Russia for the first time supplied "green LNG" to Europe


For the first time, the Russian gas corporation Gazprom supplied European consumers with liquefied natural gas with zero CO2 emissions. Green LNG was obtained from Russian partners by the Anglo-Dutch company Shell Global LNG Limited and is intended for residents of the UK.


The cargo with Russian liquefied gas arrived at the Dragon LNG terminal in Wales. According to Shell, an average of 70 a tonne batch of this gas fuel emits about 240 thousand tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent along the entire value chain. To offset these emissions, so-called carbon credits are used.

According to Steve Hill, vice president of the Anglo-Dutch company, Shell is grateful to the Russian corporation for cooperation. Earlier, Shell Global LNG Limited has already delivered seven consignments of such natural gas to Asian consumers, and now the British will be able to use such fuel.

According to information reflected in Gazprom's press release, both companies use Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and Climate, Community and Biodiversity emission certificates to offset the carbon footprint of the LNG consignment. The emission quotas used in the mutual settlements will be canceled, and the liquefied gas shipment becomes neutral in terms of emissions throughout the entire life cycle of the gas - from production to consumption.

    Great news, for a couple of years or a little more, and we will drive such green fuel down the pipe to them.

      What's green in it? the tax for harmfulness was paid and that's it.

      A carbon loan is a financial instrument that allows the holder, usually an energy company, to emit one ton of carbon dioxide.

    Every whim for your money. Want green? Yes, please, but it's more expensive. So in the invoice and write ... winked
    Do they identify CO2 emissions by scent? smile

    - What is it like? Have you invented another element in the periodic table?

      Have you invented another element in the periodic table?

      Well, in general, there is such an element in the periodic table.
      This is hydrogen.
      When hydrogen is burned, water is formed.

        I will add, with your permission, and if you mix it with ordinary gas (methane) 1 hydrogen to 10 methane, then CO2 emissions are reduced to zero.

          No ... there is some mistake in the article about "zero CO2 emissions".
          Something else, apparently, was meant in terms of the "green LPG".

            You are right, now I looked on the net what it was about, the situation is exactly as you said.

          I am amazed at these victims of the exam! And where does the carbon that is part of the methane molecule go to?
          If 10% hydrogen is added to methane, the CO2 content in combustion products will also decrease by 10 percent.

            Naturally.
            And according to the article. Everything is somehow tricky with this "zero CO2":

            “Natural gas is the cleanest fossil fuel in terms of emissions,” said Elena Burmistrova, Deputy Chairman of the Management Board of Gazprom, General Director of Gazprom Export.

            The agreement provides for the joint offset of the batch's carbon footprint with Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and Climate, Community and Biodiversity (CCB) emission certificates. The CO2 emission quotas used in the deal will be canceled, Gazprom said.

            In short, I reread it several times, but the meaning did not reach me.)

    In general, of course, to call LNG - green, is sacrilege.)

    To liquefy gas, energy is required equal to 25% of the energy capacity of the gas itself being burned. So that...

    In the article (or in translation), they simply could not clearly explain the essence of the matter.
    Our country is large, there is a lot of forests, and energy consumption per capita is much lower than that of the West.
    Therefore, our country has an advantage in terms of hydrocarbon combustion quotas. According to the Kyoto and then the Paris agreements, we do not choose our quotas. And the West is sorting them out.
    Under these agreements, we have the right to sell our quotas to those who sort them out. But the West sent all the agreements and refused to buy quotas from us.
    There is nowhere to put these quotas anyway. Over the past years, they have accumulated immeasurably. These are the documents for these quotas and are handed over to the buyers of gas. That is, we do not pay real money, of course. And buyers compensate for their overkill in terms of quotas for the combustion of hydrocarbons.
    This is yet another nail in the coffin of "American" LNG sales. They have no such opportunity. They have the worst burnout in the world.

    And, that is, Gazprom gives quotas to uncle / aunt ... Not for thanks, of course, but for left kickbacks (offset, according to the article)

    Therefore, such a confused translation, so as not to understand the essence ...

      Nobody has been buying these quotas from us for many years. So, there are hardly any kickbacks. Just creating additional competitive advantage.

    the presence of compounds of copper, barium, molybdenum, antimony, phosphorus gives a green flame.

    and what they were not satisfied with the usual? With additives - more expensive, but green!
