Safety and environmental responsibility
As we expand our presence in the Permian, safety and environmental responsibility remain paramount. Our continued aim is to conduct our business operations in a safe, environmentally responsible manner that minimizes our environmental footprint and allows each employee and contractor to leave work in the same safe manner in which they came to work.
In 2017, XTO implemented a methane management program to mitigate emissions associated with our operations. Through the program XTO has made significant progress in reducing emissions across our operations.
In April 2018, XTO began a pilot program at our James Ranch facility in New Mexico to evaluate new technologies in our efforts to reduce emissions. The facility incorporates low-emission technologies and will serve as a model for future development. Learn about the low-emission technologies we're using at our facilities in the Permian Basin.
