Chevron

Chevron is aggressively running its “methane in the pipe” advertising campaign, but its climate strategy has been dubbed "worst among its peers."

At the same time the company owns local news outlets in several communities where it operates that publish articles promoting the company’s image while ignoring or under-reporting stories about its pollution events and environmental violations.

Total Energies​

One of the world’s largest oil and gas producers, Total has established near-term methane emissions goals, but the company is one of the top methane polluters in the U.S. In Texas, the company has earned a notorious track record for drilling and polluting the air, just hundreds of feet away from homes, schools, and playgrounds.

Diversified Energies
Diversified, the largest owner of oil and gas wells in the U.S., was the focus of a Bloomberg investigation in 2021 that found widespread gas leaks at its aging production installations. The company has farther to go to slash methane pollution than almost any other company in the country.

Hilcorp
Hilcorp has consistently ranked as the #1 methane polluter in the U.S. oil and gas industry. The company has built its business model on buying up older and more polluting wells. From New Mexico to Alaska to Ohio the company continues to leak and incur fines in the name of increasing profits, all while putting frontline communities at risk.

ExxonMobil

Despite being one of the top methane polluters in the U.S., and one of the world’s largest greenhouse gas emitters, Exxon’s chief executive Darren Woods instead blamed the public for the failure to address climate change, saying: “The people who are generating those emissions need to be aware of and pay the price for generating those emissions. That is ultimately how you solve the problem.” For decades, Exxon knew, and worked to obstruct, action to address fossil fuel use and the climate crisis.
