Petronas has delivered its first ‘carbon-neutral’ liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo to Japan.

The cargo has been sent to Shikoku Electric from Bintulu, on the island of Borneo, with Petronas claiming it has offset the lifecycle carbon footprint of the LNG – making it ‘carbon-neutral’.

It has stated that the renewables-based carbon credits it purchased cover the emissions generated from the production, transportation, liquefaction and shipping of the LNG.

President and Group Chief Executive Officer, Tengku Muhammad Taufik, said: “We are grateful to have collaborated with Shikoku Electric on the delivery of our very first carbon-neutral LNG cargo that coincides with the date of our 47th anniversary.

“For Petronas, this is a significant milestone as we forge ahead to deliver cleaner energy solutions that fuel progress in a responsible manner.”
