Pacific Canbriam Energy, an Alberta producer that operates exclusively in the B.C. Montney formation, recently received certification from Equitable Origin, which provides ESG certification for energy companies. The certification was part of what is being billed as the “first-ever” responsibly sourced gas supply agreement in Canada, under which the Quebec natural gas utility, Energir, will source natural gas from Pacific Canbriam.

The certification considers all ESG metrics, and one of them is greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity… Under the agreement signed with Energir, a service provided by Xpansiv uses real-time data to identify the physical gas from Pacific Canbriam to produce a digital certificate that verifies that the gas Energir receives matches the gas shipped from its EO100-certified suppliers.
