Air emissions

Tackling local air quality is increasingly important to communities, governments and other stakeholders, driven mainly by public health concerns

 

We monitor our air emissions and put measures in place to reduce the potential impact of our activities on the surrounding community.

 

In our unconventional gas operations in the US, we use lower sulphur fuels in our drilling rig engines and hydraulic stimulation equipment, which reduces sulphur dioxide emissions.

 

In shipping, we are introducing six liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers with energy-efficiency enhancements. They are designed to use approximately 25% less fuel and emit less nitrogen oxides than our older LNG ships.
