Total has delivered its first shipment of carbon neutral LNG to the Chinese National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC).

The loading operation was carried out at the Ichthys liquefaction plant in Australia, and the shipment was delivered on 29th September to the Dapeng terminal, China.

“This first LNG shipment, whose carbon emissions have been offset throughout the value chain, represents a new step as we seek to support our customers towards carbon neutrality,” said Laurent Vivier, President for Gas at Total.

“The development of LNG is essential to meet the growth in global demand for energy while reducing the carbon intensity of the energy products consumed.”
