At Piñon Midstream, our ESG objectives align seamlessly with our corporate objectives due to the nature of our core business — removing and sequestering environmentally harmful gases. It’s what we do. 

Environmental

Our Commitment:

To develop natural gas treating solutions that remove and dispose of hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide which would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere

The objective of Piñon’s core business, sour gas treating, is to remove and dispose of harmful byproducts in natural gas, particularly CO2 and H2S. The company will pursue treating solutions that minimize our impact to the environment.

Company Objectives:

  • Track and report volumes of CO2 and H2S captured and sequestered by our facilities. Our goal is to become as effective as possible in this endeavor.
  • Employ a greenhouse gas (GHG) monitoring program as part of our routine.
  • Reduce flaring in the Delaware Basin by capturing and treating third-party volumes. Track and quantify the impact we have on flaring reduction in the basin.
  • Minimize the environmental impact of our plant.
  • Review our environmental track record and objectives with our board of directors on a quarterly basis.
  • Align our field personnel’s key performance indicators with fuel reduction, operational efficiency, and downtime reduction.

  • Pursue involvement in local nonprofit organizations through volunteerism.

Governance

Our Commitment:

Implement reporting and corporate governance guidelines that produce a transparent, well-defined structure that supports our ethical and business standards. Effectively communicate financial and operational risks to our board of directors and key stakeholders.
