LNG Transport: Measuring And Minimising Methane Emissions

Funding source: The Collaboratory to Advance Methane Science (CAMS); and Enagas SA
Start: 02-11-2020  /  End: 31-12-2021
Amount: £408,907

This is a first-of-a-kind project to measure total methane emissions from an LNG (liquefied natural gas) carrier ship. The research will help determine effective measurement methodologies for shipping methane emissions, and provide the first data point in understanding how much to ships contribute to natural gas supply chain emissions.
