Singapore’s Pavilion Energy, a unit of Temasek, said it had taken delivery of its first liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo paired with a statement of greenhouse gas emissions.
The 2015-built 159,800-cbm, Maran Gas Troy, delivered the LNG shipment to the Singapore LNG terminal on Jurong Island, while QatarEnergy supplied the shipment, according to a statement by Pavilion Energy.
The statement of greenhouse gas emissions (SGE) verifies GHG emissions associated with producing and delivering an LNG cargo from wellhead to discharge terminal, it said.
Pavilion Energy jointly developed the methodology with QatarEnergy and also Chevron.
The LNG firm said the methodology seeks to become a common standard to measure, report and verify GHG emissions along the LNG value chain to drive greater transparency and enable stronger action on GHG reduction measures.
Also, intended for wide adoption, it paves the way for enhanced strategies towards a lower carbon future, the company said.
Since its publication in 2021, the partners have applied the SGE methodology on six delivered LNG cargoes, Pavilion Energy said.
Alan Heng, group CEO of Pavilion Energy expects natural gas to “continue playing a key role in helping economies transit to a low carbon future for years to come.”
“With the SGE methodology, we see it as a way to be accountable for the carbon emissions of LNG cargoes delivered and are elated to receive our first SGE methodology-certified cargo in Singapore,” he said.
