Full Title: Lifecycle GHG Emissions from LNG Exports Author(s): N/A Publisher(s): ICF International Publication Date: 2/2014 Full Text: ->DOWNLOAD DOCUMENT<- Several articles have recently raised concerns over the potential lifecycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from U.S. LNG exports. The Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN) has released an analysis of lifecycle emissions from U.S. LNG exports that states that the GHG emissions from exported natural gas could have higher life‐cycle emissions than those from coal due to methane emissions from gas production and transmission. This paper reviews the CCAN paper and corrects some omissions and errors in the analysis. The summary of our conclusions is: While the CCAN paper states that exported LNG would have GHG emissions 20% lower than coal based on the most recent official U.S. estimates of methane emissions, the LNG emissions would actually be 43 to 52% lower based on more standard assumptions and a more complete analysis. The paper suggests that methane emissions from natural gas might be 4 to 8 times higher than the official EPA estimate, but the cited references do not support that suggestion. In contrast, other recent studies suggest that emissions could be lower and that recent new regulations will result in lower emissions in the future. Based on the best available data and using standard assumptions, exported LNG would have GHG emissions 43% to 52% lower than coal.
