An international oil and gas company was evaluating a strategy to generate mitigation and conservation banking credits from their portfolio of surplus and buffer properties. Great Ecology participated in the vetting of this strategy through the evaluation of 20+ potential properties located throughout the Western United States. Evaluations involved: assessment of regional ecosystem markets (credit supply and demand); preliminary analysis of site conditions and potential for ecological uplift; pro forma evaluations of banking opportunities; and in some cases, preliminary identification of credit buyers. Great Ecology’s evaluations informed the client’s decisions regarding mitigation banking as a strategy to monetize their surplus and buffer properties.
