Life Cycle Greenhouse Gas Perspective on Exporting Liquefied Natural Gas from the United States

You are here

This analysis calculates the life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for regional coal and imported natural gas power in Europe and Asia. The primary research questions are as follows:
•How does exported liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the U.S. compare with regional coal (or other LNG sources) for electric power generation in Europe and Asia, from a life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) perspective?
•How do those results compare with natural gas sourced from Russia and delivered to the same European and Asian markets via pipeline?
