ONE Future welcomes WBI Energy

Our Nation’s Energy Future (ONE Future) has announced that WBI Energy, Inc. has joined the Coalition. WBI Energy delivers natural gas to local distribution companies, such as natural gas utilities that serve homes, businesses and industrial facilities that use natural gas to fuel their operations. WBI Energy will report its methane intensity results under ONE Future’s Transportation & Storage sector.

“The Coalition is proud to welcome WBI Energy as our newest member,” said Jim Kibler, Executive Director, ONE Future. “WBI Energy’s tenured history of pipeline safety will be an excellent asset to our members, and we look forward to both the information that they can share with us and the knowledge we can impart to them.”

“We focus constantly on ensuring the integrity of our pipeline system, from the quality of materials we purchase to inspections and maintenance after construction,” said Jeff Rust, Executive Vice President of Operations for WBI Energy. “We are excited to join ONE Future. Our membership will help take our pipeline integrity to the next level and help ensure that we minimise emissions.”

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 less than one half 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.
