GreenGasUSA is pleased to announce a strategic collaboration with TC Energy (TSX, NYSE: TRP) to explore the development of a network of natural gas transportation hubs, including renewable natural gas (RNG). These hubs are anticipated to provide centralized access to existing energy transportation infrastructure for renewable natural gas sources, such as farms, wastewater treatment facilities and landfills
Development of these hubs are a critical step to accelerate methane capture projects and thus the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
The anticipated benefits of this collaboration include:
- Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by providing cost-effective market access to RNG developers
- Increasing equitable participation of diverse biogas sources in renewable energy markets
- Increasing energy resilience and independence with an emphasis on natural gas and renewables
- Offering customers more innovative solutions, economic viability and carbon-neutral energy opportunities
Combining GreenGasUSA’s extensive experience in gas compression, virtual pipeline transportation and pipeline injection with TC Energy’s vast energy infrastructure is expected to further increase methane capture and provide energy users access to renewable fuels. These hubs are expected to be under development in several states within the coming years, with the first hub targeted for in-service in the second quarter of 2023.
“GreenGasUSA is proud to partner with TC Energy to create a renewable energy ecosystem. Our goal is to capture as much methane from agricultural, industrial and wastewater sources as humanly possible. These aggregation hubs are critical to making the planet greener by connecting sources of renewable gas to energy consumers that are serious about decarbonization and displacing fossil fuels. One of the most rewarding components of this project is enabling smaller farms and RNG projects to participate in the green energy revolution who would otherwise be locked out of this market for lack of access to end users, said Marc Fetten, Owner of GreenGasUSA.
“As we continue to find innovative energy solutions for current and future customers, we value strategic collaboration opportunities like this one with GreenGasUSA to transport renewable natural gas,” said Stanley G. Chapman III, TC Energy’s Executive Vice President and President, U.S. & Mexico Natural Gas. “We have embraced the growing role of RNG in our industry and continue to explore ways to optimize our existing U.S. pipeline system in a collaborative, safe and sustainable manner.”
GreenGasUSA provides low- and zero-emitting energy solutions to industrial, commercial and residential users committed to reducing their environmental footprint. This includes operation of a virtual pipeline fleet for CNG and RNG across the U.S.; production of RNG from a variety of waste sources; as well as pipeline injection services. GreenGasUSA owns and operates renewable gas natural production facilities and pipeline injection points across the US.
GreenGasUSA is privately held by Marc Fetten and based in Charleston, SC.
