Inpex supplies carbon-neutral Ichthys LNG to Toho
Inpex Corp said on September 13 it was suppling a carbon-neutral LNG from the Ichthys LNG project to fellow Japanese utility Toho Gas. The shipment is expected to arrive at Chita LNG terminal in Aichi Prefecture, Japan, on September 18.
The carbon footprint of the LNG shipment has been offset using carbon credits applied to greenhouse gas emissions across the entire natural gas supply chain including upstream production, liquefaction, transportation, regasification, marketing and combustion by customers in Japan, Inpex said. The 8.9mn mt/yr Ichthys LNG project. located in Australia, is operated by Inpex.
The supply of carbon-neutral LNG shipment to Toho is aligned with Inpex’s strategy to be net-zero by 2050 and contributes to the reduction of CO2 emissions from the company’s upstream operations as well as to CO2 reduction efforts across its entire value chain, the company said.
