May 5, 2021, – Our Nation’s Energy Future (ONE Future) today announced that Targa Resources Corp. (NYSE: TRGP) (“Targa” or the “Company”) has joined the Coalition. Targa is a leading provider of midstream services and is one of the largest independent midstream infrastructure companies in North America.
“Targa prides itself in delivering reliable energy to its customers safely and in a sustainable manner,” said Richard Hyde, Executive Director, ONE Future. “Targa is pleased to join the ONE Future coalition and looks forward to industry collaboration and innovation towards meeting the ONE Future methane goals.”
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, Targa will report its 2020 methane results within the Gathering & Boosting, Processing, and Transmission & Storage sectors. Targa will also hold a seat on the board of directors.
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.
