Natural gas certification
Certifying natural gas to validate methane emission reductions
Our work to certify natural gas produced at a number of our Permian Basin facilities in New Mexico is based on rigorous, third-party criteria established by nonprofit MiQ. The certification process provides more transparent and consistent assessment of methane intensity, detection technology and emission mitigation practices. Certification allows us to independently validate efforts to reduce methane emissions, which are a key component of our roadmap to net-zero emissions (Scopes 1 and 2) in the Permian Basin by 2030. The company is currently expanding certification to natural gas production in Appalachia and assessing other opportunities across our assets.
