    United States : Pennsylvania-produced natural gas essential to national security, global climate goals

    May 3, 2022 - TendersInfo - News


      American Petroleum Institute Pennsylvania (API PA) Executive Director Stephanie Catarino Wissman released the following statement for Earth Day, April 22:

      No other nation has cut carbon dioxide emissions more than the U.S. since 2000, thanks in part to the shift to cleaner natural gas as a source of electricity generation and Pennsylvanias abundant supply of shale gas. Our industry is investing and prioritizing breakthrough technologies with initiatives like The Environmental Partnership to provide cleaner, reliable and affordable energy around the world. American energy leadership not only can help provide stability and security but also further global environmental progress.

      As the second-top producer of natural gas in the nation, Pennsylvania energy is transforming the country and the world in the following ways:

      In 2019, federal estimates show that natural gas from Pennsylvanias Marcellus and Utica Shale has been shipped out to 20 different countries.

      By exporting cleaner natural gas in the form of LNG we can meet the dual challenge of powering a growing population while lowering greenhouse gas emissions.

      Average methane intensity declined by nearly 60 percent across key U.S. producing regions, including Appalachia, between 2011 and 2020, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Energy Information Administration data.

      API Pennsylvania is a division of API, which represents all segments of Americas natural gas and oil industry supporting more than 11 million U.S. jobs and is backed by a growing grassroots movement of millions of Americans. Our nearly 600 members produce, process and distribute the majority of the nations energy, and participate in API Energy Excellence, which is accelerating environmental and safety progress by fostering new technologies and transparent reporting. API was formed in 1919 as a standards-setting organization and has developed more than 700 standards to enhance operational and environmental safety, efficiency and sustainability.
