Pavilion Energy, a Singapore-based energy company, has received its first LNG cargo accompanied by a statement of greenhouse gas emissions (SGE) from QatarEnergy at the Singapore LNG terminal, it said on May 16. This SGE is a verified statement that quantifies the greenhouse gas emissions associated with producing and delivering the LNG cargo from the wellhead to the discharge terminal.
The SGE methodology was collaboratively developed by Pavilion Energy, QatarEnergy, and Chevron. Its purpose is to establish a standardised approach to measuring, reporting, and verifying greenhouse gas emissions across the entire LNG value chain.
The goal of this common standard is to enhance transparency and facilitate stronger actions towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The methodology was designed to be widely adopted and serves as a foundation for developing strategies aimed at achieving a lower carbon future. Since its release in 2021, the SGE methodology has been applied to six delivered LNG cargoes.
Alan Heng, CEO of Pavilion Energy, expressed enthusiasm about the SGE methodology and its potential to account for the carbon emissions of LNG cargoes. He emphasised that natural gas is expected to continue playing a significant role in facilitating the transition to a low-carbon future for many years to come.
The implementation of the SGE methodology allows Pavilion Energy to take responsibility for the carbon emissions associated with the LNG cargoes they receive and contributes to their commitment to sustainability, he said.
