MOSCOW, March 9 (Reuters) - Sakhalin Energy, the operator of
Russia's liquefied natural gas plant Sakhalin 2, is considering
shipment of its first carbon-neutral LNG cargo this year, the
company said on Tuesday.
It said it will decide on the cargo size and the buyer
Equity holders in Sakhalin Energy, which operates the LNG
plant off Russia's Pacific Ocean coast, include Gazprom
, Royal Dutch Shell, and Japan's Mitsui
and Mitsubishi Corp.
Gazprom said on Monday it had delivered its first
carbon-neutral shipment of LNG to Europe.
Gazprom said its shipment of Russian LNG, which it said was
made carbon neutral by offsetting emissions resulting from its
production and transport, had been delivered to Royal Dutch
Shell at the Dragon terminal in Wales.
