More than two dozen members of the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America recently affirmed their commitment to minimize methane emissions from transmission and storage facilities through a series of voluntary pledges. Companies including Cheniere Energy Inc., Dominion Energy, Enbridge Inc., Kinder Morgan Inc., NextEra Energy Resources, Oneok Inc. and TransCanada Corp. said they would minimize emissions from interstate natural gas pipelines and pneumatic controllers; minimize emissions from natural gas storage and compressor stations; and develop effective practices and information sharing protocols related to detecting and reducing methane emissions. The companies signed off on a series of commitments, agreeing to install air-driven, low-bleed or intermittent pneumatic controllers; minimize emissions during maintenance, repair and replacement of pipelines; replace rod packing on all transmission and storage reciprocating compressors; and more.
