information to investors when comparing our cash flows with the cash flows of other companies. Each of these non-GAAP measures has limitations and therefore should not be used in isolation or as a substitute for the amounts reported in accordance with GAAP. However, management evaluates the performance of its operating segments and the consolidated Company based on several criteria, including adjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating income (loss), net debt, and free cash flow, because it believes that these financial measures accurately reflect the Company's ongoing profitability and performance. Securities analysts and investors also use these measures as some of the metrics on which they analyze the Company's performance. Other companies in this industry may compute these measures differently. Reconciliations of consolidated adjusted EBITDA and adjusted operating income (loss) to income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes, net debt to total debt, and free cash flow to cash flow provided by operations, which are their nearest comparable GAAP financial measures, are included in the tables at the end of this press release.

ION receives grant to support UK net zero target through port decarbonization
ION receives grant to support UK net zero target through port decarbonization HOUSTON, Sept. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ION Geophysical Corporation's Edinburgh-based Software group today announced the Company received a grant to advance port decarbonization through its climate-smart platform, Marlin SmartPort. The grant supports the UK's Ten Point Plan to address climate change and help achieve the country's net-zero emissions target by 2050. The Data-Led Emissions Management (D-LEMA) project is part of the Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition, funded by the UK Department for Transport and delivered in partnership with Innovate UK. The 6-month pilot study will validate whether vessel fuel usage and carbon dioxide emissions can be reliably estimated in and around ports using the International Maritime Organization (IMO) global standard. Announced in March 2020, and part of the Prime Minister's Ten Point Plan to position the UK at the forefront of green shipbuilding and maritime technology, the Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition is a Â£20 million investment from government alongside a further ~Â£10 million from industry to reduce emissions from the maritime sector. The program is supporting 55 projects across the UK, including projects in Scotland, Northern Ireland and from the South West to the North East of England. As set out in the Clean Maritime Plan (2019), Government funding has been used to support early stage research relating to clean maritime. The program will be used to support the research, design and development of zero emission technology and infrastructure solutions for maritime and to accelerate decarbonization in the sector. "Today approximately 90% of goods are transported by sea and global shipping accounts for nearly 3% of global CO2 emissions," said Stuart Darling, Senior Vice President of ION's Software group. "Our technology is focused on creating high value information that drives smarter, safer management of the 5,000+ ports globally and the 50,000+ cargo vessels that transit between them. This grant enables us to continue advancing our maritime digitalization platform, Marlin SmartPort, which integrates systems and data to provide better real-time visibility and actionable intelligence to operate with just-in-time efficiency, minimizing fuel consumption and emissions. Our goal is to develop and validate fuel monitoring capabilities to start tracking and, ultimately, to reduce port-related shipping emissions. On behalf of ION, I would like to thank our project partners, Plymouth Marine Laboratory, who will supply the data, and the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult, who will assist with the analysis."

Pioneer Natural Resources Releases 2021 Sustainability Report, Announcing Net Zero Ambition and Enhanced Emissions Reduction Targets
Pioneer Natural Resources Releases 2021 Sustainability Report, Announcing Net Zero Ambition and Enhanced Emissions Reduction Targets DALLAS, Sep. 15 /BusinessWire/ -- Pioneer Natural Resources Company (NYSE:PXD) ("Pioneer" or "the Company") today announced the publication of its 2021 Sustainability Report, highlighting the Company's focus and significant progress on environmental, social and governance (ESG) programs. The comprehensive report highlights the Company's Net Zero ambition by 2050 and enhanced emissions reduction targets for greenhouse gas (GHG) and methane. In addition, the report details the Company's 2020 performance, including enhanced disclosures on air emissions, water management practices, diversity, equity and inclusion, board governance and community engagement. Highlights from Pioneer's 2021 Sustainability Report include: Instituting a pathway to Net Zero- Building on the Company's significant progress in reducing emission intensities, Pioneer adopted a Net Zero ambition by 2050 for both Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions. As outlined in the report, many key initiatives are already underway, demonstrating tangible progress towards the Company's planned pathway to reach Net Zero. Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) and methane emissions intensity and strengthening reduction targets - Pioneer achieved a 27% reduction in GHG emission intensity and a 50% reduction in methane intensity in 2020, exceeding the Company's previously established targets. With this accomplishment, the Company has increased its 2030 goals to a 50% reduction in GHG intensity and a 75% reduction in methane intensity from its 2019 baseline. Continuing to minimize flaring and commitment to end routine flaring - In 2020, Pioneer achieved a flaring intensity that was 79% lower than its goal to limit flaring to 1% of natural gas produced. The assets acquired in the Parsley and DoublePoint transactions will be incorporated into this target in 2021, consistent with Pioneer's high environmental standards. As previously disclosed, Pioneer plans to end routine flaring (as defined by the World Bank) by 2030, with the aspiration to accomplish this by 2025. Reducing freshwater consumption - Pioneer is adopting a target to reduce freshwater use in completions to less than 25% by 2026. The Company expects to achieve this goal by expanding its recycling capabilities and through its unique partnerships with the cities of Midland and Odessa to utilize reclaimed water. The Company has already achieved a 50% reduction in freshwater use from its 2015 completions baseline. Promoting diversity, equity and inclusion - Pioneer fosters an environment of respect in the workplace through the promotion of diversity, equity and inclusion. The Company's executive leadership team is currently 47% comprised of female or ethnically diverse individuals. The Company is targeting to increase its executive leadership diversity representation to greater than 50% through time. Demonstrating continued commitment to local communities - In addition to Pioneer and its employees donating more than $4 million to numerous charitable organizations in 2020, Pioneer continues to participate in a leadership role in the Permian Strategic Partnership, a consortium of Permian oil and gas companies driving improvements in the region in education, healthcare, workforce development, housing and road safety. Implementing Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) principles by year-end 2022 - Pioneer will publish an inaugural Climate Risk Report during the fourth quarter of 2021. The report will detail the Company's progress towards fully implementing TCFD principles into its business strategy, risk management, scenario planning and target and goal setting processes. This implementation is expected to be completed by year-end 2022, one year earlier than the Company had previously expected. As part of this ongoing effort, the Pioneer Board of Directors expanded the responsibilities of its Sustainability and Climate Oversight Committee to provide additional oversight and strategic direction to sustainability and climate matters at the Company. CEO Scott D. Sheffield stated, "Our board of directors, management team and employees are committed to ensuring Pioneer remains an ESG leader. We are dedicated to reducing our emissions intensities, being proactive and transparent in our engagement with stakeholders and the communities in which we operate and ensuring our governance policies and performance metrics align with our ESG goals. These efforts, in conjunction with Pioneer's low breakeven costs, low-emissions intensity, strong balance sheet and highly-skilled and diverse workforce, position the Company for continued long-term success." Chairman of the Board, J. Kenneth Thompson, stated "In addition to the information included in the Sustainability Report, Pioneer will publish its first Climate Risk Report later this year. Pioneer's goals and strategies will further strengthen our ESG leadership and allow us to provide reliable and affordable, low-emissions intensity, oil and gas to the world. Pioneer's best-in-class assets and people, coupled with our commitment to environmental stewardship, position the Company to remain a sustainable supplier of the world's energy needs for decades to come."

Aemetis Biogas Signs Utility Pipeline Interconnect Agreement and Funds Final Payment for Installation of Equipment
Aemetis Biogas Signs Utility Pipeline Interconnect Agreement and Funds Final Payment for Installation of Equipment PG&E Gas Pipeline Interconnect Expected to be Completed in Q4 2021 CUPERTINO, CA, Sept. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- Aemetis, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMTX), a renewable natural gas (RNG) and renewable fuels company focused on negative carbon intensity products, announced that its subsidiary Aemetis Biogas LLC has signed the Standard Renewable Gas Interconnection Agreement (SRGIA) with the Pacific Gas & Electric Company and funded the final $1.2 million payment for installation of PG&E's interconnection equipment to deliver renewable natural gas (RNG) into the utility gas pipeline in Q4 2021. The PG&E RNG interconnect equipment has already been fabricated onto modular units that are now scheduled to be delivered to the Keyes plant and installed during the next three months. When the interconnection unit is completed, the RNG produced by the Aemetis Biogas Central Diary Digester Project will be delivered into the Pacific Gas & Electric natural gas pipeline for sale to customers throughout California as transportation fuel. "As planned, the engineering, permitting, offsite equipment fabrication, and full payment of $2.3 million to PG&E has been completed," said Andy Foster, President of the Aemetis Biogas subsidiary of Aemetis, Inc. "PG&E manages the fabrication and installation of the interconnection system connecting the Aemetis biogas cleanup and compression facility to the gas utility pipeline. We are pleased that a significant milestone for completion of the Aemetis Biogas Central Dairy project was completed today." Aemetis has already built and currently operates two dairy biogas digesters, on-site dairy gas upgrading and pressurization facilities, and a four-mile biogas pipeline connecting the dairies to the Aemetis Keyes ethanol plant. The centralized biogas cleanup and onsite RNG fueling facilities at the Keyes plant are currently under construction for completion in Q4 2021, and the construction of 15 additional dairy biogas digesters are in progress for completion during 2022. The PG&E interconnection unit is a gateway for the network of lagoon digesters being built by Aemetis Biogas to produce renewable natural gas (RNG) for use as a transportation fuel. The biogas produced by the first two dairy digesters has received an approved pathway by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) utilizing negative 426 (-426) carbon intensity (CI) and is currently used to displace petroleum based natural gas consumed at the Keyes ethanol production facility for process energy. When fully built out, the planned 52 dairies in the Aemetis biogas project are expected to capture more than 1.4 million MMBtu of dairy methane and reduce greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to an estimated 5.2 million metric tonnes of CO2 each year, equal to removing the emissions from approximately 1.1 million cars per year. The Aemetis Biogas dairy RNG project, energy efficiency upgrades to the Aemetis Keyes biofuels plant, and the Aemetis Renewable Jet/Diesel project include $57 million of grant funding and other support from the US Department of Agriculture, the US Forest Service, the California Energy Commission, the California Department of Food and Agriculture, CAEATFA, and Pacific Gas and Electric's energy efficiency program.

Hello Pal Announces Investment in Language Education
Hello Pal Announces Investment in Language Education - Plans to relaunch Language Pal with innovative language learning features VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Hello Pal International Inc. ("Hello Pal" or the "Company") (CSE: HP) (Frankfurt: 27H) (OTC: HLLPF), a provider of rapidly growing international live-streaming, language learning and social-crypto platform, is pleased to announce that it has signed a Cooperation Agreement with Little Pal Asia Limited ("LPA") where the Company will be licensed, on a non-exclusive worldwide basis, to freely use LPA's innovative "Infinity Language" language learning system throughout the Company's product and service offerings, and in particular, in its Language Pal app. The Infinity Language learning system has its origins in successful early childhood education literacy software since 2008, and LPA has been funded by third party investors to adapt the learning system to the language learning market for children. Under the Cooperation Agreement, LPA will adapt the learning system in the adult market for Hello Pal's Language Pal. Accordingly, Hello Pal will enjoy exclusive use of the learning system in the adult language learning market, and will continue to enjoy new features and functionalities which are added to the learning system by LPA over time. As part of the terms of the agreement, the Company has taken a 15% equity interest in LPA for an investment amount of CAD 300,000, which will be mainly used for the further development of the Infinity Language learning system and adaptation for use in Language Pal. Other than this initial investment, Hello Pal will not be required to pay any other amounts to LPA for the use of the Infinity Language learning system. "I am thrilled that Hello Pal is now able to make a significant push into the adult language learning market," said Mr. Wong, Chairman and CEO of the Company. "As part of our overall plan to diversify our revenue sources into different yet related markets, this cooperation and investment will significantly allow us to relaunch Language Pal with the unique features it will need to be competitive in the language learning market." As the Company's CEO, KL Wong, is also a substantial shareholder of LPA, the investment constitutes a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 -Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company has relied on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 in respect of related party participation in the placement as neither the fair market value (as determined under MI 61-101) of the subject matter of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the transaction, insofar as it involved the related party, exceeded 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
