Who Is ONE Future?
ONE Future Coalition is a group of natural gas companies working together to voluntarily reduce methane emissions across the natural gas supply chain, with a goal to lower emissions to 1% by 2025. We are a unique coalition of leading companies who recognize that excessive methane emissions can potentially erode the benefits of natural gas relative to other fossil fuels and therefore prudent development and operations are vital to ensuring the industry can support the energy needs of the nation and the world in a sustainable manner, even in a low carbon economy. With operations across every part of the natural gas value chain, we are focused on identifying policy and technical solutions that yield continuous improvement in the management of methane emissions associated with the production, processing, transmission and distribution of natural gas.
ONE Future was formed when eight companies came together in 2014 with a focus to collectively achieve a science-based average rate of methane emissions across our facilities equivalent to one percent (or less) of total natural gas production. Since our formation, we have grown to 16 companies accounting for the some of the largest natural gas producers, transmission and distribution companies in the U.S. ONE Future members operate in 11 out of the 19 production basins and other segments of the value chain operate in multiple regions of the country, hence ONE Future’s data represent a geographically diverse and material share of the U.S. natural gas supply chain. Its members include Antero Resources, Apache, Berkshire Hathaway Pipeline Group, BHP, Dominion Energy, Equinor (formerly StatOil), EQT, Hess, Kinder Morgan, National Grid, New Jersey Natural Gas, Noble Energy, Southern Company Gas, Southwestern Energy, Summit Utilities, and TransCanada.
Using uniform, EPA-approved reporting protocols, the coalition registered a 2017 methane intensity number of 0.552%, well ahead of its goal to reach 1% by 2025. These numbers have been independently reviewed by the National Energy Technology Laboratory (a laboratory of the US DOE). Although we have surpassed our original goal, member companies will continue to work towards reducing emissions to improve the quality of life for all, and for a sustainable energy future.
