Webinar — Certified Natural Gas: The Future of LNG?

Webinar — Certified Natural Gas: The Future of LNG?

Oil and gas producers and their customers are facing increasing pressure from investors, regulators and end-users to decarbonize their products and processes and improve their environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance. Customer demands and market forces are driving LNG exporters in particular to demonstrate that their LNG has been produced with lower methane and carbon dioxide emissions. In response, a number of U.S. LNG exporters have announced a variety of approaches to reduce or offset their emissions. However, the lack of a uniform standard for measuring, reporting and verifying these claims is driving players — buyers and sellers — to seek greater transparency and an independent verification of these claims.

At this event, a panel of experts examined the commercial, financial, ESG and regulatory drivers of this trend and how claims of reduced methane and CO2 emissions can be measured and verified. They also discussed whether this trend will lead to the development of a two-tier market for natural gas and LNG — one for a traditional LNG product, and one for a premium, lower-carbon, higher-ESG product.
