Williams was one of six pipeline companies who joined the Environmental Defense Fund in sponsoring a study released by Colorado State University this week on methane emissions from the natural gas transmission and storage sector.
The study is one of the most comprehensive evaluations of the topic to date. This collaborative effort between industry, academia and an environmental group, highlights that industry has made great strides in reducing methane releases with new technology and improved pipeline integrity and maintenance programs. However, it also points out that there is still improvement that can be made.
