Southwestern Energy, Uniper Ink Supply Agreement for Responsibly Sourced Gas

(PG&J) — Southwestern Energy Co., the largest dual-basin natural gas producer in the U.S., has entered a multiyear, certified Responsibly Sourced Gas (RSG) sales agreement with the North American subsidiary of Uniper, one of Germany’s largest publicly listed energy supply companies.

As part of the agreement, SWN will supply Uniper with RSG for its U.S. midstream gas portfolio that includes domestic distribution to downstream customers as well as natural gas to supply U.S. facilities for liquefaction and export to global LNG markets. RSG is a distinct natural gas classification that is verified for low-emission attributes and environmentally responsible production. The agreement represents the first RSG transaction for Uniper in the United States and its second in North America.

“Southwestern Energy is strategically positioned to supply the world’s growing energy demands with its responsibly sourced gas,” Bill Way, Southwestern Energy president and CEO, said. “We believe natural gas is foundational to a low carbon future, and that U.S. natural gas in particular plays a vital role in supporting global energy supply and security. This agreement further demonstrates SWN’s differentiated position to reliably deliver responsibly sourced gas both here at home and abroad.”

SWN is a leading natural gas producer in the U.S., producing responsibly sourced gas from its operations in the Appalachia and Haynesville Basins. Its natural gas already reaches global markets through its existing transportation and firm sales agreements, including approximately 1.5 Bcf per day currently sold to liquefiers. Additionally, as an industry leading ESG performer, SWN is deploying continuous emissions monitors at each pad location to further improve and validate its emissions performance.

“Transparency in energy production practices is a growing market interest, and agreements like this one are key to deploying responsibly sourced solutions for customers in the U.S. and abroad,” Marc Merrill, president and CEO for Uniper in North America, said. “Southwestern Energy’s reputation as a first-mover in RSG makes it a valued supplier in assisting our customers achieve their critical supply objectives in a responsible manner.”
