Tennessee Gas Pipeline Announces New Responsibly Sourced Natural Gas Supply Aggregation Pooling Service

First to offer service and further demonstrates commitment to lower-carbon future

Tennessee Gas Pipeline (TGP), a subsidiary of Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE: KMI) today filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) a proposal to implement a responsibly sourced natural gas (RSG) supply aggregation pooling service at select locations across the TGP system. RSG is third-party certified natural gas that meets certain environmental, social and governance standards, particularly related to methane emission reductions. The proposed service is designed to enable suppliers and customers on TGP to purchase and sell RSG supply at non-physical trading locations, ultimately serving end-users, utilities, power plants and LNG facilities connected to the TGP system. Producers who have already obtained RSG certifications from qualified third-party organizations are anticipated to supply the RSG needed for the proposed pooling service, and the supply is expected to grow as RSG becomes the fuel of choice among customers. Pending regulatory approval from the FERC, this service is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2022.

“We are pleased that TGP is the first pipeline system to offer this RSG supply aggregation pooling service,” said TGP’s Vice President of Commercial Ernesto Ochoa. “We believe this lower methane intensity fuel is an essential component of the energy transition, and TGP is uniquely positioned to be the transporter of choice because of its connectivity to key basins and end-users. We are excited to continue to work with current and future customers to encourage the delivery of RSG supply into our systems and pursue new ways to facilitate the availability of these molecules to the market.”
