Enstor strives to be a responsible steward of the environment and minimize the potential environmental impact of our footprint. We employ best practices and manage all environmental risks and events with transparency.
Enstor recently joined the ONE Future Coalition, which consists of a group of natural gas companies working together to voluntarily reduce methane emissions across the natural gas value chain to 1% or less by 2025.
To reduce our environmental impacts and increase operational efficiency, an Environmental Management System Manual (EMSM) that aligns with the ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Standard. The EMSM applies to facility operations pertaining to the injection, withdrawal and storage of natural gas and our corporate office. To ensure that the system functions as designed, Enstor provides EMSM training to employees at all of its facilities.
Our team conducts meticulous and frequent inspections to identify containment deficiencies. As a result, Enstor experienced zero reportable spill events to the environment and zero reportable spill volumes in calendar years 2018, 2019, and 2020.
Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and other pollutants can have significant, localized human health and environmental impacts. Enstor completed Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions inventories at all of its facilities. While our primary sources of emissions have declined between 2018 and 2020, we recorded a modest increase in methane emissions between 2019 and 2020. Enstor’s improved GHG emissions performance in 2020 reflects both corrections to our methodology and tracking systems as well as routine facility upgrades.
We strive to continually identify opportunities to reduce our energy consumption and environmental impacts.
