Trio develops a method to report emissions from LNG deliveries


Pavilion Energy, QatarEnergy and Chevron announced that they have jointly published a quantification and reporting methodology to produce a statement of greenhouse gas emissions (GES) for liquefied natural gas (LNG) delivered.

This is the first published methodology of this type to be applied to sales and purchase contracts. Intended for wide adoption, the methodology provides a framework for calculating and reporting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from wellhead to landfill terminal based on industry standards.

the EMS methodology was developed by a team of technical specialists representing the three companies and supported by the sustainable development consultancy Environmental Resources Management. The stated objective is to create a common standard for the measurement, declaration and verification of GHG emissions associated with the production and delivery of LNG cargoes in order to promote greater transparency and allow stronger action on GHG reduction measures.

“We have jointly developed this LNG Carbon Footprint Methodology for Delivered Cargoes to help advance a standard for GHG accounting at the product level,” said Bruce Niemeyer, vice president of strategy and Chevron durability. “This methodology is expected to improve transparency, improve accuracy and build stakeholder confidence in the reliability of data to help advance net zero ambitions.”

Independent academic experts, commercial institutions and audit organizations have reviewed the EMS methodology. It complements key industry efforts developed in parallel, in particular the GHG neutral LNG monitoring, reporting and verification and framework published by the International Group of LNG Importers.

the EMS methodology sets the tone for increased accountability for emissions throughout the LNG value chain, paving the way for more decarbonization strategies towards a low-carbon future, ”said Alan Heng, Interim Group CEO of Pavilion Energy.
