An independent evaluation of carbon emissions in the LNG sector

A detailed independent evaluation of carbon emissions along the LNG value chain

Evolving emissions policies and changing corporate positioning is leading to increased emphasis on the transparency of emissions associated with the production and supply of LNG into the global market.  While the availability of “primary” data is increasing in some parts of the value chain there is still a significant requirement for reliable sources of “secondary data” to provide a comprehensive picture of emissions from source to final consumption.

Sellers, buyers, regulators, and traders are becoming more focussed on the carbon footprint of LNG supplies.  As a result, in the absence of primary data, there is an ongoing need to provide counterparties with a credible estimation of the emissions associated with LNG cargoes from projects across the globe.  In addition, understanding the competitive positioning of projects based on their carbon intensity, and the potential implications of possible carbon costs, can inform buying strategies.

The LNG Carbon Emissions Tool 2024 builds on the success of the 2021 version as an independent and transparent source of detailed secondary data, providing a more granular estimation of carbon emissions along the LNG value chain, enhanced coverage of LNG supply projects, shipping and import terminals and greater user flexibility.
