SEA-LNG member Fortis B.C. commissioned Sphera (formerly Thinkstep) for a lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions analysis of its Tilbury facility. The study found that on average its LNG is produced with about one-third lower GHG emissions than the global LNG supply.
In particular, using LNG as a marine fuel from Tilbury could reduce GHG emissions coming into British Columbia by up to 27% thanks to close proximity to clean, renewable hydropower as oppose to facilities that are powered by gas turbines.
Efforts such as those by Fortis B.C are clear examples of why LNG as a marine fuel is the best placed to tackle GHG emissions now while paving a clear, cleaner pathway to IMO 2050 thanks to liquified biomethane and liquified synthetic methane.
