Cheniere to Offer LNG Cargo Emissions Data Amid Climate Pressure

Cheniere Energy Inc. has become the latest big supplier of liquefied natural gas to say it will provide customers with emissions data as concern grows over the fuel’s contributions to climate change.

The data will quantify the estimated greenhouse gas emissions from wellhead to delivery point for LNG cargoes produced at Cheniere’s Sabine Pass export terminal in Louisiana and its Corpus Christi terminal in Texas, the company said Wednesday in a statement.

Suppliers of the fuel are under increasing pressure from investors and environmental groups to disclose emissions. Earlier this month, Chevron Corp. signed a long-term supply deal with Singapore’s Pavilion Energy Pte that details each cargo’s carbon footprint.

Cheniere, the biggest U.S. LNG exporter, expects to provide the so-called cargo emissions tags from next year. The tags will use the company’s own lifecycle analysis model, public data from value chain participants and operational data from Cheniere’s export terminals.
