Woodside Petroleum CEO Peter Coleman has told the LNG 2019 conference in Shanghai that the industry can take a leading role in reducing global greenhouse gas emissions. Amongst other things, he says LNG can replace fuels that generate higher emissions, including in the road transport and shipping industries. Coleman also argued the case for a global price on carbon, but cautioned that policies aimed at reducing carbon emissions will fail if they are regarded as having a negative impact on jobs and prosperity.
