According to the new report, participants continue to make significant progress across six environmental performance programs including reducing flaring, replacing gas-driven pneumatic controllers with low- or zero-emitting devices and reducing leak occurrence rates.
“Oil and natural gas is the lifeblood of the American economy and today’s announcement shows the steadfast commitment by the industry to meet our energy needs while at the same time being good stewards of our environment,” said Todd Staples, president of the Texas Oil & Gas Association. “The Partnership has continued to grow while making significant strides in emissions reductions, such a 45% reduction in flare intensity and 26% reduction in total flare volumes from the previous year though the adoption of best practices and new innovations that together will help ensure a cleaner, stronger energy future.”
The Environmental Partnership is comprised of companies in the U.S. oil and natural gas industry committed to continuously improving the industry’s environmental performance. It includes companies of all sizes, including many of the country’s major oil and natural gas producers.
