Williams and PennEnergy Resources, LLC announced they have entered into an agreement to support the marketing and delivery of certified, low emissions next gen natural gas. The agreement includes an independent, third-party certification process that verifies best practices are being followed to minimize emissions and produce natural gas in the most environmentally responsible manner. Through its Sequent business, Williams is building a marketing portfolio to sell low-carbon next gen gas to utilities, LNG export facilities and other clean energy users.
The agreement with PennEnergy builds on Williams' strategy to gather, market and transport low-carbon natural gas from well-head to end-user. Williams recently entered a partnership with decarbonization technology provider Context Labs, as well as a collaboration with Cheniere Energy, Inc. to implement quantification, monitoring, reporting and verification (QMRV) of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at natural gas gathering, processing, transmission, and storage systems. In addition to pursuing next gen natural gas solutions, Williams is developing clean hydrogen, CCUS, solar and renewable natural gas projects as part of its focus on commercializing innovative technologies, markets and business models that support a clean energy economy.
