EagleClaw Midstream achieves ESG milestones
EagleClaw Midstream announced on Jan. 13 that it has achieved several milestone ESG goals including sourcing 100% of its required electricity from renewable energy sources beginning April 1, 2021.
EagleClaw Midstream is the largest privately-owned midstream services provider in the Delaware Basin and operates a supersystem comprised of three interconnected natural gas processing complexes representing 1.3 Bcf/day of processing capacity.
The agreement to use 100% renewable energy sources "is one initiative within our broader sustainability plan to reshape how we operate, to limit our impact on the environment, to make our workplace even safer and to deepen our stakeholder relationships," Jamie Welch, president and CEO of EagleClaw Midstream, said in a statement.
Welch noted the agreement will ensure that the company has a reliable, secure, and cost-effective source of renewable energy for the foreseeable future. For the company's customers, this creates tremendous adjunct benefits as it materially reduces overall indirect ("Scope 2") emissions in providing natural gas gathering and processing services for their production.
EagleClaw Midstream is the first major gathering and processing company in the Permian Basin to procure 100% of its power for its operations from renewable energy sources. It also has established and implemented an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) program across its operations. Over the past 12 months, the statement noted, the company's focus has been keeping its workplace safe and secure for employees because of the impact of the pandemic and to support its communities' needs directly associated with hardships from COVID-19.
