Shell Downstream LNG

Shell is a global group of energy and petrochemicals companies, with around 86.000 employees on average, operating in more than 70 countries and territories. Shell’s purpose is to power progress together with more and cleaner energy solutions. Shell believes that rising standards of living for a growing global population are likely to continue to drive demand for energy, including oil and gas, for years to come.

At the same time, technology changes and the need to tackle climate change means there is a transition underway to a lower-carbon, multisource energy system. Shell is responding to society’s desire for more and cleaner, convenient and competitive energy, by using advanced technologies and innovative approaches to help build a sustainable energy future. Shell is a global leader and a pioneer in the LNG industry.

Shell helped design and built the first commercial onshore LNG plant and the world’s first LNG Carriers in 1964 – and has been designing and building such ships and plants ever since. In the retail business, Shell operates more than 43.000 fuel retail sites worldwide, and is one of the largest retailers in the world. The Shell Retail business has an ambition to generate 20% of its fuels margin from low-emission energy solutions at company-owned Shell Stations by 2025. Shell already has six LNG Retail stations in The Netherlands, one in Belgium and a further site in Germany that was opened in 2018. Shell has high safety and environmental standards to ensure measures are taken to protect both people and the environment. These include ensuring zero methane emissions from LNG operations on sites, overfill and overpressure protection of LNG tanks, and gas detection in all areas of operation.

Nordsol

Nordsol is committed to making BioLNG mainstream as a clean and safe advanced biofuel that is widely available at an affordable price.

To achieve this they are bridging the gap between the worlds of waste management and transport fuels. With the use of its proven, smart and innovative patented technology, Nordsol will build and operate its own BioLNG facilities together with biogas production partners grounded by a solid business framework.

The unique Nordsol technology, branded as iLNG, is essentially the use of conventional and proven technologies integrated into a less complex process scheme. Process inefficiencies are eliminated by leaving the traditional approach, hence making optimal use of synergies between the upgrading and liquefaction processes. Only this makes the process for the scale of biogas economically viable.

BioLNG or liquified Biomethane is a biofuel made by processing organic waste flows. Biogas develops when anaerobic digestion occurs; biological matter breaks down and gas is emitted in the process. BioLNG is practically CO2 neutral and has all the advantages of LNG versus diesel, including reduced CO2 emission, lower engine sound, lower NOx and significantly less pm (particulate matter) emission. Additionally, liquid BioCO2 will be separated out of the biogas stream and offered for use in the industry. With the Nordsol BioLNG solution, the function of biogas is upgraded to the next level of decarbonization, supporting a more environmentally friendly form of LNG along with a reduction of our carbon footprint.

This BioLNG EuroNet project can greatly benefit Nordsol, and in return, Nordsol can help achieve the European Union’s energy-efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction goals.
