Total’s first shipment of carbon neutral LNG has been delivered from Ichthys to the Chinese National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC).
The shipment was delivered last month to the Dapeng terminal in China, with the loading operation carried out at the Ichthys liquefaction plant in Australia.
“This first LNG shipment, whose carbon emissions have been offset throughout the value chain, represents a new step as we seek to support our customers towards carbon neutrality,” he said.
“The development of LNG is essential to meet the growth in global demand for energy while reducing the carbon intensity of the energy products consumed.”
The LNG shipment’s carbon footprint was offset with Verified Carbon Standards emissions certificates financing two projects, being the Hebei Guyuan Wind Power Project and the Kariba REDD+ Forest Protection Project.
