Environmental Highlights



GHG Reduction Commitments and Goals

Since 2000, Targa has been a member company of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Natural Gas STAR Program, a voluntary partnership between the EPA and oil and gas companies to reduce methane emissions.

In 2021, we committed to the ONE Future 2025 methane intensity goals, including:

  • Reducing our methane intensity to 0.08% for our gathering and boosting segment
  • Reducing our methane intensity to 0.11% for our processing segment

In addition to methane intensity, we are focused on reducing flaring from our operations and helping our exploration and production (E&P) partners and downstream customers meet their flaring and GHG intensity targets.

Environmental Programs

Our environmental programs are designed to minimize the impact of our business on the environment and our local communities. We are focused on reducing our emissions, managing our water use, minimizing waste, reducing spills, protecting biodiversity, and practicing effective land stewardship. We prioritize meeting and, where feasible, exceeding, regulatory requirements, and all employees share responsibility for ensuring compliance.

Low Carbon Energy Ventures

In 2021, Targa formed a Low Carbon Energy Ventures team that is actively working on carbon capture and sequestration projects, pursuing economically viable renewable energy initiatives and partnerships, and working with industry peers to evaluate options for hydrogen fuels.

Renewable power sources like wind and solar offer the midstream business an opportunity to reduce both criteria pollutant emissions and GHG emissions from our assets. We have several ongoing energy initiatives that help improve our energy efficiency.
