-Natural Gas Coalition membership reaches 28-
September 9, 2020 – HOUSTON, TX – Our Nation’s Energy Future (ONE Future) announced today that Encino Acquisition Partners (Encino), has joined the coalition; bringing the total number of member companies to 28.
As a ONE Future member, Encino will report yearly methane emission reduction results as part of the production sector in the annual report, as well as hold a seat on the ONE Future Board of Directors. The 2018 Methane Intensity Report was released in the Fall of 2019; the coalition registered a 2018 methane intensity number of 0.326%. This was a decrease of 41% from 2017 – demonstrating that the natural gas industry can minimize methane emissions and increase production and throughput.
“Encino has a strong commitment to its stakeholders—employees, landowners, and communities—to operate safely, responsibly, and sustainably,” said Hardy Murchison, President and CEO, Encino. “We are proud of our emissions reductions efforts thus far, and membership with ONE Future will help us continue to deliver on this commitment.”
“Encino’s commitment to sustainable, safe and environmental conscientious operations aligns with our values and we are confident they will bring great value to the coalition, said Richard Hyde, Executive Director, ONE Future. “It’s exciting to see the growing commitment of the natural gas industry to reduce methane emissions all while supplying much needed clean, inexpensive and reliable energy to the U.S. and around the globe for years to come.”
