Gas Pathways

Canadian energy infrastructure company TC Energy said October 17 it had made its first foray into renewable natural gas (RNG) with a C$29.3mn (US$21.2mn) investment into an RNG facility at the iconic Jack Daniels Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee.

Owned by Lynchburg Renewable Fuels, the facility will produce RNG with a carbon intensity score 50% lower than traditional natural gas, preventing about 16,000 mt/yr of CO2 emissions. The project is being developed by 3 Rivers Energy Partners, which is also an owner in Lynchburg Renewable Fuels, and is expected to be operational in 2024.

Feedstock is a byproduct of the Jack Daniels distilling process, broken down to generate methane gases. A biogas upgrade plant will remove contaminants to produce pipeline-quality RNG that will be directly connected to a local natural gas utility. Liquid fertiliser will also be produced for local agricultural markets.


BP (BP.L) will buy U.S.-based renewable natural gas (RNG) producer Archaea Energy Inc (LFG.N) for about $4.1 billion, the companies said on Monday, as the British energy major seeks to expand its alternative fuels business.

The deal will be the largest ever RNG acquisition, topping Chevron Corp’s (CVX.N) $3.15 billion buyout of biodiesel maker Renewable Energy Group Inc earlier this year.

The past few years have seen much ado about ESG — shorthand for “environmental, social, and governance,” a trio of non-financial factors that have become priorities for the public, investors, and regulators. But as ESG has begun to shift from a talking point to a regulatory mandate, consensus has given way to controversy, polarizing debate over its very definition, reliability, and benefit.

The latest quarterly Net-Zero Tracker published by MSCI, a leading provider of critical decision support tools and services for the global investment community, reinforces the urgent action required from the world’s listed companies to meet the 1.5°C target set by the Paris Agreement. All listed companies must each reduce their total carbon intensity by 8-10% every year until 2050 if the 1.5°C target is to be met. Only 39% of companies reduced emission intensity by that amount between 2019 and 2020.
