National Fuel Gas Midstream Company, has achieved certification of 100% of its natural gas gathering system assets, which transport over 1.2 billion cubic feet of natural gas daily, under Equitable Origin’s EO100™ Standard for Responsible Energy Development, a series of rigorous environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance targets.

Midstream is the first gathering or midstream company and second National Fuel subsidiary to earn EO100™ Standard certification, joining Seneca Resources Company, LLC, which previously achieved certification of 100% of its natural gas production under the EO100TM Standard in early 2022.

As part of the certification process, a team of accredited auditors from Geosyntec, conducted an independent, third-party audit of Midstream’s operations to assess its alignment to the five principles of the EO100™ Standard.

The principles include corporate governance and ethics, social impacts, human rights and community engagement, Indigenous Peoples’ rights, occupational health, safety and fair labour standards, and environmental impacts, biodiversity and climate change. A thorough examination of Midstream’s documented programmes, a field assessment of its operations and more than 40 interviews with internal and external stakeholders comprised audit activities.

Jason Switzer, CEO Equitable Origin, said,” We are pleased to acknowledge NFG Midstream’s leadership in certifying 100% of its assets to the EO100 Standard and in pioneering its application to the gathering business. They have raised the bar for ESG performance through this certification across their operations in Pennsylvania.”

“Midstream is proud to set this industry milestone as the first gathering operator to earn EO100 certification, which reaffirms our commitment to implement best practices related to ESG standards throughout our Appalachian Basin operations,” said Justin Loweth, President of National Fuel Gas Midstream Company, LLC. “We see this achievement as a step forward in our efforts to promote sustainability across our operations, transporting responsibly sourced energy to interconnections with pipelines that serve key commercial markets and end users.”
