GHG Emissions

Below, Antero provides our direct GHG emissions, GHG emission intensity, total methane emissions and methane leak/loss rate for the previous three years. Antero is proud to point out that although we saw growth in our operations from 2017 to 2018, Antero Resources and Antero Midstream both saw a reduction in their GHG intensity. We believe this is a direct result of our continued commitment to GHG emission reduction practices.

1. Total GHG emissions are based on emissions reported to the EPA under Subpart W of the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule Program (GHGRP).
2. The GHG intensity ratio is calculated by dividing the kg of CO2e reported to the EPA under subpart W by MMBTU produced.
3. The methane leak/loss rate is calculated by dividing methane emitted by the methane produced. This value is ONE Future verified and will be published once it’s available.
