April 21, 2021 – Our Nation’s Energy Future (ONE Future) today announced that BKV Corporation (BKV) has joined the Coalition. BKV is a privately held natural gas exploration & production company that seeks to invest in attractive upstream oil and gas opportunities in North America with the goal of creating long-term sustainable value in the energy industry.
“BKV has grown rapidly to become a top-20 natural gas producer in the United States and we are proud to have them as a member of the coalition,” said Richard Hyde, Executive Director, ONE Future. “BKV is committed to safety, environmental stewardship, and actively engaging in the communities where they operate, and membership with ONE Future will enhance these commitments tenfold.”
The ONE Future Coalition is a group of 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 15% of the U.S. natural gas value chain. As a ONE Future member, BKV will report its 2020 methane results as part of the production sector and hold a seat on the board of directors.
“BKV is proud of its transparency with all of its stakeholders,” said Chris Kalnin, CEO, BKV Corporation. “We are a company that is intentionally focused on technical innovation, operational and ESG excellence, and capital discipline. Our membership with ONE Future is one important step in our ESG journey, and we are proud to be a part of this coalition of like-minded peers who are committed to reducing our impact on the environment.”
Through the efforts of coalition members, ONE Future has surpassed its one percent goal in each of the three years that it has reported its methane intensity. The 2019 Methane Intensity Report, released in November 2020, registered a 2019 methane intensity number of 0.334%: beating its one percent goal by 67%. This means that methane emissions by coalition members across the natural gas value chain consisted of only about one-third 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.
