FINDLAY, Ohio, Feb. 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- MPLX LP (NYSE: MPLX) has established a new 2030 target to reduce methane emissions intensity by 75% below 2016 levels. The reduction target applies to MPLX's natural gas gathering and processing operations and represents an expansion of the company's existing 2025 target to reduce methane emissions intensity by 50% below 2016 levels.

MPLX has achieved an approximate 45% reduction in its methane emissions intensity toward its 2025 goal through its Focus on Methane program, a holistic approach to voluntarily reduce methane emissions intensity across MPLX's natural gas gathering and processing operations.

"Expanding on our methane target further reduces the carbon profile of our natural gas business and demonstrates our commitment to lead in sustainable energy," said MPLX Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Michael J. Hennigan. "As the energy industry evolves, we are positioning ourselves to continue delivering positive results in an energy-diverse future."


MPLX is a diversified, large-cap master limited partnership that owns and operates midstream energy infrastructure and logistics assets and provides fuels distribution services. MPLX's assets include a network of crude oil and refined product pipelines; an inland marine business; light-product terminals; storage caverns; refinery tanks, docks, loading racks, and associated piping; and crude and light-product marine terminals. The company also owns crude oil and natural gas gathering systems and pipelines as well as natural gas and NGL processing and fractionation facilities in key U.S. supply basins.
