Of all the fossil fuels, natural gas has the lowest level of carbon dioxide emission per unit of energy. For an equivalent amount of heat, burning natural gas produces about 30% less carbon dioxide than burning petroleum and about 45% less than burning coal. Even factoring in the energy required for liquefaction, transport and re-heating, natural gas still performs as well or better than alternatives such as coal and fuel oil in terms of carbon efficiency.

In the event of a spill, LNG would not result in a slick. In the absence of an ignition source, LNG evaporates quickly and disperses, leaving no residue. There is no environmental cleanup needed for LNG spills on water or land.

Furthermore, the LNG industry operates within strict industry standards and best practices, which ensure the safety and integrity of all LNG facilities. Atlantic’s safety performance is among the best in the global LNG industry.
