Greenhouse Intensity of Natural Gas Transport – Comparing the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline to LNG Import Alternatives
April 10, 2017 | This study by thinkstep compares the supply chain emissions for natural gas delivered to Europe via the Nord Stream 2 pipeline with LNG shipped from five potential source regions. The pipeline is found to have a smaller carbon footprint than the LNG options analysed for future imports. The Nord Stream 2 route from the Bovanenkovo field in Northern Russia to Greifswald, Germany would produce 2.4 to 4.6 times less greenhouse gas emissions than the LNG shipments, depending on the source of the liquefied gas.
