Shell to ship first carbon-neutral LNG cargo from Oman

The Hague-based energy giant Shell has signed a deal with state-owned producer Oman LNG to ship the first carbon-neutral cargo from the export facility in Qalhat, near Sur.

The cargo would be the “first carbon-neutral LNG from the Middle East using nature-based carbon credits to offset full lifecycle CO2 emissions generated across the LNG value chain,” Oman LNG said in a statement via social media.

The LNG producer did not provide any additional information.

Shell has previously delivered several carbon-neutral shipments in Asia and the latest from the US to Europe.

A Shell spokesperson told LNG Prime in an emailed comment that the firm would deliver the cargo “in the region.” The spokesperson did not provide any additional information.

Oman LNG operates three trains in Qalhat with a total capacity of 10.4 million tonnes per year sourcing gas from the central Oman gas field complex.

Moreover, the government of Oman holds 51% in Oman LNG while Shell has a 30% stake.

Other shareholders include TotalEnergies (5.54%), Korea LNG (5%), Partex (2%), Mitsubishi (2.77%), Mitsui (2.77%) but also Itochu (0.92%).
