bp delivers its first carbon offset LNG cargo in Asia-‎Pacific to CPC Corporation, Taiwan

Release date:
6 September 2021
  • The first delivery in the Asia-Pacific region under bp’s new carbon offset liquefied ‎natural gas (LNG) offer.
  • ‎bp estimated the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from wellhead to discharge ‎terminal associated with the specific source and voyage for the LNG cargo, using ‎its own quantification methodology.‎
  • The credits that will be retired for this carbon offset LNG cargo are from bp’s ‎carbon trading portfolio.

BP Singapore Pte. Limited (“bp Singapore”) today announced that it has delivered its ‎first carbon offset liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo to CPC Corporation, Taiwan ‎‎(“CPC”), to the Yung An terminal in Taiwan in September 2021 and was sourced ‎from bp’s LNG portfolio.‎


This is bp’s first delivery of carbon offset LNG in the Asia-Pacific region, following its ‎first delivery globally to Sempra LNG at the Energia Costa Azul terminal in Mexico in ‎July 2021. This new carbon offset LNG offer strengthens bp’s natural gas offering in ‎the region.‎


Carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) emissions associated with the LNG cargo, ‎from wellhead to discharge terminal for the specific source and voyage, were ‎estimated using bp’s GHG quantification methodology for LNG. The methodology has ‎been developed having regard to relevant international standards and incorporating ‎input from third party experts including the Wood Mackenzie LNG Carbon Emissions ‎Tool, and may be updated from time to time.


Global demand for LNG is growing rapidly. bp intends to continue supporting this ‎growth by diversifying its offer, including by developing bundled carbon offset LNG ‎products to meet customers’ demand.

 

“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.”
