Petronas delivers carbon neutral LNG cargo to Hiroshima Gas
Malaysia LNG, a subsidiary of state-owned Petronas, has delivered carbon-neutral LNG cargo to Japanese city gas company Hiroshima Gas, Petronas said on January 10. This is the first-ever carbon-neutral LNG cargo imported by Hiroshima Gas.
Petronas vice president of LNG marketing & trading, Shamsairi Ibrahim, said providing cleaner energy solutions through carbon offsets will not only positively impact the LNG industry but will also create sustainable value for businesses, societies and the world at large.
“Our business as a city gas supplier is seeing an increasing need to offer carbon-neutral city gas to our end-buyers. Petronas’ ability to provide such solution is certainly essential to ensure we are on track in our sustainability goals,” Hiroshima Gas senior executive officer, Kazunori Tamura said. Hiroshima Gas plans to be net-zero by 2050.
