Braya enters Macquarie supply and offtake agreement, gets senior loan from HPS

The low-carbon fuels developer has entered into two transactions to advance the conversion of its Come-by-Chance renewable diesel facility in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Braya Renewable Fuels, a Newfoundland and Labrador-based producer of low-carbon intensity renewable fuels, has closed two transactions that support the conversion of Braya’s refinery operations and together fund the working capital needs of the company.

A supply and offtake agreement was executed with Macquarie Energy Canada Ltd., a subsidiary of Macquarie Group’s Commodities and Global Markets group, to provide inventory monetization for renewable feedstocks and products.

Simultaneously, Braya executed a $75m senior secured term loan with HPS Investment Partners, LLC which will be used to further Braya’s renewable diesel conversion project.

“These transactions represent a major milestone toward completing our renewable diesel conversion project and entering into the commercial phase,” said Todd O’Malley, CEO of Braya. “We are proud of the efforts of our team who remain committed to the promise of the Braya project.”

Stephen Callender, CFO of Braya, added, “We are extremely excited to have the support of leading financial institutions in Macquarie and HPS as we finalize the conversion project and satisfy our working capital needs for commercial operation.”

Braya expects to complete the conversion of its previously announced Come-by-Chance renewable diesel facility in December and will immediately begin startup procedures for the commercial sale of renewable diesel. Once operational, the project will be one of the largest independently-owned renewable diesel facilities in North America, initially supplying up to 18,000 barrels per day of low carbon intensity renewable fuel with expansion plans to increase capacity and begin production of sustainable aviation fuel.
