BP supplies Mexico’s first carbon-offset LNG cargo.

The 174,000-m3 LNG carrier delivered the LNG cargo to the Energía Costa Azul terminal in Mexico on 16 July.

SAB de CV entered into a contract for the delivery and receipt of the first carbon offset LNG cargo, sourced from BP’s global LNG portfolio.

IEnova and parent company Sempra LNG are developing bundled carbon offset LNG products to help meet customers’ demand. Sempra LNG has interests in Energía Costa Azul LNG, a 3-mta LNG export facility in Baja California, Mexico. Sempra LNG owns Cameron LNG, the 12-mta LNG export facility in Hackberry, Louisiana.

“We are excited to advance our goal to lower greenhouse gas emission intensity at our LNG facilities,” said Sempra LNG chief executive Justin Bird. “Sempra LNG continues to build a strong business portfolio focused on sustainability and the global energy transition.”

CO2 and methane emissions associated with the LNG cargo, from wellhead to discharge terminal, will be estimated using BP’s GHG quantification methodology for LNG. (July 22, 2021)
