EQT Corp. announced Jan. 14 that it has certified a majority of its natural gas production under both the EO100 Standard for Responsible Energy Development, which focuses on ESG performance and MiQ methane standard. EQT's certified natural gas production now comprises 4.5% of all natural gas produced in the U.S., making EQT not only the nation's largest natural gas producer, but also the nation's largest producer of certified natural gas.

EQT received both certifications in November, and the first block of the company's certified natural gas is now available for trading on MiQ's Digital Registry. According to the company, the certifications provide a transparent, verified method for tracking EQT's ESG commitments, which include achieving net zero Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and reducing EQT's methane emissions intensity by 65% by 2025.
