Shell (RDS.A) Receives Europe’s First Carbon-Neutral LNG Delivery

Zacks Equity Research

Royal Dutch Shell Plc RDS.A, through its subsidiary Shell Global LNG, accepted the delivery of the first carbon-neutral liquefied natural gas (“LNG”) in Europe from Gazprom.

Notably, Gazprom is a global energy company and is recognized as one of the largest producers and exporters of LNG in Russia.

The carbon-neutral gas had been delivered at the Dragon terminal in Wales, which is a LNG regasification terminal in the U.K., owned by Shell. Importantly, this will allow Shell to further supply it to the domestic energy markets in the U.K.

The Russian LNG was formed carbon-free by neutralizing the emissions arising from its production and transportation. Generally, carbon-neutral LNG includes businesses, which support nature-based projects that attempt to lower emissions to balance out those arising from the exploration and production of natural gas.

Shell and Russian energy giant Gazprom are offsetting the environmental impacts of the delivery through the Verified Carbon Standard and the Climate, Community and Biodiversity carbon credit standards.

Notably, Shell has already delivered seven carbon-neutral cargoes in Asia and this shipment acknowledges the fact that natural gas helps to combat climate change and its impacts as it emits 45-55% less greenhouse gas emissions and lower than one-tenth of the air pollutants than coal if used to produce electricity.
