During the Sakhalin Energy forum, the companies expressed their intention of a strategic partnership.

This involves cooperation in decarbonisation, which will begin with the delivery of the first carbon-neutral/offset LNG cargo from the Sakhalin-2 project.

The first shipment of the carbon-neutral LNG cargo from the Sakhalin-2 will take place in early October.

The Russian gas carrier Grand Aniva will deliver it to Toho Gas at Chita LNG Terminal in Aichi Prefecture.

According to the parties involved, this delivery is a key step in the implementation of the corporate Green LNG strategy.

The strategy wants to reduce the carbon footprint of the Sakhalin-2 project. It also wants to ensure Sakhalin Energy’s position in the energy products market.

Meanwhile, the Sakhalin region plans to move away from fossil fuels and become carbon-neutral by 2025.
