July 7, 2023 – ONE Future, a coalition of more than 50 natural gas companies taking action to reduce methane emissions, issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Environment Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposal to amend the Petroleum and Natural Gas Systems source category (subpart W) of the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program.
“ONE Future welcomes the EPA’s proposal to update methane emissions reporting with a greater use of extrinsic data,” ONE Future Executive Director Jim Kibler said. “Since ONE Future’s founding nearly a decade ago, our member companies have advocated for better science and more accuracy around measuring methane emissions to inform our allocation of resources. With a consistent, credible approach to data measurement, companies can ensure the natural gas produced and delivered to consumers is the cleanest energy possible. We look forward to working with the EPA on their final proposal.”
About ONE Future: ONE Future was formed when seven companies came together in 2014 with a focus to collectively achieve a science-based average methane intensity across our facilities equivalent to one percent or less. 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 39 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 value chain. For more information visit onefuture.us.
