The journey to net-zero emissions LNG

It has become clear that achieving emissions targets and meeting the world’s growing demand for power will require a mix of generation from cost-competitive renewables and cleaner-burning hydrocarbons—most notably natural gas. Through 2040, the two are expected to make up 80% of additional energy demand (from today), with gas taking the lion’s share at 43%. Despite its emergence as a bridge fuel to a future where renewables dominate the energy landscape, the environmental impact associated with producing, transporting and delivering natural gas in the form of LNG to…
