Next Gen Natural Gas

Williams has established the industry’s first next generation natural gas certification process across all segments of the value chain from production through gathering, processing and transmission.

By leveraging block-chain secured technology to track and measure end-to-end emissions Williams has developed a comprehensive next gen natural gas platform to bring greater trust, transparency and transactability to the certified gas market through the aggregation and reconciliation of multiple sources of data to provide a path-specific methane intensity certification that meets or exceeds industry leading measurement protocols.

Through its Sequent Energy Management business, Williams is building a marketing platform to sell trusted low-carbon and net-zero next gen natural gas to utilities, LNG export facilities and other clean energy users with the goal of helping customers reduce emissions and meet their climate commitments. 

What is Next Gen Gas?

Williams defines “next gen gas” as natural gas that has been securely tracked and independently certified as having low emissions across all segments of the value chain. The term encompasses and goes beyond responsibly sourced natural gas, which is natural gas that has been verified at the production site as meeting certain environmental standards and practices.
