Thomas Russo of Russo Energy LLC, recently published a new white paper describing how the U.S. natural gas and LNG industries can benefit in the transition to a carbon-neutral future by embracing a narrative of “responsibly sourced gas (RSG).”
Russo notes the urgency: “It’s time for the industries and individual companies to shelve slogans and take action to distinguish US natural gas from other global sources by embracing a narrative of ‘responsibly sourced gas (RSG).’ To do otherwise increases the risk that natural gas and LNG will fall victim to the growing movement to decarbonize the heating, power and transportation sectors via an all electrification strategy.
The paper further describes the importance of continuous monitoring and independent certification of responsible operations to provide legitimacy to the RSG strategy.
