Prioritising infrastructure assets and services that meet the requirements of modern energy systems

Targeting the energy supply chain with a focus on end-market diversification, alongside alternative fuel storage systems

At Bluewater, we have continuously developed and refined our acquisition and investment strategy to ensure it remains closely aligned with the prevailing drivers and imperatives – and consequent opportunities – of the global energy market.

Paramount in our considerations has been the question of how we apply our proven returns-focused model across both conventional energy markets and the many new possibilities emerging on the journey to a low-carbon energy future.

With an absolute focus on the energy transition space, our strategy today is founded upon four interlinked strands that come together to impact positively on the climate change agenda while addressing the associated challenge of delivering energy security in an era of growing demand.

Our Energy Transition is…

Turning traditional fossil fuel use to new technologies.
Greatly enhancing the sustainability of all energy types.
