MIDLAND– February 24, 2022 – Our Nation’s Energy Future (“ONE Future”) today 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 & Boosting, Processing, Transmission & 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 & boosting, processing, transmission & storage and distribution companies in the U.S. and represents more than 20% of the U.S. natural gas value chain.
Through the efforts of coalition members, ONE Future has surpassed its one percent 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% (versus the 2025 goal of 1.0%), beating its one percent goal by 58%. This means that methane emissions by coalition members across the natural gas value chain consisted of less than one-half of one percent of all natural gas produced and delivered, demonstrating that the natural gas industry can minimize methane emissions and increase production and throughput while supplying much-needed energy to the U.S. and around the globe for years to come.

About ONE Future
ONE Future was formed when seven 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 more than 50 companies accounting for some of the largest natural gas producers, transmission, and distribution companies in the U.S. ONE Future members operate in 16 out of the 38 production basins and have distribution operations in 36 out of the 50 states, other segments of the value chain operate in multiple regions of the country as well. Therefore, ONE Future’s data represent a geographically diverse and material share of the U.S. natural gas supply chain. For more information visit Home | One Future.
