Enagas and a unit of BP have teamed up to promote the use of LNG and CNG as fuel for the transport sector in Spain as part of a move to reduce emissions.

The collaboration deal signed on Thursday also includes the promotion of renewable gases, and entrepreneurship and innovation projects.

 

Enagas, through its unit Scale Gas, will develop LNG and CNG filling stations within the network of BP’s service stations, according to a joint statement.

 

Under the deal, the duo will also promote the use of renewable gas in an attempt to boost its role in the Spanish energy mix.

 

To this end, BP will buy biomethane produced by Enagas’ company, Bioengas.

 

The energy giant will also take part in the creation of a national biomethane market in Spain and help identify new opportunities, the statement said.

 

Net zero by 2050
UK-based BP said earlier this year it aims to become zero carbon emitter by 2050, setting one of the industry’s most ambitious climate targets.

 

The company layed out five goals which include achieving a net zero status across BP’s operations and oil and gas production.

 

The goals also include 50% cut in the carbon intensity of products BP sells and boosting investment into non-oil and gas businesses.

 

The current market turmoil related to the Covid-19 pandemic only “reaffirms the need to achieve the purpose of re-imagining energy,” the statement said.

 

In the meantime, BP has “gradually focused” its investments in low-emission activities, in addition to this new deal with Enagas.

 

The Spanish LNG terminal operator also aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
