We consider the local projection finite element method for the discretization of a scalar convection-diffusion equation with a divergence-free convection field. We introduce a new fluctuation operator which is defined using an orthogonal L2 projection with respect to a weighted L2 inner product. We prove that the bilinear form corresponding to the discrete problem satisfies an inf-sup condition with respect to the SUPG norm and derive an error estimate for the discrete solution.
