Cheniere Supplies Carbon Neutral Cargo To Shell

Read Time: 2 mins

Cheniere Energy’s Sabine Pass Liquefaction facility has supplied a carbon neutral cargo of LNG to Shell as part of the companies’ long-term LNG sale and purchase agreement.

Cheniere and Shell worked together to offset the full lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions associated with the LNG cargo by retiring nature-based offsets to account for the estimated CO2e emissions produced through the entire value chain, from production through use by the final consumer.

The carbon-neutral LNG cargo was supplied from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass Liquefaction facility and delivered to Europe in early April. Offsets used were bought from Shell’s global portfolio of nature-based projects with Cheniere purchasing the portion attributable to estimated carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions associated with activities upstream of the FOB delivery point, including production and liquefaction.

Nature-based projects protect, transform, or restore land and enable nature to add oxygen and absorb more CO2 emissions from the atmosphere. Each carbon offset is subject to a third-party verification process and represents the avoidance or removal of 1 tonne of CO2e.

“At Cheniere, we’re focused on measuring, reducing and mitigating emissions, and this first carbon neutral cargo for Cheniere highlights our efforts to measure and mitigate emissions throughout the LNG value chain,” said Anatol Feygin, chief commercial officer of Cheniere.

Earlier this year, Cheniere announced its intent to provide its LNG customers with GHG emissions data associated with each LNG cargo produced at its liquefaction facilities through the company’s Cargo Emissions Tags (CE Tags), beginning in the first half of 2022.
