Our Nation’s Energy Future (‘ONE Future’) yesterday announced that WTG Midstream LLC (‘WTG’ or ‘West Texas Gas’), a leader in natural gas distribution operations, transmission, gathering/processing and natural gas liquids transmission services in Texas and Oklahoma, has joined the ONE Future Coalition. WTG will report its methane intensity within ONE Future’s gathering and boosting, processing, transmission and storage and distribution sectors.
“Welcoming West Texas Gas to the ONE Future family is the perfect way to begin another successful year,” said Jim Kibler, Executive Director, ONE Future. “Near the end of last year, we reported our fourth consecutive year of methane intensity decrease and grew our membership to more than 50 members. The addition of West Texas Gas will prove to be of value to our 2022 efforts as we increase our reach across the country.”
“We are pleased to join the ONE Future Coalition and look forward to contributing to their important mission of reducing methane emissions across the natural gas value chain,” said Robert Sheninger, Vice President – HSE & Sustainability, West Texas Gas. “West Texas Gas is committed to continuously improving and enhancing our environmental practices. We remain focused on our people, our communities and our customers, grounded in our safety foundation and commitment to delivering critical energy services.”
The ONE Future Coalition is a group of more than 50 natural gas companies working together to voluntarily reduce methane emissions across the natural gas value chain to 1% (or less) by 2025 and is comprised of some of the largest natural gas production, gathering and boosting, processing, transmission and storage and distribution companies in the US and represents more than 20% of the US natural gas value chain.
Through the efforts of Coalition members, ONE Future has surpassed its 1% goal in each of the four years that it has reported its methane intensity. The 2021 Methane Intensity Report, released in November 2021, registered an intensity level of 0.424% (vs the 2025 goal of 1.0%), beating its 1% goal by 58%. This means that methane emissions by Coalition members across the natural gas value chain consisted of only about one-third of 1% of all natural gas produced and delivered, demonstrating that the natural gas industry can minimise methane emissions and increase production and throughput while supplying much needed energy to the US and around the globe for years to come.
