McDermott wraps up net zero LNG construction study for Shell


United StatesMcDermott recently completed a liquefied natural gas (LNG) construction study for Shell Global Solutions International identifying tangible reduction pathways toward net-zero construction emissions.

The study’s findings offer a strategic framework for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in LNG facilities during the project execution phase.

The study’s findings include quantifiable emission reduction opportunities based on mapping key sources and identifying low-carbon alternatives during construction. These include increasing site efficiency, replacing diesel-powered equipment with lower-GHG-intensity alternatives, module fabrication and construction, and sourcing lower-intensity raw materials. The study also sheds more light on the environmental, social, and economic implications of future projects.

Based on the findings of this study, McDermott is working with Shell to identify low-carbon solutions to help reduce GHG emissions in McDermott’s operations.
