More energy better delivered

We are responding to the challenge of a low carbon future in LNG. The demand for gas from LNG is growing as it offers a much cleaner alternative to coal for power generation and provides a valuable back-up for renewables intermittency. It also supplies heating at the high temperatures required by industry andis increasingly used in transportation. With gas in high demand for years to come, BP’s LNG portfolio will play an important role in delivering more gas and reducing emissions.
