Global multi-sector industry coalition SEA-LNG in August said its member Fortis B.C. commissioned Sphera (formerly Thinkstep), a global provider of Integrated Risk Management software, for a lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions analysis of its Tilbury facility.
The study found that on average Fortis B.C.’s LNG is produced with about one-third lower GHG emissions when compared to other production methods used by global LNG producers.
In particular, using LNG as a marine fuel from Tilbury could reduce GHG emissions coming into British Columbia by up to 27% due to the plant’s usage of clean, renewable hydropower as opposed to facilities that are powered by gas turbines, said SEA-LNG.
Efforts such as those by Fortis B.C are clear examples of why LNG as a marine fuel is best placed to tackle GHG emissions now, while paving a cleaner pathway to IMO 2050 thanks to liquified biomethane and liquified synthetic methane, it said.
