Specifically, the deal entails the delivery of up to 0.8 million tons of LNG per annum (mtpa) for a duration of 16 years, commencing in 2027, TotalEnergies said, adding that the LNG will be sourced from its global portfolio.

To note, this new agreement adds to the two companies’ current LNG SPA, which runs until 2029. This deal was signed back in 2022.

As for TotalEnergies’ other recent LNG activities, it is worth noting that at the end of 2023, the French major commissioned the floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) for LNG located in the port of Le Havre.

Moreover, the company signed two long-term LNG SPAs with Qatar’s state-owned energy major QatarEnergy for the supply of up to 3.5 mtpa of LNG from Qatar to France.

TotalEnergies noted that the company’s ambition is to increase its LNG production and long-term purchases by 50% by 2030, while continuing to reduce carbon emissions and eliminating the methane emissions associated with the gas value chain.
