Air

  • Founding member of Our Nation’s Energy (ONE) Future coalition, a group of 16 companies working to reduce methane emissions across the natural gas value chain
  • Consistently out-perform stated ONE Future enterprise-wide Methane Intensity target of 0.36%; most recent assessment in 2019 showed rate of 0.056%
  • In 2019, we conducted Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) surveys on 100% of our operating facilities and our methane intensity remains a fraction of the national average
  • Focused on facilities optimization, reducing emissions while increasing operational efficiencies
  • We included a Climate Change Scenario Analysis as of July 2018 in our Corporate Responsibility Report

Water

  • For the fourth year in a row, we have been fresh water neutral—meaning we restore more freshwater within local watersheds, via conservation projects, than we use in our operations
  • Over 11 billion gallons of freshwater have been returned to the environment since 2014, through 10 conservation projects in 4 different states. In 2020, we will return 2.4 billion gallons of freshwater in Pennsylvania and West Virginia
  • We received the highest score among North America’s 30 largest publicly-traded oil and gas producers in “Disclosing the Facts 2019: Transparency and Risk in Water & Chemicals Management for Hydraulic Fracturing Operations”, a report released by advocacy groups As You Sow and Boston Common Asset Management

Safety

  • Removed 1.3 million truckloads of water off the roadways since 2010 by installing water pipelines to support Appalachia operations
  • Our safety emphasis has lead to a 52% reduction in our Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) since 2014, and we strive to continue to improve year over year
