ONE Future Issues RFP for Marginal Abatement Cost Study

June 26, 2024 – Our Nation’s Energy Future (ONE Future), a coalition of approximately 50 natural gas companies taking action to reduce methane emissions, is seeking proposals from qualified offerors to conduct a marginal abatement cost (“MAC”) study related to methane emissions prevention, detection, and abatement activities and technologies.

As part of its commitment to continuous improvement, ONE Future will use the results of the MAC study to help inform the coalition’s goal-setting with respect to its segment and supply chain targets for methane emissions after 2025. Through completion of this study, ONE Future hopes to further understand the opportunity for its members (and other operators) to add materially to cost-effective methane emissions reductions through innovative technologies, considering its work to date in achieving a value chain methane emissions intensity well below its 1.0% target for six consecutive years.

Qualified offerors are encouraged to express interest, ask questions and request clarifications in writing via email no later than Monday, July 8 at 5:00 P.M. EDT. Any questions/requests for clarifications will be addressed in a pre-proposal addendum anticipated to be issued to interested offerors by Friday, July 12. All proposals are due by Wednesday, July 17, 2024 at 11:59 PM EDT. All expressions of interest and questions should be directed to Jim Kibler, Executive Director at [email protected].

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 nearly 50 companies accounting for some of the largest natural gas producers, transmission, and distribution companies in the U.S. ONE Future members operate in 25 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
