Often championed as a “bridge fuel” to move away from “dirtier” fossil fuels, LNG has been touted as “cleaner” because just the combustion phase has lower carbon dioxide emissions than coal or oil. However, when LNG’s entire lifecycle is taken into account, LNG is neither clean nor particularly low in emissions.
