ENB #57 We talk with Bear Givhan, CEO, Earthview, about Certified Gas as part of the mosaic of attacking methane emissions

The sky is blue, water is wet, and there is no ESG without accountability.*

It is fun to talk about the solution side of ESG rather than complaining. The oil and gas industry has taken huge strides in the last decade to improve its carbon footprint. In the U.S. and Canada, we are the cleanest energy-producing countries on the planet. It is a fact and not a pipe dream.

I have a blast talking with Bear Givhan, CEO, Earthview, about Certified Gas and the tools energy companies need to measure their performance towards their ESG goals and commitments.

Earthview has a very clear definition of Certified Gas in a paper Here.

Another fun thing about our discussion is seeing Bear’s passion to help make the industry even better. Please connect and follow Bear on his journey to help solve the problem on his LinkedIn Here.

Also would like to give a shout-out to James Constas, President at the Prism Group, for sponsoring today’s episode. Connect with James on his LinkedIn Here

The sky is blue, water is wet, and there is no ESG without accountability.* The Stu Turley version of the Joe Hallenbeck quote from The Last Boyscout.


What, exactly, is Certified Gas and how is it different?

Certified gas is natural gas for which an independent third-party attests to the technical and environmental standards present at the wellhead and processing facilities.  Factors examined include, but are not limited to, air emissions, well integrity, processing facilities, water quality, land disruption, and local community impact.  Those facilities achieving high operational and environmental standards, minimizing the environmental and social impacts of their operations, qualify as producing “certified gas”.
