Enverus Intelligence Research, a part of Enverus, the leading global energy data analytics and SaaS technology company, has released a new report covering responsibly sourced natural gas (RSG) aimed at answering questions around the certification process and analysing the potential market size.
“Roughly 90%, or 18.6 billion ft3/d, of estimated 2022 RSG volumes were announced in 2021, highlighting the significant increase in producer interest in the RSG space over the past year. As we move into 2022, we expect to see expanding midstream certification along with more development surrounding the marketing of RSG,” said John Gutentag, associate at Enverus Intelligence Research.
Key takeaways from the report:
- Supply of producer-certified RSG is expected to grow from 8.7 billion ft3/d in 2021 to about 20 billion ft3/d by the end of 2022 based on announced projects, or about 18% of the North American market.
- Enverus sees producers’ RSG commitments principally driven by a desire to demonstrate environmental credibility, not an expectation of higher prices for this gas in the near term.
- MiQ and Equitable Origin co-certify 42% of RSG volumes, driven by large basin-wide partnerships spread across three producers. Project Canary is the most active with a 38% market share across 13 partnerships and an additional seven announced pilot projects.
- CHK, EQT, SWN and CRK lead the pack with the highest estimated RSG volumes across the industry and combined will supply 70% of estimated year-end 2022 volumes. CTRA, TOU, Ascent, CNX and Aethon are the largest predominantly-gas operators with no RSG announcements to date.
