With pipeline gas projects, it’s relatively rare for CO2 to be removed prior to transportation to market due to cost. As such, the contaminating CO2 is then emitted when the natural gas is burnt in the consuming market and therefore is not considered part of the upstream emissions.
While the levels of carbon emissions associated with LNG production are significantly higher than those for pipeline gas projects, it is still considerably less carbon intensive from a life-cycle emissions perspective than coal, its main fossil fuel competitor in the power sector.
