BAKU, Azerbaijan, April 19. The liquified natural gas (LNG) supply chain needs to reduce its GHG emissions to the greatest extent possible, Anatol Feygin, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer of Cheniere Energy, told Global Voice of Gas, Trend reports.
“We believe that this is a ‘social licence to operate’ issue for the LNG industry. As part of that drive we believe that more accurate and more complete data are required, as well as greater data transparency, so that better-informed decisions can be made. This is what drives us to take on an industryleading role with actionable, innovative solutions like Cargo Emission Tags and our other collaborations on emissions transparency and science. For example, we are collaborating with natural gas producers and leading academic institutions to improve the overall understanding of upstream GHG emissions through quantification, monitoring, reporting and verifying (QMRV) of those emissions. This collaboration utilises multiple technologies including ground-based, drone, aerial, and satellite monitoring to establish baseline emissions levels. The initiative will also verify emissions performance and identify opportunities to reduce emissions,” he said.
Anatol Feygin pointed out that the industry is just beginning this journey and has yet to figure out what equipment to use, much less what these monikers mean, but the company is determined to find effective solutions that can be deployed at scale.
