Jonah Energy Joins United Nations Oil and Gas Methane Partnership

First U.S. based company to join global partnership and complete reporting protocol.

Jonah Energy has taken the industry-leading step of becoming the first U.S. oil and gas producer to submit methane emissions data and is on track to earn a “Gold Standard” emissions rating from the United Nations-sponsored Oil and Gas Methane Partnership (OGMP). Jonah Energy was also the first U.S. company to join OGMP in late 2020.

 The Oil and Gas Methane Partnership (OGMP) is an initiative launched by the UN Environment Programme and the Climate and Clean Air Coalition as the only broad multi-national and multi-stakeholder partnership working on methane emissions measurement and reporting protocols. OGMP creates a credible platform to help member companies demonstrate actual emission reductions. 

OGMP’s Gold Standard rating is predicated on establishing a pathway to verified emissions measurement at both a source and an overall site level. Measurement is conducted with a variety of technologies, including ground-based fixed measurement devices, drone-based sensors, aerial laser scanning, and satellite-based asset-wide measurement. These tools provide a far more accurate accounting of a company’s emissions profile, allowing for continuous reduction and elimination of emission sources. 

Jonah Energy is an oil and gas exploration and development company headquartered in Denver, Colorado and operating in the Jonah and Pinedale Fields in Sublette County, Wyoming. The company is one of the largest privately held natural gas producers in the US and focuses on producing natural gas in an environmentally responsible manner.
