Wherever we operate, we strive to conduct our business with attention to the environment and take our commitment to fulfill the requirements of all federal, state, and local agencies very seriously. Our commitment extends through all aspects of each project and is a focus in our day-to-day business operations. Construction, operations and maintenance practices are designed not only to serve the interests of our customers, communities and employees, but also to protect the environment.
We evaluate renewable energy as a source of power in our operations, specifically to power our offices and various activities at our plant locations. The vast majority of gas measurement and sampling is currently powered entirely from solar. We work with vendors to utilize various technologies to reduce our electricity consumption where the opportunity presents itself.
We strive to limit the amount of natural gas flared on our system and by our customers at the wellhead. To minimize gas flaring, we offer system interconnectivity, redundancy and market optionality which helps our customers to limit production curtailment and reach markets outside of the Permian Basin. We also continue to work with producers in our area to forecast locations where midstream infrastructure may support increased natural gas capture and reduce flaring.
We are registered with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and adhere to its guidelines for petroleum storage tanks, hydraulic fracturing, injection wells, and waste compliance.
We also adhere to all PHMSA (Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration) guidelines.
