Natural Gas STAR Program Accomplishments
Natural Gas STAR Partners have operations in all major industry segments (production, gathering and processing, transmission, and distribution) that deliver natural gas to end users.
Each year, Partners submit annual reports documenting their previous year’s methane emission reduction activities. Since the inception of the Program, as of Loading , Partners have eliminated Loading of methane emissions by implementing Loading cost-effective technologies and practices.
In Loading , partners' voluntary activities resulted in emissions reductions of Loading for the year. These methane emission reductions have cross-cutting benefits for domestic energy supply, industrial efficiency, revenue generation, improved air quality, and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Partners' Loading emission reductions are equivalent to additional revenue of approximately $Loading in natural gas sales (assumes an average natural gas price of $Loading per thousand cubic feet, based on the average of daily Henry Hub Natural Gas Spot Prices in Loading , rounded to the nearest dollar).
Use this interactive page to explore data on the activities implemented by Partners to reduce methane emissions from their operations. The data was last updated Loading and may be different from the data that was reported in the selected year.
