Gazprom delivered the first shipment of carbon neutral liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Europe. This was announced by Elena Burmistrova, General Director of Gazprom Export company.
“Today the Gazprom Group delivered the first carbon-neutral LNG consignment in the Atlantic Basin. A cargo of Russian-made liquefied gas was delivered to the Dragon terminal in the UK by Gazprom Global E-nG Limited. The buyer was Royal Dutch Shell, the company said in a press release.
According to Burmistrova, this first delivery for Gazprom, implemented jointly with Shell, “is another confirmation that the gas industry contributes to climate goals.”
“Natural gas is the cleanest fossil fuel in terms of emissions,” she recalled.
Earlier, the Russian company NOVATEK signed an agreement with the Chinese Shenergy Group for the supply of over 3 million tons of liquefied natural gas to China over 15 years.
