Save for later Print Download Share LinkedIn Twitter BP has delivered a carbon-neutral LNG cargo to Sempra LNG's Energia Costa Azul (ECA) LNG plant in Mexico -- a carbon-neutral first for both companies (LNGI Dec.17'20). The cargo arrived aboard the 174,000 cubic meter capacity BW Helios on Jul. 16, according to Kpler tracking. It was sourced from the UK major’s global portfolio and delivered under a contract signed with Sempra LNG and its Mexican subsidiary, IEnova. Carbon Methodology Carbon dioxide and methane emissions associated with the LNG cargo, from wellhead to discharge terminal, will be estimated using BP’s own GHG quantification methodology for LNG. These estimated emissions will be offset by retiring a corresponding amount of carbon credits, sourced from a Mexican afforestation project from BP’s vetted portfolio of offsets on behalf of Sempra LNG. IEnova and Sempra LNG each intend to develop “bundled carbon offset LNG products to help meet customers’ demand,” BP said in a statement Friday (LNGI Jun.11'21). New Liquefaction, But Imports to Continue Sempra and IEnova are currently adding LNG export facilities at ECA following last year's sole worldwide final investment decision for liquefaction (LNGI Nov.17'20). The terminal will continue to import, however, serving a long-term sales and purchase agreement between BP and its partners in Tangguh LNG and Sempra LNG.
