Virginia Natural Gas Signs Deal for Next Generation Natural Gas
Virginia Natural Gas (VNG) is aiming to be the first natural gas utility in America to provide its customers with natural gas that is 100% sourced, transported and distributed by companies that have pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to less than 1% across the natural gas value chain. VNG announced a deal to source a large percentage of its annual gas consumption from these companies starting this year.
VNG has begun purchasing 1/5 of its customers’ annual natural gas supply from select wells operated by Southwestern Energy (SWN). VNG and SWN are founding members of Our Nation’s Energy Future (ONE Future), a natural gas industry-led organization that is dedicated to voluntarily achieving meaningful reductions in methane emissions across the natural gas supply chain.
