For Gas Buyers

MiQ Certification helps gas buyers better understand what they’re buying and the impact it is having on the planet. Our A-F grading provides the transparency that buyers and their consumers demand, as everyone works to protect the planet.

No matter what your ESG goals are, MiQ provides reliable and verified metrics on methane emission performance, that fit into broader GHG accounting objectives (Scope 3). Our Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) framework tracks individual supply routes across segments and regardless of the number of operators and owners involved – whether integrated or highly fragmented.

MiQ applies the same methodology to the characteristics of each supply chain segment to provide comparable emission performance figures that reliably describe overall environmental impact.

MiQ Certificates are issued based on actual natural gas volumes produced and producers’ performance with the ability to gradually add performance of each segment involved subsequently – from gathering and boosting, processing, transport via pipeline or LNG, and storage – into the final distribution network.

MiQ Zones encompass regional market areas to ensure liquidity while allowing to track transfer of gas and certificates from one zone to another.
