Taiwan’s CPC Corp receives carbon offset LNG cargo from BP
BP Singapore, a unit of the UK-based oil and gas major BP, has delivered its first carbon offset LNG cargo in the Asia-Pacific region to Taiwan’s energy player CPC Corporation.
BP Singapore supplied the cargo to the Yung-An terminal in Taiwan.
CO2 and CH4 (methane) emissions associated with the LNG cargo were estimated using BP’s GHG quantification methodology for LNG.
BP says the new carbon offset LNG strengthens its offering in the region. Indeed, this marks the company’s first delivery of carbon offset LNG in the Asia-Pacific.
“Natural gas has a key role to play in getting the world to net zero. This new offer further demonstrates our determination to remain one of the world’s leading and most innovative LNG suppliers,” said Carol Howle, EVP trading & shipping.
To remind, CPC Corp has previously received carbon-neutral LNG cargos from Shell and Eni as well.
Moreover, this follows BP’s first delivery to Sempra LNG’s Mexico terminal in July.
