Re: AGL LNG imports at Crib Point


While you say gas is the cleanest of fossil fuels, it is not a clean fuel at all. When methane leaks to the environment at every stage of production are taken into account, natural gas has a greenhouse impact as great as that of coal. Methane is a more powerful greenhouse gas than CO2. Methane leakage is generally at least 5% of production. There will be fugitive methane at Crib Point, in addition to the methane emitted from the original gas well, from the pipelines, compressor stations, LNG trains and LNG vessels.
