Our new report finds that Cheniere’s new lifecycle emissions tags appear to be pinned to a misleading methane emissions analysis that woefully undercounts actual leakage volumes.
Between 2016, following the adoption of the Paris Climate Agreement, and June 2021, public and private financial institutions poured at least $132 billion in lending and underwriting into 964 gas, oil and coal projects in West, East, Central and Southern Africa.

The final three chapters focus on the petrochemical build-out and plastics pollution, regulatory failure of watchdogs, and stories of families on the frontlines of the Permian Basin.
In this six-part series, we explore the ongoing oil, gas, and petrochemical boom in the Permian Basin and Gulf Coast. It is a story of runaway toxic infrastructure, environmental injustice, and climate overshoot.
Response defends original analysis, confirms enormous impact of the MVP project, and highlights the many false assumptions that have caused FERC to ignore gas pipeline GHGs.
Mountain Valley Pipeline, LLC’s (MVP) attacks on our greenhouse gas methodology are not aligned with the best available science. In fact, the operation of the Mountain Valley Pipeline would contribute significant greenhouse gas pollution, and our methodology for assessing its climate impacts is sound. That’s the conclusion of a letter filed by Oil Change International to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) docket for the Mountain Valley Pipeline Project.
